Hi guys,

I am involved in a networked ATSC tuner (dual tuners, 100baseTX network).

The video stream is UDP based and it has a TCP control channel. Two 
machines can independently control the two tuners if desired.

I have just recently started playing with MythTV and I would like to add 
MythTV support.

One approach could be to use a user-space app to receive the TS and 
create a loopback driver so it looks like a normal video capture device.

Another approach would be to add support directly to MythTV. This would 
avoid looping through the kernel and would be easier for end-users.

Any thoughts?

I am quite happy writing the code for it, or would be able to arrange 
samples if anyone was interested in helping out.
