Summary:

Liz asked folks to submit pictures and descriptions of their web-enabled TV set ups. And thanks to my new favorite NewTeeVee readers, we’ve got more solutions for getting NewTeeVee onto your OldTeeVee than you could ever actually want. And none of them require any Apple vaporware! […]

344620770_33fbfc5a26.jpgLiz asked folks to submit pictures and descriptions of their web-enabled TV set ups. And thanks to my new favorite NewTeeVee readers, we’ve got more solutions for getting NewTeeVee onto your OldTeeVee than you could ever actually want. And none of them require any Apple vaporware! Without further ado…

Most Elegant: Goes to Chuck Dascalos, not the least of which is for the tasteful styling of the setup. That’s just plain classy, Chuck! Also, NewTeeVee looks great, and that’s what’s really important.

Least Elegant: By a landslide is PanMan‘s, who actually broadcast NewTeeVee over the now analog-free Dutch airwaves — and in the jankiest, most jury-rigged way possible. PanMan, you’re a mad genius!

Best Device: The award goes to Andre Sala, who used his Nintendo Wii browser. Like I needed a new reason to rationalize a Wii pruchase.

Honorable mention goes to Greg Rose for putting together a Vlog post on the subject, and Dan for having the most boss system specs (screen pic at top). We’ll see what we can do about invites, guys. And thanks just for playing to Frederic Guarino, Laurent, and everyone else who entered. Their solutions ranged from Radio Shack parts to Vista Media Center software, proving that when there’s a will, there’s a way.

  1. Great!

    But when are you folks going to start producing a weekly video show, rounding up the industry rumblings in a sweet vlog package?

    That would be a whole other contest — how people watch vlogs on their old teevees.

  7. Well, actually, it doesn’t go over the airwaves, but it does go over the analogue cable (but shouldn’t leave my house..). The mad genius note goes in my resume, tho :).
    Thanks for the invite! It was fun to participate!

  8. But PanMan, you have the analog pirate TV opportunity of the century at hand! So many analog sets and no analog broadcasters. Take advantage, mebbe check out Stephen Dunifer’s work:

  10. […] And in the “Who didn’t see this one a mile away” department, some Dallas parents are shocked – shocked! – that the new Wii browser allows dirty, dirty porn pixels to invade the family television set. (Come to think of it, that might have spiced up our recent contest a bit.) Nintendo, who have cultivated an image of providing innocent fun, might have tried being a little more forward in promoting the Wii’s parental controls. […]
