So I saw a vid on youtube where a guy connects his iMac to a set top box via firewire downloads vlc and another program (i think AVCBrowser) and streams live tv to his iMac.. i'd like to do this very much but 2 things.

1) does anyone know if it can be done via USB? My set top box is not loaded with firewire

2) anyone have a mirror for the AVC browser that i may or may not need for this?

QUOTE Thanks

I wasn't even aware this was possible, let alone legal?
