I've had the same 4GB problem with Myth recordings forever, keeping up to
date with PS3 FW releases.  That's just streaming from Myth's uPNP server
though.  I don't use it much, but some 1080 H.264 recordings are too much
for my regular frontend to play back before transcoding, so I occasionally
fire it up if I want to watch something right away.

I don't know how you have MediaTomb set up, but it very well might work
around the PS3's 4GB limit in some way.  I'm pretty sure it can be set up
to do transcoding on the fly for PS3, but I haven't played with it enough
to know much beyond that.
