Note that MythStream != MythStreamTV.

MythStream: http://home.kabelfoon.nl/~moongies/streamtuned.html
MythSteamTV: http://mythstreamtv.sourceforge.net/ (which last had a 
release on Jan 27, 2005)

I have no idea which one Dave actually wants.  MythNetVision is more 
like MythStream (the one that's not dead) than like MythStreamTV.
