 If I was going to do something like this I would throw in a cheap bttv
card dedicated to nothing but livetv via something like xawtv, and just 
never tell the backend that that card is there so it will never try to 
record from it.

 Wont let you start recording what you are watching but I don't see that as
that big a deal.
