FYI (just so that we don't duplicate work):

I briefly looked into Myth and was surprised to see that tuning and 
grabbing of data seems to be totally independant. That kind of excludes 
the approach I wanted to take (just call dvbstream and let it tune and 

So, I looked into dvbstream and cutted the source down to what looks
