I don't know for sure about the TiVo. I do know the standalone series
2 TiVo would refuse to transfer some programs to a PC using their
software, so I suspect the DVD-burning unit *could* refuse some
programs, whether they are using that ability or not I don't know.
I'm also not positive that there are *no* tuner cards that encode
directly to DVD format, but I've never seen one. The Plextor Convert-
X units are advertised to dub to DVD but mine needs software to do
the proper encoding after capture.
A standalone DVD recorder along with a (probably illegal in the US)
Macrovision-deleter will record any analog video direct to DVD.
MythBurn does a good job of recording any recorded program to DVD,
and I understand that MythArchive is an improvement on that.
My feeling is that as long as I am not distributing or profiting from
my recordings I'm probably safe from a knock at my door.
