As you may know I started hosting Charlie Chat... Chat's a long time ago before there was even a DBSTalk.

I plan on keeping the tradition of the Charlie Chat... Chat's alive here at SatelliteGuys!

As you know on Monday Night there will be a special HDTV Edition of the Charlie Chat, the question is should we hold our own chat or should we wait until next month.

Setting up a chat here is NO problem! So it's up to you if we have a chat tommorow night or not. :)

Since the TV is in another room, I will have a hard time watching the Charlie Chat, and chatting here...

But I would be interested in chatting after the Charlie Chat.....hope others are too...

Thanks

Jeff

I keep my tv and computer in the same room because I watch tv while I am on the computer.

shame we can't stream the video of the chat on the same page as the chat window. then everyone can just open a web page and watch and chat at the same time. I wonder if it's technically feasable?

Airing of the chat is VERY technical feasable. :)

However to do so I would need permission from Dish Network as the show is copyrighted by them.

If I did do it I believe I would only air the audio and not the full video stream.

That would be good for those who don't have Dish. :p

Microsoft media encoder is a nice piece of software.... athough I am sure there might be other ways, I doubt there is something as simple and as cheap (free) to stream audio/video. Although I wonder how much bandwidth it takes to stream video to large amounts of people....

Sorry, going off topic a little. Chat sounds good tonight. I'll try to check it out here.

If I did audio of the chat I would use a MP3 based streaming format like Shoutcat, this format is listenable in almost any media player and it does not require a lot of bandwidth.

I also own a RealServer license which would enable me to stream live audio or video. :) Of course the downside of this is the Realplayer would be needed to view the streams and the Real player is a resource hog.

Scott,

How is the Chat on your site going to work? Is there a place to log on?

And are you going to carry the Charlie Chat audio/video?

Thanks

Jeff

To get into the chat tonight, use this link

There will be no audio and video of tonights chat, I am still working on getting permission from echostar to carry the audio.

You can try out the chat now if you want. :)

Hope to see you there tonight. :D
