I simply installed VLC from their website download. (In XP and Win-7, I won't fight with Win-8... I'm going to Ubuntu). I use the Software Center in Ubuntu to install VLC.

I have never found an interface method in the VLC GUI that will control my SiliconDust HDHR tuners. Instead, I use a utility provided by SiliconDust to set the tuner and launch VLC when streaming video to it. I've also dabbled with batch and script files to launch both the tuner and VLC... that's a work in progress, when I get back to it.

TSReader does know how to command the SiliconDust HDHR tuner, so I launch TSReader which in turn controls the tuner.
If the well is dry and you don't see rain on the horizon, you'll need to dig the hole deeper. (If the antenna can't get the job done, an amp won't fix it.)
