Howto transcode & relay a MPEG stream to a WMV stream??

Hello all!

Setup: I have a satellite dish on the roof of my house and I'm able to capture the raw MPEG stream coming from the dish/receiver. The MPEG stream plays (with VLC) just fine on my Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn, AMD 64) Desktop. (Dell 390 Intel Core 2 6600 @ 2.4 Ghz - 2 GB RAM). The original stream (MPEG) has sound, and the Dell box plays the sound when I play the original stream in VLC. No problem.

I'm able to transcode and relay the MPEG stream to a 'client' box (Windows XP or MacOSX) using:

(all on one line)
This produces a stream that I can play with VLC on the client box. But the stream does not contain any sound! It is not embedded in the stream.

Two questions:
How can I produce a stream WITH sound.
What should I change in my configuration in order to play this stream with Windows Media Player (Windows XP)? Or with QuickTime (on a Mac)?

Requirement: Fully Windows Media Player compatible, without the need of installing extra codec...

Any help is very much appreciated.
