Re: [PLUG] MythTV over broadband WAN?

In streaming from my MythTV box, I'm averaging about 2.8 Mbps down and 50 kbps up in steady show watching.  If you try to control the show, like skipping forward or back, it jumps up to 8 Mbps.  There are some spikes on occasion up to 11 Mbps, but they occur when it skips the commercials automatically.

Unless your home network can upload 3 Mbps consistently, it might be difficult to even try.  I know mine tops out at about 2 Mbps with Comcast.

Has anyone ever tried running MythTV over broadband (i.e. via forwarded

kind of broadband, so I was wondering if this would work.  I suspect 
not, since IIRC MythTV over 40-50M Wireless is iffy, so over 3-5-8M(?) 
broadband wouldn't work at all.  But I figured I'd ask just in case...
