Uhm, ok, that works as well, but at around 50Mb/s I'm going to run out 
of bandwidth on the 100Mb/s network pretty quickly:(

Does that mean that each backend always works on the full TS, so a 
frontend would need to do the demux?

If the frontend needs to demux then is ProjectX or some other demuxer 
built in?

Well, it would be around 150-200 Mb/s, so I guess I'm going to put in a 
Gigabit link between the fileserver and the backend box.

Well, it's the lesser of n evils at least:)
