Not sure if you can with TVTime but you can with VLC (VideoLan), I 
managed to get it working to a point with a Freeview card and it worked 
fairly well.  How is the other PC connected?

If it's on the same network then another option would be to use 
something like mplayer to capture the stream to a file and then share 
the location of the file using Samba and then open the file on the other 
PC while it's streaming.  Bit of a messy way of doing it but it also works.
