Mac version is currently for cases just like this. It doesn't support
DVB devices (at least yet). So just like Torgeir told, you need to
install streamdev for both ends. The problem with Intel machines is
that the video screen is green-purple. I've not found out what the
problem is. If you are using Intel Mac you need also small change to
video-quartz.h to get it compile. See the softdevice patch in the page
below. PPC should work straight out ot CVS.
