Really? I've got cat 6 cabling in the wall and plans to upgrade my 
100mbit switch to gigabit one, I would have thought that this was more 
than enough network bandwidth to stream two TS's.

Just benchmarked disk to disk on my 100meg network, I can get 
approximately 4 megs a second (thats megabytes per second) transferring 
real data between two machines on my network (one being the media box 
that will be broadcasting the TS stream).

Given that I think that gigabit ought to provide plenty of headroom to 
stream 2 TS's especially when I don't have to get slow hard disks in the 
way.
