Well said, Bill.

There is a company who makes software solutions for this problem. Try:
- I think it's not free though.

Anyway, I was brainstorming about the processor need to decode a scrambled movie. First of all, all the analog data is encoded anyway to travel via cable or air. The carrier doesn't really matter. The quantity of the data received will be the same as the data decoded. (Usually there's no compression applied to analog signals)

Scrambling a picture often is much simplier and also much faster than any video encoding algorythm. Back in the good old days it was only about shifting the voice and/or the picture data over the carrier signal, it's a bit complicated now i believe. I know of some that invert picture and scramble data based on previous data. This is still not so resource needy, but I'm not so experienced in today's techniques.
I'm saying that if your box can decode Div-X in full screen, then you will have no problems, but even a slower one will do for sure.

Jeff, why not keep quiet instead of talking about something you have no idea of.
