So this might operate something like an HDHomerun, in the sense of 
providing a video stream over ethernet, correct? How about the channel 
changing aspect if the stream is being generated by, say, an STB or DTA? 
Would that require lirc or some such? I've not fiddled much with ip tv in 
MythTV: does it provide any facility for recording? Thanks.
