    I have a monthly subscription to Dishnetwork satellite (echostar). As
    I understand it, it basically decrypts an (encrypted) digital signal
    and converts it into analog output to tv. Is there a way to tap that
    digital signal after decryption? It would avoid the quality-loss of
    taking the analog output and reconverting it back to digital. I live
    in the U.S. (seems like the european systems are different). Someone
    out there have probably tried opening up the settop box! I have a Dish
    301 receiver. Do not want to do something illegal.
