Which is the best forum to discuss this?

I have a neighbor that is moving to Greece and has asked me to record her currenlty scheduled recordings, download to DVD and mail to her in Greece, in exchange I get to keep her Tivo2 with lifetime subscription.

Yes - I read the disclaimer on this forum, I also read the disclaimer on the others, so don't really know where is the best place to ask this question.

1 - Is what she's proposing legal? She's not reproducing anything, just watching the shows she normally would if she were still living in the U.S.

2 - I would be burning the movies onto my PowerBook DVD burner. What is the recommended method for connection?

3 - I read the FAQ's (which were no help) and did a search on the forum for this answer only to find links to outdated help sites.

4 - Is Tivo2Go going to be released? Is this the product that could best help me?


Thanks for any assistance.

1) Technically yes, it is illegal. Since she's not paying for the actual cable or sat or w/e, hence she's not paying for the copyrighted media that she wishes to consume. Same as burning a copy of a movie or CD for your buddy. However, I doubt the RIAA or MPAA will hunt either of you down for it.

2) At this point there is no legit way to get video from the TiVo to the PC/Laptop w/o disabling encryption and extracting the video, which is evil and will infact make you go bald and/or blind. Plus it requires hacking the TiVo.

3) Try the "other" site for more info on illegit methods of video xfer as you will not find info for it on this board. See #3.

4) Yes, it should be out any time now and will allow you to do exactly what you described. At this point if you have no inclination to hack said TiVo then T2G is the only product that will help you.

Another point of legaility, would be export of those programs (especially privately recorded from a TV showing), or importation into Greece.

Many TV shows are available on the internet almost immediately after airing, although some of those sites have been closed down. If your friend has a high speed internet connection in Greece then that is an option to consider - they could also watch the shows within a few hours of the airing in the US. Check out sharetv.net

Those torrent sites are blatantly illegal though.
