Looks good, though you have a number of lines, both in the man page
and in source that are over 80 columns...  also, a quick pass after
reading style(9) would be good...  (variables aren't sorted properly
in mpegtsrecv, else not on same line as brace, spaces around if missing)..
you might want to update the year of the copyright :)

Otherwise looks good... Have you looked at being able to send MPEG2-TS?
I wonder if it'd work w/ a DVHS deck, or a firewire capable HDTV tuner
like the Samsung SIR-T165...
