MPlayer (mplayer and mencoder) has an -endpos argument, which will tell it long it should read/encode from a file or stream. It takes a value in hours:minutes:seconds (and optionally milliseconds).
I've never actually tried this while dumping a network stream to disk (to my recollection), but it definitely works fine for timed duration recording off a TV capture card, and playback/transcoding from a file. If you already have MPlayer installed it may be worth experimenting with that.
