Advertisements As it stands now cable companies can pretty much code anything that is digital anyway they see fit. I've learned this from people in this forum who have pointed out the laws and regulations concerning cable cards. Thank you all who responded. It doesn't make sense however to have channels like ESPN, ESPN2, TBS, and TNT be available to be recorded freely (0x00) but their HD counterparts are not allowed to be transfered (0x02). It doesn't make sense that Time Warner and other cable companies have been given the right to decide what should be copied freely or what should have limitations or not be copied at all. So we need to try and get the law changed. My understanding of it is the FCC is not involved in this and it has to be done through Congress. If you are interested in doing so feel free to write your Senators or Congressman. I put a sample letter here. My belief however is that nothing will get changed on this because the majority of people don't own TiVo HD or S3 and those that do won't take the time to actually do this based on the fact that I just mentioned. So I'd like to see. Will you write your Congressional leaders?
