One option is the vomp plugin which has a client built to run under 
windows.

See: http://www.loggytronic.com/vomp.php

I've only had a quick play with the windows client but it worked 
reasonably well. I _think_ it will do both live TV and recordings but, as 
I say, it was a while back that I tried the windows client (I regularly 
use the MediaMVP client, though, and it works really well).

Other options might be streamdev and vlc?

Cheers,

Laz
