Hope I'm not hijacking the thread but this is a valid point to hash out 
to keep the MythTV list maintainers happy and not have them start 
deleting posts. *I* looked at this thread as finding a way to encode 
streams from the newest set of STBs that have only HDMI out and no 
longer have component out. Thus rendering the HDPVR obsolete. I always 
thought that encoding of fully paid for source is legal under fair use 
laws as long as it is for personal use only and you don't turn around 
and try to share to sell that stream. Am I wrong?
