So to sum up, the upstream problem you're talking about is already here, it's just that instead of using your own PVR box and then sharing that, someone did this somewhere in the world, encoded it into Xvid and then it is shared between end users (illegally). I believe the problem is the same.
Understood - part of what I'm trying to ask (not very well, apparently, heh) is whether presumably non-infringing mechanisms/ services such as the Slingbox are viewed and/or would be treated any differently than P2P filesharing apps.
