I thought you spoke about replaying. Recording must be possible (and 
some agreed to this), but playing back can´t be possible for sure unless 
you really downscale it.

Streaming boxes with certain Sigma chips etc. are great, but streamdev 
is in heavy development (at least I hope so regarding to all those 
patches to get it run) and unfortunately does not support UPnP - because 
this combined with real-time transcoding (like Nero Digital Home does 
this on Windows) would be a really great solution.
