I don't see any recent "copy protected" posts, so everyone gets to hear my story. I have a TiVo Roamio, and often use the TiVo desktop software to transfer movies and tv shows from the dvr to my networked hard drive. Mediacom recently had a rash of complaints on their customer forums regarding the sudden loss of pay channels. They had to send signals out to many boxes to re-pair the various devices and my TiVo was among them. Now, I have noticed that when I record on the Movie Channel or the NFL channel, the shows are marked "copy protected" when access through the TiVo desktop software, and therefore cannot be transferred to another drive. I asked the Mediacom board if this was intentional and got an "I am not aware" type of answer. Maybe not a good sign. Has Mediacom joined the dark side and plans to copy protect some or all of their programming? Does anyone have any insight? I will be very disappointed if the answer turns out to be "yes".
