Please read the link.

"Discussion of any topics that may be considered illegal or
questionably legal in any of the areas that MythTV developers and/or
users reside (especially the United States as the mailing lists are
hosted in the United States) is prohibited.

    Do not even mention these things in passing within another discussion.
    This is non-negotiable.
    Making it "hypothetical" does not make it OK.
    These rules are meant to protect the MythTV developers and the
project itself. Even if you feel that your actions are not in
violation of any laws, terms of service, contracts, or rules of
ethics, please consider how an outsider who has not followed the
thread and/or sees only parts of your post out of context and/or who
may live in an area whose laws differ from yours may interpret your
statements. In the past, the MythTV project has already been painted
as just another tool used by file sharers and copyright violators in a
New York Times article entitled, "Steal This Show". "

Important thing to note is that it *doesn't matter* if it's legal
where you are, it's that it's illegal where the MythTV devs, who
absorb liability for the actions of this project, reside.

You don't have to like it, but the least you can do when you are
getting the software for free and not paying project legal bills is
respect the rules.
