Why mess with PVRs when there are capture cards

and WinTV?

Then you don't even have to deal with the DRM and other
things such as UOPs (borrowing a term used for DVDs here).

Then you can record TV for later viewing anytime without
any restrictions (though PVR cards may start doing the
same if Hollywood shouts loud enough - and then it would
make older non-DRM crippled cards valuable items.)

Damn Right!
Two VAIOs here with TV cards/DVR software(from factory), not to mention the VHS(yeah, still have one hooked up) that has a "Commercial Skip" button on it.

*NO* Fees either!

Incidentally, I got my WinTV 250 card along with a VCR-
DVD Player combo so I could transfer my old tapes (though
I found most of the self recorded ones done at the slowest
speed to be of inferior quality and not worth taking the
time to capture.)

It also seems to bypass the standard CSS/CPPM copy
protection found on most older commercial DVDs as well.
