In theory it should work with the iptv plugin. Alice is using usual
IP-Multicast (MPEG-TS, H264, IGMP) to transmit the cannels. For Video on
Demand they are using RTSP with MPEG-TS + H264.

But you need an VLAN enabled network or you need to have 2 network
cards, as the HomeTV is only available on a dedicated port on dsl-modem.

I have not tired it out with VDR, I could watch HomeTV with VLC.
