    HI Mike,

    We have an answer to this issue here, and I am currently not aware of a way to add OTA or cable TV to a Presentation. However hopefully another user in the community can assist!

    Mike, digital signage TVs have this option. But it would not be Rise Vision + TV. Those TVs come with their own digital signage software, which in most cases sux.

    I am not sure if YouTube TV is available where you are from, but that could work if you can figure out the way to embed it (not sure if that is even possible... just remembered this service).

    Also, there is a number of TV live stream available from YouTube (regular, not TV). That works well for us, the Bloomberg channel in particular.

    Mike, do you already have Cable TV or OTA TV service in your building? If so, you just need to transcode the MPEG2 TS into an H.264 stream that your signage player can receive. You'll need an HTML5 H.264 player that you'll embed into the presentation and point at the H.264 video stream.

    Robert, could you elaborate on this? We're running into challenges trying to use a capture card and trying to get the software to display the local camera.

    Jeff, you'll want to avoid capture cards - they're bad juju. The key to getting live video into Rise Vision is to have it on the network as an IP stream. What sort of camera are you using? Could you get one that can output an RTSP H.264 stream? If so, then you just need to embed a player pointed at that local stream into your Rise Vision presentation and away you go. 

    Keep in mind that all of that will have some latency. What's your application?

    Robert, I want to get sporting events in live from cable or satellite box.  I think capture and having the pc grab the camera is the only practical way. They would need to be able to change the channel.

    The Magewell HDMI to usb will get the signal in really good quality. We built an html5 page tgat dispkays it. I just can't get any if the web related widgets to display.  Might have to look at other digital signage service on this one.

    If you've successfully embedded the output of the capture device into a web page have you looked at the debug console in Chrome when previewing the page to see what's blocking the rest of the content from loading?

    Jeff, look at the Digital Signage TVs from Samsung, LG, and maybe Sharp. They often have PIP option for simultaneous TV and signage playback. Not sure if you would be able to use Rise Vision with that, but those TVs have some other proprietary signage software included. Much inferior to RV ,though.
