NOTICE: We do not allow for the talk of .tivo file conversion

Hello All: (Not that it has been an issue in this section. Thanks for that.)

Please take note this this site is here to chat about TiVo related product and services.

We do not allow for the chat on file conversion to gets around TiVo encryption. This is due to DMCA and we care to have nothing to do with anything that can lead to issues with copy protection and copyright laws.

With the size and reach of this site, we draw a lot of attention throughout the industry. Because of this, we are concerned over any legal action that could be taken on a post you may have made to the site. As a result, not only could we have legal issues created, but so could you for the post made based on the content. In any case, this site would quickly close and that would be a loss for the thousands that visit it daily.

So please, keep on the topic of the TiVo product features and the use of TiVo and kindly keep the decryption and copying of programs off the site. If you are chatting on trascoding into a different format like Sonic does while it still retains the protection, I do not see this as an issue (but will look into it.). But if you talked about removing the protection by file conversion, that is an issue.

Remember...It does not matter if you bought a program that can do it. It does not make it OK to be done if you are still getting around the protection built in by the product.

Thank you kindly for your help and understanding in this matter.
