It is not the job of the splitter to handle such things. If you are using software like DVBViewer which handles things transparent, you can store an internet stream as a normal DVB channel so you can also record it on your local disk.
Turn on mobile data/tethering -> download -> turn off mobile data/tethering. Ten years ago, it would have been spin up the disk, read it all, spin down.

Only the most naive filters would ever have fully buffered before releasing the buffer. Start the download, start playing when requested, these operations aren't connected. Isn't this how many streams work today? What's important is that it keeps downloading constantly until finished, not

  1. My PC doesn't use mobile data or tethering and I did not install LAV on my mobile phone
  2. You didn't follow the discussion. The person who requested this wrote that he would like to have a feature which FULLY downloads FILES before the software should start playing back.

Copy to local harddrive or a dynamic ramdrive (using ImDisk).

Sorry, then maybe his wording (a disc buffer that can hold a full copy of a file) was misunderstanding. Buffering is of course always good for streaming. In memory buffering is better than disc buffering. And buffering never helps out of the conflict that you have on slow/bad internet connections when the consumer (player) needs the data faster than the producer can deliver it.
