Good point. The cable boxes pre-compress the signal for you when
outputting to their firewire port. I guess this is why you would need
the modified STB from 169time as well as their "AVX1 processor"? To
compress the uncompressed signal from the STB into a format that
MythTV could use? So it's like $1800 to get HD out of a satellite
