    it can be done, but its a very longwinded affair to do it, if you have a normal PC, its possible,

    You need VLC on the PC, download TVERSITY also

    Firstly, you will need to download VLC

    Create a desktop shortcut for VLC, then right click and then click on Properties. Change the target field to this (include the speech marks):

    "C:\Program Files\VideoLAN\VLC\vlc.exe" -vvv http://127.0.0.1:8902/tv.asf --sout "#std{access=mmsh,mux=asfh,dst=:1234}"

    Now open up Sopcast as usual and go to the channel that you want to watch.

    Open up Tversity and add a new Video URL and enter: mms://127.0.0.1:1234

    Open up VLC using your desktop Icon

    Now, switch on your Xbox, go to the media tab, Videos, and then select your Tversity Server. Click Internet Videos and find the new URL you have added, wait for it to Buffer and there you go. You can now watch your Sopcast Broadcast on your TV and someone else can use the PC.

    if your laptop has a HDMI use that or use a VGA and a audio jack for the sound and thats it

    Use the search function above and search for SOPCAST you will see the guide and step by step to do it
