Such a card might even allow the encrypted stream to be dumped to the
disk and replayed back through the HDMI at a later date (provided the
DRM flagged that such time shifting was permissible).
It might even be possible to support time-limited replay if the card is
willing to trust the timestamps that it receives from the incoming
aerial signal at the time of replay.
