I have a couple remote frontends set up, with nothing NFS mounted at
all, and the backend streams live TV to them without any hassles or
needing to do anything special, although it doesn't work so well for
my laptop (the wireless doesn't have enough bandwidth to keep up).

Have you tried it?  If it doesn't work, what does it do instead?

The freedoms that we enjoy presently are the most important victories of the
White Hats over the past several millennia, and it is vitally important that
we don't give them up now, only because we are frightened.
