 In general, I think this is useful functionality to have but the approach
 and patch need a lot of work:-

 - the patch is incomplete (it has a hard coded tuner number) and makes no
 attempt to find the correct tuner for the channel.
 - it needs updating for trunk (trivial enough)
 - the actual streaming does not work. Streaming to mplayer does get a
 picture at least, but playback is pretty broken. Streaming to vlc and
 mythavtest does not work.
 - there is no handling of scheduling conflicts for the livetv channel
 (e.g. what happens when the backend wants to claim the tuner for a
 recording - probably other related issues as well).
 - I've not tested but presumably streaming ends at the end of the current

 If someone wants to update for trunk and start addressing some of these
 issues, then please re-open with a revised patch.
