Read up - cards purchased after July 1, 2005 will enforce the broadcast flag.

I recommend buying a card now and stashing it away, even if you don't plan on using it right away. This will probably never be legal again, but it is perfectly legal (and within your rights) today.

What card would you recommend?

Also -- does this act as a digital tuner in itself? If so, I'm piqued.

Why don't you just buy a couple dozen, then put them on eBay when people actually care about this? ;-)

There will always be a way to mod...or some other country that feigns ignorance on what a broadcast flag is and will sell me a...what is it again? Do I even NEED one of those?

I guess what I'm saying is if I'm picking my spots, this probably isn't one of them. That said, feel free to get me one for my birthday.
