[mythtv-users] DISH Network HD capture?

Earlier messages on this mailing list indicate that there is not 
currently a way to capture HDTV content from the output of a DISH 
Network receiver (ViP211) with MythTV.  Is that correct?  The pcHDTV 
cards, for example, want an ATSC (RF unencrypted HDTV) signal.  I don't 
understand why this limitation exists, since the ViP211 has a HDMI 
audio/video output that connects directly to my HDTV.  This is an 
unencrypted, high-definition digital audio and visual signal, is it not? 
  Are there any HD capture cards that take this as an input?
