As you say a network stream has no end, like a DVD has no end. If there
is no more data from the network, the network input module can display
a message like "no data from network" and just wait until there is
some. If the user wants to skip the stream he uses the playlist next
and he's done with it. When there will be full DVD support, once the
movie is finished you'll have to go back to the menu which is basically
the same thing (except in this case you really have sensible data).
