Re: SKY Recording
Do you mean Freesat rather than freeview?
My understandig was that all broadcasts have to be clear but a flag is set for some content. Any PVR etc that want to be allowed to use the Freesat EPG and carry the Freesat logo etc *have* to encrypt this content if they store it as a recording.
This is easily worked around with a firmware hack for many non sky Freesat receivers OR you can just use a generic DVB satellite receiver with built in PVR or USB connection for a HDD and away you go.
