"The Hollywood companies say the devices infringe on their copyrights by letting users build up libraries of TV shows, send shows to other users via the Internet and skip past commercials."

WOW! I can do all that with my VCR (well, I need to use my computer to send shows over the internet). What's so special about this box? That's what I've never understood. How is a PVR, legally, different from a VCR? Perhaps someone with some legal knowledge could answer this?

To them, yes. I asked LEGALLY. I don't believe the VCR was decared legal by the supreme court because the quality is bad:) Besides, will they outlaw TV tuners for computers next? Or video capture totally? I can get a capture as good as a TiVo, in MPEG2 and everything, through my ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 7500 card.
