There aren't many countries with a DMCA law, so to say it will be
illegal in MOST jurisdictions may be a stretch... And those few
countries that actually have something similar do mostly include fair
use/private use exceptions...

Having said all that, I'd still like to be able to use my Dreambox
(*with* valid card from the Sat Provider!!!) as a network tuner to
myth...  =)
(I have started looking at the network tuner sources in the past, but I
just don't have the time *or* the patience anymore to do coding like that...
