Asked and answered:


which give a list of several clients and recommends against using MythTV 
for the purpose because MythTV is a Digital Video Recorder, and his 
intent is not to record the content, anyway.

Just like I wouldn't hook up a set-top-box BluRay player to MythTV to 
play a BluRay disc, it makes no sense to hook up a set-top-box Netflix 
player to play a Netflix stream.
