Have a Hauppauge TV tuner in your computer? Then odds are you can stream live TV over the internet to your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad using the company’s new WinTV v7.2 software.

Hauppauge is charging $9.95 for the software, which also lets you watch and record live television on a computer. It’s not quite as attractive or easy to use as a full fledged media center application like Windows Media Center, BeyondTV, or SageTV. But it features a recording scheduler, support for multiple TV tuners, and a signal strength monitor for digital TV channels.

The latest version of WinTV introduced WinTV Extend, which lets you stream live or recorded TV shows to any device running a supported web browser. That includes the Safari web browser for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch, as well as Mac computers. You can also stream TV to a PC using any web browser that supports Adobe Flash.

You can find more details at the Hauppauge WinTV web site.
