[in Australia].

Of course VCRs and FoxTel's own iQ PVR also breach copyright in the same
way. There's never been any enforcement against users of any of those
devices (to my knowledge) and the devices themselves are legally sold
despite infringement being their principle purpose and use. MythTV certainly
isn't doing anything unusual in providing recording capabilities even if it
might be (strictly speaking) illegal to use those capabilities in Australia.
A download plugin would be going far beyond that though.
