    It may have been another thread here, but isn't copy protecting every channel not allowed by FCC? I thought the non-premium channels were supposed to be transferable?

    Actually, the individual cable company has the right to copy protect every channel that is not also available over the air (i.e. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, etc.). And my cable company sets its CCI Byte at 0X02 for every channel it has a legal right to, even standard def. and so-called "analog" channels, which means you are allowed one copy, meaning the one you have on the tivo. My former company set the CCI Byte at 0X00 for all channels except certain HD movie channels and premium channels, which is probably mandated by those particular stations or the MPAA for the individual programs. Since the S2 has no cablecard to flag programs, I can now record and transfer, though the quality s significantly less and the transfers slow. The only thing is that there are some digital channels I do not receive on standard cable. Still trying to hash out other options.
