It's funny you should mention stuff like this because at least in
terms of WAF, the quality of recording playback doesn't matter so much
anymore. A lot of stuff that we might rent or get on netflix I've just
been buying it. A lot of this stuff is cheaper to get on DVD (especially
TV reruns) versus Netflix/Unbox/iTunes.
HD has been a problem though and I think I've finally managed to
work through that. Although I am not sure I've seen the wife watch
anything non-ripped from since before the 0.21 release.

I've got a copy of AnyDVD primed for precisely this.
As you might have guessed, we don't really mess with physical
media in this house anymore... it's very cool.
