So our Dish network is down and not sure when it will go back. We are outside US, our TV system diagram is like this --- DISH > Encoder (HDMI to IP) > Enseo System/IP network > STB > TV. SInce our source channel Dish is down, can i use roku as source channel? is there a roku channel that continuously going to play movies?
Let me make sure I understand the flow here...
Because you have DISH, that means you are paying a subscription fee. Well someone is. Whoever in the US has the DISH setup on their property.
You are then converting DISH to IP by taking the HDMI output from the DISH set top box?
Then you are puling that data down from wherever you are not in the US to another set top box?
That you then watch with your TV?
That sounds overly complicated, but sure, you can use anything you want as the source, as long as it outputs HDMI to connect to your encoder.
But if you go ROKU, why not just have it locally?
