I wouldn't recommend it. I had two different versions of Knoppmyth CDs
around the house, and used one on the FE/BE and accidently used
another on a remote FE. The remote FE could see the recordings, but
not play the them. Live TV was a no go.

Then again, if you can write your own drivers, you might possess the
skill to make it work.
