The hacking comment was about emails I see on this group about satellite
receivers with firewire "fixed" to allow HD output. Also some people trying
to use their TIVO to "assist" myth with getting HD content, etc...

This statement should be "Imagine a TIVO on Steroids" not imaging...
Again, the hacking comment is related to having to have memberships for
TIVO, cable/satellite DVR and trying to break them open to get myth to
talk, rather than come out of the legal tv ouput cables but instead of
connecting directly to a TV, we connect to one of these super HD cards.
PS: I get absolutely NO OTA channels... Not even rabbit ears oldschool
channels. therefore, I am currently on SD cable, but watching as things
progress for when I get ready for HD, I dont want to be buying a ton of
stuff to find out "you cant get there from here" when TIVO, and other DVR's
