Stripping HDCP for digital recording is in violation of DMCA, is of 
questionable legality, and should not be discussed in here.

Aside from that, MythTV has recommended hardware encoders and digital 
tuners for the past several years for good reason.  Real time encoding 
is hard.  Capture and proper sync of audio is hard.  Hardware encoders 
sidestep this issue and do it all for us.  Considering this device uses 
its own API, and is not automatically supported by including the V4L 
API, it is not likely anyone is going to go out of their way to write 
support for a framegrabber.
