I wanted to make backup copies of some of my DVD's cause my little boys (almost 2) gets his hands on them some time. I have a VCR/DVD Recorder with a extra DVD play hooked to it. However most of the DVD will not copy cause of the copyright protection. I found this weekend if I run the DVD to TiVo, have the TiVo on channel 0 I can play my DVD over TiVi. Pause it, recorded it, etc. Also I have the TiVo going to my DVD-R and now I can RECORD MY DVD's!!!! YEA AGAIN TiVO!!
