There is an IPTV tuner being added to MythTV .21. It is available in MythTV
SVN right now. I fooled around with it a while ago. I could tune into a
channel on MythTV as long as it was already being sent to the set top box.
I couldn't change the channel or tune any channel directly from MythTV
though. Good luck. Keep us updated.
