I can't imagine anyone would want to; 11b just doesn't have the bandwidth 
to stream MPEG2 over, unless you've got near-perfect conditions - this is 
why 11g has proved so popular. Don't use 11b unless the only thing your 
Mythbox needs is access to the internet - LAN access will be insufferably slow.
