Simon Thornton presents an interesting idea on his weblog ("a mutual misunderstanding"): connect a DV input device to your Mac and make iChat believe it's a firewire cam ..
In other, shorter, easier, words: you can use your converter box to stream live video from something - oooh, let's just say your Sky Digibox for example - to someone else using iChat anywhere else in the world. If you happened to have one of the outputs of your Sky box (it has two) connected up to the inputs of your converter box, you might see how this could work.
