Well, I don't use the PVR at all, but I'd guess that from some other machine
you'd point its browser at


where nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the local LAN IP address of the machine running the
G_iP server code.  Things that might be a problem (I'm just guessing):

- firewall settings on one or both computers

- I don't know whether the server side of the PVR way of using G_iP runs all
the time, or only when a particular user is logged on to that machine. 

I think you'd need to try it and tell us what happens.  Also, I think you'll
need (if asking for more advice) to say which OSes are in use, and what
firewall apps you're using on each machine.  

Do you know your way around the firewalls - how to set rules, and how to
find & understand whatever logs they create?

Jeremy Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
