I had a Humax Tivo DVR with DVD recorder but it died, so I just got a TIVO HD. The Humax could record anything on the Tivo onto a DVD. The Tivo HD has copy protection on most of the programs I want to put on my PC (via Tivo to Go) or on DVD. Is there any way around this?
Legally, you can use Tivo Desktop PLUS
Transfer a program to your pc as a .tivo program. Tell Tivo Desktop Plus to convert file for use in a generic MP4 player.
Use AVS Video Converter cvt MP4 to 720p AVI file
Then use any authoring tool to write it to a DVD
Many cable companies are flagging all programming as copy protected except for OTA channels. You're probably better off using an S2 if you want to copy recordings to a computer.
Even if one sticks with an un-hacked TiVo, one can easily do a great deal better than TDT+, and for less money.
