[mythtv-users] Fibre/Ethernet based IP based DVB - has anyone ever done this?

- Full duplex 100mbps fibreconnection to my house
(www.dongenergy.dk), a 'packetfront' converts this into two ethernet
segments, one for broadcastbased service (TV etc.), and one for normal
- IP-based TV broadcasted through IBGP [Internet Broadcast
Gateway Protocol], i think.
- Linuxbased setop-boks from www.dbnet.dk type Kreatel 1500,
I want to use MythTV for direct Ethernet based caturing, and playback -
What I know:
- Access to broadcast streams are filtered on MAC-adresses, and
perhaps on a embedded service-key.
- IP-based TV broadcasted is through IGMP [Internet Gateway
Multicast Protocol], i think.
- Streams are as far as I know NOT encrypted.
- Streams are some sort of MPEG2 with bitrates from 4-8 Mbps.
What I have done so far:
- Tried to install FC5 + MythTV_0.20, but failed since I did not
have any capture cards.
So what I want to ask:
* Has anyone on the list ever tried a setup like this?
* If yes, any guides for installing Myth for an
application without a defined capture-card (ie. Ethernet interface)?
* If yes, what capture/TV interface is selected in the
* Is it at all possible to do this?
* First setup, would be leeching a single stream through
an ethernet-hub to the Mythboks.
* Then getting/reversing the protocol used to get the
channels broadcasted (IGMP + ??)
* Getting the Myth-boks MAC allowed.
Is this even the right list to ask this?
Hoping someone to shed some light on the questions above,
