Need an MPEG 2 streaming solution for Windows Surface RT


I own and regularly use a SiliconDust HD HomeRun Prime network tuner on my home network.

Since the device is DLNA certified, all I need to do to watch TV on my Windows 8.1 Pro PC is to click on a link for the channel stream (MPEG 2) that I want watch. This works flawlessly on my 64 bit Windows 8.1 Pro desktop which opens the Windows 8.1 "tile" video app.

When I try the same thing on my Surface RT with Windows RT 8.1, after the same "tile" video application opens, I get the following message:

"Can't play. That item was encoded in a format that's not supported by your version of Windows."

Has anyone figured out a way to add an MPEG 2 CODEC to Windows RT?

Thanks in advance,
