I have been playing a lot to get streaming from DB to PC and Mac and here is status:

Works fine using Mozilla and VideoLan (VLC) to a Sony Viao laptop (fx705). Remarkably easy to set up.

Have tried both DreamStreamX and DreamXman which are supposed to stream (also using Videolan (VLC)) but I can do nothing to produce a visible stream on my G4 titanium. Author of DreamXman tells me that others have had problems and it may be down to VLC thrashing the processor. This is not easy to accept. I have 100Mbps bandwidth to DB and VLC will play .ts and .mpg files. He suggests trying DreamStreamX but both just show a black screen and VLC quits after about 8 sec.
