Question
ARe you asking if there is a way to connect a DTV antenna-tuner to display content on an Android?

The offering you show is an app which will use one of these 2 receivers
  • Audiovox MobileTV Receiver
  • Elgato EyeTV Mobile TV Tuner
to flow some content to the smart device.

But, if I understand the implementation, those are using a specifically tuned antenna to allow display of whatever the broadcasting location is licensed for. This is why you will only see a few of the local programming (TV stations) that the receivers get. The technology is seen in the 1st paragraph, here.

I did see another broadcast option about another US venture to broadcast to mobiles. In fact, as I remember, recently some broadcast content providers had tried to use the court system to shut them down.
Edited: added the Company which is sued for making broadcast content available

Which technology approach are you after?

The second option is more interesting to me, essentially, streaming broadcast TV on computers, tablets and smartphones. I can see how this technology would irk broadcasters and traditional television vendors.

Update on android devices/touchscreens, etc.

I'm doing programming with no problems right on an Samsung Galaxy Note 8 loaded with Eclipse. I have a case with a bluetooth keyboard that works as well as my laptop keyboard. Re: handwriting, the SPen works as well as pen and paper. Printing: I'm using a Samsung Laser printer that connects with wifi-direct. It doesn't require any wifi connection, and prints everything..handwritten notes, office docs, web pages, etc. Applications: rapid evolution of professional applications. There's an excellent ongoing android programming course for $2 a month that comes with eclipse software. There's a lynx text browser developed for Android with active development with SSL (for gmail), switches for javascript, etc. Formats everything correctly...very fast, no ads, etc.
Impressive <bye>

Android-x86 4.4-r1 (KitKat-x86) 8/08/2014
http://www.android-x86.org/releases/releasenote-4-4-r1
Quote:
The Android-x86.org is glad to announce the 4.4-r1 release to public. This is the first stable release Android-x86 4.4 (kitkat-x86). The 4.4-r1 release is based on the Android 4.4.2 (KitKat-MR1 release). We have fixed and added x86 specified code to let the system runs smoothly on x86 platforms, especially for tablets and netbooks. A live CD ISO [343 MB] is available for download.


I find the versioning system to be confusing. In a recent post, the Android-x86 team announced release of Android-x86 4.4-RC2 (KitKat-x86) 5/20/2014, and now this announcement for Android-x86 4.4-rc1 (KitKat-x86) 8/08/2014. Notice the capitalization of RC in the previous release annoucement.

RC (uppercase) probably means Release Candidate -- like a public beta.

r probably means release -- out of beta.

I don't see an rc (lowercase) in that quote.

Acknowledged, no "rc" in latest announcement. I would say the previous announcement was for a Release Candidate, and the latest is for a public release.

I have an ASUS eeePC 4G, 900 MHz Celeron, 4GB SSD. 512MB DDR2. It is currently running Android-x86_4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Despite best efforts, both Chrome and Firefox for Android are spontaneously closing, and thus inoperable. What is the most recent version of Android-x86 that will work well on my eeePC? A primary consideration is the kernel version. I assume that the latest version of Android with kernel 3.0.x might lack retro drivers and be a poor choice of version. But I guess I'll give it a try anyway. The reason I chose to install an older version like Ice Cream Sandwich was that this was the last version of Android-x86 known to have su privileges.

The following OS installation attempts failed: Android-x86_4.4_r3, Android-x86_4.2, Android-x86_4.3, Wary 5.5, Slacko 5.5

And the winners are: Android-x86_4.0, Wary 5.1.1

I'm betting that some of the above failures are because of the placement of GRUB. While Android-x86_4.4_r3 did install successfully, I never saw the GRUB boot screen. Just got a white screen, some text, and then halted at command prompt. Any opinions or suggestions?

PostPosted: Sun 13 Sep 2015, 16:16    Post subject: Problems booting the OS after GRUB instal  

At the end of the installation of Android-x86_4.4, I was asked by the installer, Do I want it to install GRUB now. I clicked Yes. But the OS did not boot after restarting, despite its report that Android successfully installed, which is disappointing because this project was specifically intended for the eeePC. (It is noteworthy to mention that neither 4.4 nor 4.2 would run as live CD, but instead halt on inability to find files. BUT, Android did successfully install--just wouldn't boot.) Is there another way to install GRUB after Android-x86 finishes installing? Can I install GRUB from a Puppy live CD to accomplish this purpose?

I'm making some progress, if only to eliminate possibilities. After much thrashing about, here is GRUB Menu.lst
Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
  title Android-x86 4.4 r3 KitKat (on /dev/sda1)
  root (hd0,0)
  kernel /android-4.4-r3/kernel quiet root=/dev/ram0
  androidboot.hardware=android_x86 SRC=/android-4.4-r3
  initrd /android-4.4-r3/initrd.img
# Linux bootable partition config ends

and here is the failed start of Android-x86_4.4_r3
Code:
Starting up...
early console in decompress_kernel

Decompressing Linux... Parsing ELF... No relocation needed... done
Booting the kernel.
Detecting Android_x86...............................................................................................................         
......................................................................................................................
.......................................................................................................................

Next step, I'll try to install Android-x86 4.2 Jelly Bean. Probably get the same result.

EDIT: What is this doing?
Code:
quiet root=/dev/ram0

'quiet' suppresses loads of messages while booting which may give you clues to what is happening. 'root=??' tells it where to look for the root filesystem -which may be an initrd or image which does needed stuff before mounting the 'real' root filesystem.

Announcement: Android-86 Project has partnered with Remix OS

I wonder if either of these projects have implemented hardwire or USB dongle ethernet connectivity.

Flipping through "Groups" postings appears to be a "hit or miss" affair.
