Introduction: Poor Mans Slingbox
Easy way to listen to your sports team when overseas
Step 1: Set TV / Radio to Correct Station
You might adjust the volume to normal.
Step 2: Connect Headphone Out on Radio/tv to Microphone in on PC.
You can sometimes nick this cable from the one that connects the two external PC speakers
Step 3: Make Skype Auto Answer
You will find this setting in Tools/Options/Advanced
Step 4: Skype Yourself From Another Skype Name
When you Skype the home PC the auto answer will enable you to listen to whatever you left you TV/Radio tuned to.
Step 5: Remote Control From Long Distance
Shout down the mic from the distant PC and get someone near the home PC to change the channel.
Step 6: It Works
I am listening to BBC Open commentary in the PRC. HA HA HA to you and your Great Firewall.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
