I have been saving some TV programs on my computer. Great part of TiVo units.
But my wife wanted me to take my "Lonsome Dove" 4 part recording and save it to PC. It is greyed out and says "copy protection. Really? A very old, played on regular TV recording is copy protected, yet all my movies from Encore aren't (so far). This seems crazy to me, and from searching, seems there is no "Hack" available for series 4> TiVo units, and for the 3's, it's very complicated. Would renaming the file .ISO and then using AnyDVD to override the protection (that's what anyDVD does).
Very sad when you can't record and USE old movies and shows that are ancient by today's Media standards..
You could do it with good old VHS.
Any suggestions/opinions very appreciated.
