I'm in NYC and my only option for cable is Time Warner; everything has
been fine and I've been pulling HD content over firewire but just this
past week it looks like Time Warner has added encryption to almost
every HD channel I want.  HBO, Showtime etc... Are all now encrypted.

Do I have any options of am I forced to rent a DVR through Time
Warner?  I would really miss my mythtv box but it's not much use if I
can't get of the HD channels I want.  5C encryption should be illegal.
