You have to do this

Follow this link and do as they say. Since June or July of last year, the FCC mandated that all Cable Boxes have FIREWIRE ports. This is very cool because with some free software from Apple, you can turn you Mac into a TIVO to record your favorite television, time shift, etc. I’ve been recording my favorite MTV videos off of VH-1 Classic (which sucks a lot more now than it did before I left for Hong Kong I should note). But then discovered my cable company has On Demand videos, which created a dilema. Why should I time shift something that is always available? In a world with a jukebox in the sky, why do I need a local copy of anything? This is the kind of thinking RIAA needs to get on board with. Give us what we want and we won’t steal it. ]]>
