i don't believe it would be simple to use sling's api and have myth to
record a stream in the absence of getting something to override the
hdcp and just record from the android box. i believe that these
services use some form of a token that must be changed all the time to
pass the stream and also a degree of redirection. i don't think a myth
tuner as it stands could record from sling in the absence of a hdmi
recording device and something to strip hdcp which is not authorized
