Must be possible, but before I go buy a DVD recorder, can I transfer to a DVD a program I have recorded on the TBox. I guess if a had a TV tuner card I could also transfer the program to my notebook, but I am not sure whether there is such an item as a USB Tuner.
Following on the Macrovision advice, I read that this is limited to, and implemented by, the recording device, be that DVD or Tape. One forum post mentioned that Macrovision protection would not apply to a PC connection. I am going to try with an EasyCap DC-60+ USB device which allows PC recording by intercepting the signal where it would normally go into TV. At $20.00 (TradeMe) its worth a shot and I will post back on success, although it may be a week or so.
