I had thought an android based device might have been the solution, but Filmon on android is even worse than on a PC - Filmon have crippled the full-screen mode for the 'free' channels and you have to pay a monthly sub. to get full-screen.
XBian is the superior build of XBMC for the Pi, it plays just about everything very well, it struggles a little with 1080p DTS videos, but each release it gets better http://xbian.org/
The TVCatchup plugin for XBMC works great, all freeview channels stream well, and plex plugin lets you stream from your plex media server on the PC
What would be great would be if TVCatchup added a Roku channel so we didn't have to use 3rd party hardware
