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.
