TiVo 7.2 OS adds content protection, blocks transfers, and auto-deletes some shows

Recommended Posts

There's a war going on and I fear it is we who will lose.

I especially like the mention of fair use rights. Your allowed to make a backup copy of the media you own, but it is illegal to circumvent copyright protection.

After reading this and this, I'm going to be building a mythTV box this weekend. I've had it with the constant shape shifting that Tivo is doing.

SC do you know if other non Tivo dvrs are to included in these hi Jinks? I am going to buy an Alienware DHS-5 as the heart of my new media center and it has DVR capacity. If anyone knows the answer please let me know before I drop a couple thousand bucks

Oooohhh, hombrew PVR. Look forward to hearing about the specs!

I put one together using a case from Shuttle and an ATI All-in-Wonder a few years ago. Very sweet, worked like a charm, except I could never get picture-in-picture working.

Good luck Derek!

SC I sense a new mean streak in you and it isnt pretty. You are officially on the "LUMP OF COAL" list. I have come to count on your sage wisdom, not your sharp tongue...Whats that google thing again? Good luck with your project.

I think it's just an extension of the "use the search function before posting duplicate topics" comment

On topic: SC I'm interested on how your Myth TV box works out. I've been looking into setting up something like that for some time now but I haven't taken the plunge

Just ignore him. He's just being a git. Either that, or its that time of the month.

Got some of the parts and still waiting on others. I'm beginning to think that I should've just gone with BeyondTV. But its not too late to do the switch yet. I'll decide once all the HW shows up.
