as I wrote to Richard in a different list, dvbstream, with its very flexible
mechanism to filter and repeat pids on different outputs, is a good tool;
if  the bandwidth is so high is because Richard is streaming the whole TS,
not only the part of it he's interested in.
Just selecting the right pids will probably solve his problems.

Mencoder from cvs can remux TS to PS on the fly, with different profiles,
although my PS muxer is still very far from perfect (writing an mpeg muxer
is a dismaying task).
