I have never tried using it so I'm just guessing here, but maybe it
only supports MPEG-2. If you have a look at
http://mythstreamtv.sourceforge.net/ it says "MythStreamTV is a MythTV
plugin that allows live transcoding and streaming of MPEG 1/2
(PVR-x50/M-179/DVB/ATSC/HD) to Windows Media Player/Mplayer and allows
control via MythWeb".

If you have a BT878 tuner card that would be recording in MPEG-4 or
RTJPEG format - not MPEG-2. Perhaps you could try transcoding one of
your existing recordings into MPEG-2 and seeing if that works.
