    I'm amazed that there is no thead on this threat to Tivo...The Digital Transition Security Act will only allow you 90 minutes to timeshift!...please follow this link and contact your representative to stop this insanity!

    You weren't around a month or so ago when we discussed this at great length?

    I just love the quote in the page referenced..

    "Networks like NBC have long hated that their shows could be recorded..."

    That doesn't jive with the fact that NBC is a significant and early investor in TIVO.

    It also doesn't jive with the fact that several key players at TIVO (Yudkovitz, Rogers) came directly from NBC. (In my opinion, in part, to watch over the NBC investment..)

    "When timeshifting is illegal, only pirates will timeshift"

    Are you prepared to be a pirate?

    Write or call your representatives or get an eyepatch and a parrot.

    Your choice.

    I called it a big dumb stupid draft back a month ago. the fact that two reps took the draft from the lobby group and just rubberstamped their names on it says a lot about the chances for the bill. But writing or calling is still a very good way to let represenatives know we are watching this stupidity

    Yeah.. I wonder how much those two reps got paid for that deal?

    I mean honestly.. does anyone think that most congressmen/women aren't in SOMEBODY's pocket?
