You are right on about that upload speed. Speedtest.net on my iPad show an upload speed of 5.24 mbps. I too struggled with the 700+ or minus until I got the new modem. I did not change the contract with Comcast, only purchased a new up-to-date modem. Of course your download and upload speeds will vary thoughout the day. However, at 5.24 mbps, there is room for slight variances during the day, while still providing an excellent image.
I use EyeTV to get tv onto my Mac. The EyeTV app allows me to remotely operate the EyeTV to watch live shows on my iPad, and watch any shows that I have recorded in iPad format.

There are similar devices for Win, just not as elegant or easy to use.

I have a HDhomerun network tuner that grabs the live digital TV signal coming in and makes it available on the network for devices to access. PCs are a snap using the supplied software, but I have also got a solution for iOS devices as the manufacturer has not iOS support to date.
I use TVStreamer which picks up the HDhomerun tuner on the network and allows me to select the channel I want to view, once selected, it opens in Goodplayer where it streams the live TV. When I want to change channels, I click Done and it returns to TVStreamer so i can select the next channel.
This is a solution that bypasses the need for a Mac or PC to be acting as a server on my network.
