As someone mentions later, it'd be best to pipe the stream through ssh 
compressed.  And as Milos says, I think *streaming* over a dsl line would 
be pointless.  Especially considering most US dsl customers have ADSL with 
much lower upstream bandwidth.  It might be best to just setup a 
transcoding system so recorded shows automatically get transcoded to a 
smaller xvid/divx file that you grab over scp/rsync.  I actually did this 
for daily show for nights that I couldn't watch it.  It'd reencode at 
lower resolution and upload to my other machine, constantly keeping the 
last 5 days worth.
