So are we saying that satellite reception hardware can't be detected remotely? Presumably, some form of handshake takes place along the way so that duplicate data isn't downloaded from the transmission stream to the local cache. I grant you that I'm only speculating, but if a signal is broadcast on a particular frequency then how do you stop that particular frequency from being hijacked? Or there is nobody capable of spoofing a satellite transmission signal to bork your bit of hardware? Even if it's as simple as pretending to tell you to download an OTA firmware update?
