We are trying to do all this stuff inside MythTV's code (backend) so
any frontend can request to receive live-tv data in codec supported by
ffmeg (it includes resolution, etc..)..
It's an interesting feature and there are a lot of people interested
in that. If you want to help with ideas or code please, contact me or
