Nope. The hacked DirecTv HD receiver (http://www.169time.com) is NOT
supported by Myth. It does not use a standard protocol but would
require a Myth dev to customize the "recording" process to talk to it.
No such customization has been done to date, to my knowledge.

Nope. Broadcast content ("OTA" -- over the AIR) is NOT encrypted.
There are provisions to encrypt broadcast over CABLE. The Broadcast
Flag is a bit that, when set, is supposed to tell downstream devices to
not allow the content to be saved in the open.
My personal opinion: Use Myth to snag recordings over the air. If
satellite/cable people don't want us to have their signals, oblige them
by not signing up. Frankly, TV is a giant wasteland anyway and we'd
all be better off if we turned it off and read a book.
