The only streaming capacity the playback code has is from the backend.  
Any streaming capacity any frontend plugin may have is supplemented by 
the plugin itself, or some external program it is calling.  I have no 
idea what issue you may be tip-toeing around, but all recording capacity 
exists in the backend.  If you want to pull new content into MythTV, it 
must be done by a recorder (physical or virtual) on the backend.
