We setup MythTV. Recorded it live and used VLC to stream it out to all our computers. Except for wireless (firewall could not handle the multicast) this worked without a hitch. This also left us with a file our AV person can convert/use for the future.
We knew our internet was going to suffer and sure enough our internet was starting to crawl by 9am.

I was out sick that day, but could track utilization from home.
One issue we ran into was installation of updated FLASH.
Not something I tend to unless it is needed.
Had a number of users who could not view a stream due to outdated flash, nor
install it on their own (permission reasons).
Anyone run into problems, anyone sail through easily?
Anyone install silverlight for the official PIC site?
