I have no netceiver to play with and didn't look at the sources. But 
it's nice to see a real world use for IPv6 in consumer hardware (if you 
can call the reel boxes consumer hardware, it's probably only for a 
limited, but sophisticated market.
Does it just use a fixed multicast-address to receive the stream and if 
yes, how is the communication to the tuner realized? Is this something 
reel-specific or could this be used to start a unified streaming-concept 
for vdr based on standards (and using IPv6 to avoid all that ugly IPv4 
stuff...)

A very interested Matthias
