I saw the thread to which you refer, but the link has been blocked out (presumably for legal reasons). Do you know of any English reources (auto-translation is always entertainlg, but frustrating!!)?
Also, as a UK user, I'm interested in Sky TV and the appropriate hardware. From my limited research, I have discovered there are many types of card and I don't want to buy the wrong type of reader! Has anyone actually done this in MCE? If so, is the procedure / hardware documented anywhere?
I must stress that I own and pay for a subscription to the service. AFAIK, I am not proposing anything illegal. I just want better quality / less equipment than using my STB and a capture card.
