So, would this be the answer to my original thread question?

---Other than free, over the air HD broadcasts, we mythtv users are
basically SOL when it comes to cable/sat HD viewing, unless by chance we get
lucky and some piece of hardware comes out that allows us to copy the HD
streams unencrypted---

I know it's a grim outlook, but is that the utter truth for us mythtv
fans/users? Other than a few channels, are we stuck with SD programming and
Standard Def RCA/Svideo from the cable box?
