Have you tried with an HDVTS generated stream? we put the HDVTS on an 
Internet2 host and the VLC received on our LAN here in Europe, and putting 
in that nonsense was the only way to make it work.

  Are you sure you're putting a local address? Most

I know... if it is a unicast stream, you should not specify any address at 
all, just the port, as the sender is directing the stream just to your IP 
address (and you can see this clearly with a simple taskmgr on XP, where 
you detect the 28Mbps input traffic)...

are you using VLC 1.0.4? I've not tried it yet.
