I agree that the "IP frontend" driver in the kernel seems not to be so a good 
idea if you just want to play DVB streams received over the network, but 'm 
looking for the standardization that the linuxdvb api gives. A lot of tools 
works smoothly with devices interfaced via linuxdvb, so i want to reach the 
same high level of interoperability. Anyway any further  comment /suggestion 
is really welcome.
Thanx a lot
