He is talking about dvb-s cards and sasc, and a patch to myth that allows for their use together.  You would have to have one hell of a user unfriendly accident to break the law there. It involves downloading source, patching, then compiling it, and a hefty configuration and setup.  Put it this way, you would know it if ya do it, as there is only one goal on that path.

I (obviously) am also in the same hobby as him, Hell, we might even know of each other under different user names.... Small world!! LOL.   I have strongly considered the solution that he hints at, but I have a solution I prefer more, plastic is much less downtime.

Anyone interested in dvb-s piracy should hit up --- Sat piracy in general -

I am mainly looking at a way to limit the amout of equipment that I have to have. sort of a all in one option.

that wireless network card is a bitch to get going. if you go to the Ubuntu forums they have a fix which I assume will work for linuxmce.

Users / dvd's on hard drive

I have been using any dvd to copy my movies to my hard drive. it is not in iso format just the video_ts folder. do I need to convert it back to .iso or can I just leave it as is?

Users / new set up questions

come this sumer I would like to set up a media box. I am focusing right now on media stuff.

I plan on having a computer that all it is there for is to store images of my dvd's. now I plan on getting a blu-ray or hd-dvd player when I get my hdtv (around the same time).
my question is I can get slysoft anydvd hd as I like there product, Buddy of mine has a blu-ray burner/reader but so far have yet to find a hd-dvd, is there one? can I even play it with the new linux mce coming out?

now this hdcp I have been reading about, how if thing don't match it is basically dvd quality any way around this?
video card: ati or nvidia? memory size? I want 1080p can dvi candle it? I know about the hdmi-dvi cables.

1080p capture card?

one last thing I have bell expressvu can I get the guide some how that myth tv can control my receiver to record the show?

I had that problem when I used my sata ports on my motherboard. the drive was a 500gig one so that may be the problem. or since the sata ports were one of the first to come out so maby that is also the problem.

I did how ever use my 160gig ide and it seems to be working now but will find out tomorrow.

Users / how fast is the tv capture?

I am using an old pc at the moment just to play around.

now my old pc tends to lag a bit when it comes to things like an xbox/ps2 ect using my capture card(it to is an old version from 3-4 years ago).
if I get a new pc and a good tv capture card will I still have that problem?

as well this is a basic yes/no question hdmi some motherboards I see have it already but as long as it is nividia based will hdmi work?
