Home routing question

Ok, so this isn't a web hosting question but it's routing and I don't know a better place to ask.

My home network is in the range 192.168.1.x

I have a Roku box, basically it provides SD and HD video streams from the US and pops them out onto my TV via HDMI. It's a box of loveliness.

In order to access US streams, I added a second router (flashed dd-wrt) to my network in the range 192.168.2.x with its WAN port connected to my main network. Then I PPTP from Router 2 to a US IP through Router 1. Works a treat.

One of the services in Roku is a Plex client, which can talk to my Plex server on a machine in my main network. Plex is a media streamer (and a wonderful one at that).


How can I configure Router 2 to route internal Roku traffic to my main network (192.168.1.x) but route external traffic via the PPTP over internet ?

I'm not expecting to find an answer, maybe tips on where to start looking ?
