If you guys want to discuss anything related to this, take it off-list or
risk being kicked off the list.

The MythTV developers err on the side of caution and don't want any
discussions like this on the MythTV mailing lists.  That includes things
like decrypting satellite, soft-CAM, decrypting encrypted cable, etc..
If you want to discuss things like thse, you'll have to do it somewhere else.

If you search the archives, you will find other places where we have held
this same position.
