I looked at those a while back, I even spoke with one of their devs and he informed me that you needed a closed source player to be able to watch the streaming content... so probably not much you can do to integrate it with LMCE unfortunately, other than just controlling the unit.

A recent topic in their forum says  they are improving the remote (rtsp) rate of streaming in a 4000 kb/s, soon we would be able to receive easly the rtsp:// stream, which actually is limited to 1200 kb/s.

Moreover the Hava firmware is Open under GPL i think.

That would be great news, but like I said... when I asked the dev directly he said the stream was encrypted and could only be viewed with their client software. Maybe it has changed as that was a few months ago.

Merkur2k: thats what I was thinking when I first saw the device.. mpeg-2 multicast over the network, would be an awesome addition. Especially since it has component inputs and only costs $145. Its unfortunate that it doesn't just output an unencrypted stream

In fact, would be awsome to have the stream ready to use.
Hava has 2 mode of streaming.
 
1) Encripted mpeg2 - LOCAL MODE
2) rtsp with a max of 1,2 Mb/s but thy are REALLY  working to reach the 4 mb/s quality. - REMOTE MODE

So the first step is to receive the remote stream, and working later on the local one.
