no something like that doesnt exist. I have used a cron to fetch the m3u 
of the channels list onto harddisc and mediatomb to serve it with upnp 
to my tg100. To my knowledge they are supporting PS3 and the latest 
version is also supporting transcoding - so this seems to be a good 
start. Missing is a recording list which can be done with some sort of 
hack with the streamdev plugin as well (greating  a file with the urls 
for recordings and streamdev externremox to serve the files.

Someone would need to do some work on the meditomb side ideally to write 
a custom import script to display it properly in the structure 
-according to mediatomb docs this should be fairly
