What problems are you having? I am able to "watch" the channel
although the video stutters  a lot, it will play a few seconds then
pause for a few seconds then resume playback.

I recorded a programme and then used mencoder to transcode it to xvid,
that worked fine.

I will try the patches suggested in this thread, if they work I will
try to add a proper transcoder profile for h264.. i dont think it
would be that hard to get it done.
