Too many people use their DVR's for long-term storage.
The "big deal" is - when your dealing with MPEG2 HD recording, it takes up probably DOUBLE the (HDD) space of MPEG4 HD. So IMHO, while a 500G HDD is "reasonable" for, say, either sat provider - it IS simply too small for any (current) cable system - or FiOS for that matter. Even Tivo realizes this, as their cheapest DVR only has 500g; the rest all start at 1TB+.
If/when they transition their HD all over to MPEG4, then it might be a different story...
That was my TV Capture card in Win98 days man, c'mon.
Nobody uses MPEG for anything anymore unless you do sh1t off yer digi cam or do DVD's which is stupid as rewritable HDD storage is actually cheaper per MB. Oh, and now most all units stream off the network...DLNA/Gaming console, etc. anyone?
Oh, and we have better GUI's than you'll ever have.
The Scene groups have officially switched over to high quality MKV/MP4 now. A 40min show is like 130-350MB in damn good qual. Never any commercials, ever.
So, you are saying by default, that pirated is better quality than what you currently are allowed to PAY to DVR?
