The Samsung box isn't a DVR, it's just a cableCARD ready tuner (basically a cable box you can buy) with some stuff like Netflix streaming and other functions that may or may not appeal to you.

Yeah, if it's just for one program, I'd just contact the publisher for a pristine copy and play that. It'd be 100% legal, and would probably cost less money (and certainly less time) than trying to...

Two issues. The cable theft one has been addressed, but you should look up "passive theft."

The second one might make the first moot:

Affleck is a bit of blank slate when it comes to his roles, which in this case can be a good thing. This movie isn't going to require a super-deep Batman. Heck, I doubt the Bruce Wayne persona will...
