Actually here's an exciting update!

I AM able to receive the video stream from myth. It seems that the 
connection is just spotty and unreliable, as others have described. 
However, this is interesting: I am also able to receive unencrypted 
premium channels. Right now I have a sample from Lord of the Rings from 
TNTHD. The format is weird, but it's MPEG. Mplayer complains about too 
many packets, and also I can't yet get it to work under Myth...any thoughts?
