OK, after some on- and off-list help (thanks), the penny dropped. 
Here's my collective thoughts, subject to correction.

1. need to have the PC plugged into Marconi modem.  Note that if you're
already plugged into the i3, it'll be a cross-over cable.  Going
straight into the Marconi requires a normal modem.  The Marconi's IP
address is, and hence you can't use that IP on your local

2. (my ppp0 sits over eth1 - normally yours might be eth0 - substitute
accordingly) I added the following routes
	$ sudo route add dev eth1
	$ sudo route add -net dev eth1

3. I didn't need to adjust my firewall rules, which I thought I might
have to.

4. fired up VLC:
	$ vlc udp:@

But something is wrong.  It's only showing dumb TV - The Price is
Right.  Back to the drawing board.
