Nah, I don't think this is the way to go. Many satellite STB already
have a harddisk or empty slot for a harddisk. Recording from RGB signal
would imply decoding, conversion to analogue, conversion to digital and
then another encoding step. So I don't think it's interesting.

FWIW I have two sat boxes that run linux and have their root mounted
from a server. So they do not have a harddisk, yet they record to
harddisk. IMHO this is the optimal solution, although I could imagine it
might be a little too complex for most customers.
