The universality of unencrypted DVB-T or DVB-S is underappreciated by
North American users.

No a DVB-T/DVB-C version has been released.

If you have the underlying stream, why re-encode it with an HDPVR? For
example with a DVB-S situation like I have I can record all channels
available on my satellite with two cards (as there are 2 muxes and
multirec works now). If I got set top boxes I'd need one for each
channel and an HDPVR for each channel to get the same functionality,
I'd also have to get lirc to change my channels on multiple boxes.
