rtp:// ##BBC1 rtp:// ##BBC2
rtp:// ##BBC3 rtp:// ##BBC4

The TV Tuner is on box A, I wish to
watch on box B,C & D, possibly multiple channels, this also allows me to
record the streams when something interesting is on. what I'm really
looking for at this stage is to have it Unicast instead of Multicast....
