Use RF7.5 with ROKU?

I just got a ROKU device and am watching streaming TV over the Wi-Fi modem. That got me to wondering if there is a way to wirelessly send the RF7.5 image to my TV from my computer. I use the wireless dongle with my Tactic TTX600 Transmitter.

Yep, Run Open Broadcaster on the PC and do a Live YouTube session.
Then you can watch in in YouTube on the Roku.
There are other "better ways" but this is probably the easiest.
You'll probably need to watch some YouTube tutorials on how to work with OpenBroadcaster (OBS).
Here's one of my old archived Live sessions.
I've not got around to deleting them yet.

I would imagine there would be some latency in the above method. I use a Steam link box to stream to the TV via ethernet. There is still a little bit of latency but it's not too bad.

Yes, there would be plenty of latency.
Don't know if that's an issue "just watching" it in another room/location or not.
And he specifically asked about doing it on a Roku.

The cooler way to do it would be to configure OBS to send a multicast or unicast
UDP stream to the Roku and use an APP to watch it if that is even possible.

I'm not that familiar with Roku.

I think he wants to control it from another room using his wireless dongle streaming to the TV.

I use the wired interlink plugged in to the steam link box on the TV which passes the USB signal over ethernet to the computer. The latency over gigabit ethernet is barely noticeable but it's still there.

You're not going to do that on a Roku.
Bypass it and still use the TV.

If the TV has a VGA (15 pin analog) input use that.
And run a cable to it.
Depending on how far away it is you might be able to get away with running HDMI.
I've had 50ft. runs work.


Some kind of HDMI over GIGethernet may work too but expect a little latency.
