Dan was after "stream while you record for wireless transmission", and did
state that he was already sharing the recordings folder., which I assume is
either in-progress or completed recordings. Mediaserv will let you stream a
in-progress recording. I forgot to also say that I use mythtvplayer on a
Windows laptop connected via wireless and that works fine on recordings, and
native live tv.

I suppose the real question is what does Dan want to use as a client device.
