[mythtv-users] fiberoptic IPTV recording on mythtv

I asked the provider if channels were encrypted. They said only premiums
like HBO, showtime, & skinamax would be. I have only experimented with a
couple of channels on mythtv. I haven't yet built a complete list of the
multicast addresses for all the channels. But I think I will be able to
directly record everything except the premium channels.
Of course your millage may vary. A different provider could encrypt
everything to force you into renting their STB. Like most cable providers
encrypt 99% of digital cable channels so that you can't use your own QAM
tuner to watch. Though I was able to get unencrypted pay-per-view
advertisements on mine.
