Any idea how this is supposed to work?  The iPad only supports MJPEG, 
limited bitrate H264, and very limited bitrate MPEG4.  Anything you get 
out of an HDHomeRun Prime will be MPEG2, unsupported by the iPad, and 
wholly outside the capability of the 1GHz ARM CPU for software 
decoding.  Do you have to run EyeTV on some other system, acting as a 
transcoding proxy?
