That's what VDR does if the primary device (the one with the
MPEG decoder that has your tv connected to it) can't receive
a specific channel. If an other device can receive that channel
(maybe because it has a CAM and can decrypt it), VDR "transfers"
the data from that device to the primary device for live viewing.
