I'm also using it on 100Mbps LAN.
I use rtp because theoricaly it looks like the best way to have
several frontends watching the same channel (even if ideally i'd like
to be able to watch different ones).

atm i have encountered with rtp:
 - freeze, have to kill -9 xine.
 - lost of sound, have to restart xine and the sound comes back.

I'll give tcp/udp a try to see if I have the same issues.
