In theory, shouldn't Myth be able to record the encrypted program?  Not
that it would do us any good.  Or at least detect that there's a stream,
but it's encrypted, so as to give a more friendly failure message?

Too bad the 5C specs aren't public.  Perhaps the cable box doesn't even
acknowledge that there's a stream until it's been authenticated.  Anyone
