Because of the broadcast flag.  This card does not recognize the flag,
so it can capture broadcasts and end users can do whatever they want
with it.  After June '05, all devices (TV's, receivers, tuners) that
get HD signals will have to recognize the flag, essentially DRM for
OTA broadcasts.  Check out eff.org for more info.
