Copy Protection on OTA shows?

I use my TiVo Premiere with an antenna, and am wondering if all/any of the shows I record would be eligible to be copied to my ipad. Does TiVo indicate copy protection on the recorded shows?

There's no copy protection on OTA content.

Arcady's right. But to answer the second question, the TiVo indicates which shows are copy protected, when you're looking to copy them. (However I don't believe there's any easy way to check if a show was copy protected directly from the TiVo it was recorded on. You need to be looking from a device capable of transfering shows from it)

When looking at the Now Playing list from the remote device (another TiVo, the iPad App, TiVo Desktop) copy protected shows will have a 'no' symbol (red cicle with a slash through it) to the left of them.
