TiVo 7.2 OS adds content protection, blocks transfers, and auto-deletes some shows

PVRblog (blog)

Need a good reason NOT to get a TiVo?

I recently got a sample of Tivo DRM, accidentally I suspect. Recently a Simpson's rerun recorded with a red-flag next to it (an icon I've never seen before). When I selected the episode, I got a message to the effect that "the copyright holder prohibited saving the episode past date mm/dd".

Mental note: go back in time, kill person that thought up of this, stupid, translation of the copyright law that we currently have... Also, while in the past, invest all money in Yahoo. And bet on the Red Soxs winning the World Series. That is all... for now
