esound has the ability to play over a network. I don't have any
experience with the sort of thing that you're doing so I guess all I
can do is point my finger in the general direction...
Another option might be to see if you can get a hold of some software
on the desktop that can stream to an MPG file from the TV input. If
so, you could point that out a socket and use something like xmms to
receive it on the laptop.
