I think what you describe might be possible. The way I would do it is to
have a second backend (maybe running on a virtual machine on the original
backend). It wouldn't be configured as a slave backend. You would have to
use nuvexport to transfer the recordings to the second backend then
transcode the recordings down to a resolution the xbox can handle. The xbox
would only interface with the virtual machine backend.
