JimmyH:bagheera: the dtt stream is not encrypted, but the is a flag in the mheg stream that say do not let HD copy with out encrypt. to get freeviewnz approve, then you got to listen to this flag, all the big name pvr are fteeviewnz approved so do this, but there are some pvr that are not freeviewnz approved that will let you copy HD off / play back over the network
Can you advise which ones. I'm really grumpy to read this thread, having recently brought a Panny XW390 - principally because I had just finished a network rebuild incorporating media players that I want to stream recordings to. If it really is the case that Panasonic has a gimped DLNA feature set, I may try and take it back for a refund.
I second the poster who observed that it's no wonder people just resort to piracy.
can not remember now - was 1 or 2 years ago when i was looking into this and we went with a mythtv with a tv card in the end (which let you copy off / stream to any pc - there is even an Android frontend now - not tested that tho), but if i remember right i was talking to this owner of this site about option http://www.freeviewshop.co.nz/
