FWIW I've seen a similar setup where TV is provided by a set-top box
that connects via the internet connection. I managed for a while to get
it to work, but the provider has since changed the setup so the set-top
box only works when plugged directly into the provider-supplied router.

What did work for a while was proxying IGMP traffic from the LAN side of
the cerowrt box. The set-top box worked by subscribing to a multicast
stream in the provider's network, and having cerowrt proxy the
subscription requests worked (for a while). Theoretically, pimd should
do this, but as I recall I had to switch to igmpproxy to get it to work.

This was not on-demand, but rather streaming IPTV, so it might be a
different setup for you. Just thought I'd mention it as a data point... :)
