I am very much against DRM and I find the restrictions imposed on protected shows prevent me from using my equipment in what should be a reasonable way. As recently posted in another thread, despite wanting a second TiVo for the bedroom to gain extra tuners and the ability to watch recordings on either TiVo, so much of what we record is protected that it doesn't seem worth it. I'm more likely to use a video distribution system than buy another TiVo. But, in TiVo's defence (and I may be wrong here, but this is how I understand it) they aren't the ones imposing the restrictions, but are implementing the restrictions forced on them in order to use cablecards. And I don't want to lose cablecards. I agree that imposing DRM restrictions on content streamed from our own machines is pointless, but at the same time I am always going to treat the PC copy as the master anyway, so it doesn't actually cause a problem for me. But I admit that even when I've downloaded free web videos through the TiVo, I've been puzzled as to why they are restricted when I can typically pull the same video through the web-site with no restrictions on it.
