The thing is not yet available, so the current SVN doesn't contain most of
the new code. But in general it uses the same "reel"vdr-base as the
Avantgarde (just with a different output plugin for the SoC). The live TV
streaming is not done by the vdr on the Avantgarde, but directly via
IPv6-multicast by the NetCeiver-hardware. This is the same way the
Avantgarde gets its data, so the NetCeiver traffic is just bridged into the
LAN for other clients.
