Reasons to build a MythTV box number 1000001

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


People getting all pissy with TiVo for implementing copy protection/broadcast flag/MacroVision/DRM. 

In reality the people should be getting pissy with the networks and Hollywood.  TiVo are only doing what they have to do to stay out of court and in business!

But still, a MythTV box is looking like the smart option.  As Leo Laporte said on Last weeks TWiT-cast, the content owners are forcing people to turn to piracy because their Fair Use rights are being encroached on.

I’ll go start a KnoppMyth CD burning.
