broadcom? yea right, someone will likely have to be willing to buy 
50,000 before they will even start producing them and then you'll need 
to be willing to buy 10-20,000 unless someone like digi-key decides to 
stock it. They made a cool tuner chip that handled most if not all 
current sat formats, but it never went to production because no one 
would commit to a insane quanity.
