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  
box. Yikes.
