Maybe the best solution is to use a hardware STB for IPTV? It takes all
soft and stream from ethernet, it allows to control via web based portal.
Video stream for this devices is near the same as SAT stream - it needs
PAT for one program only, PAT rewriting is easy.

Typical STB costs are like FF card - 100-200e, got DHMI, hardware HDTV 
etc. And it eats about 20-40W.

I'm not sure about OSD...

What do you think about this solution?
