    Now I know in the past one could not stick a Sky+ (FAT32 a-like) hard disc in PC and play the files because they are encrypted; similarly to not being able to play back encrypted channels without a subscription.

    Anyone knows what happens with free-to-air unecrypted BBC channels?

    Just a thought, asking out of interest and a lunchtime discussion over a sandwich.

    No, the BBc is in the clear as are several others.

    AFAIK, the Sky+ HD is not in a PC readable format, and I wouldn't be suprised if thay added a light scrambling on top of the transmitted encoding, just for fun.

    However if you try, do report back!
