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.
