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.
I would think it would be more like an HDPVR in the sense you have to tune your stb or dta and then record a stream.
I have never used the external ’tuning’ part of mythtv, however I believe there are shell scripts to do that on mythtv.org.
