New sound system.
New DVD burner/VHS.
A hi-def version of the movie "Airborne" on the DVR.
Sorry, but this movie contains DRM that will prevent the DVD burner from properly copying it.
So, let me understand this:
I pay for cable. I pay for the equipment. I can record thousands of shows and movies and put them onto VHS. I can back up my old VHS tapes onto DVD. I can rip music and DVDs onto my computer and then burn copies to play in my DVD player.
But I can't record directly onto DVD a movie that doesn't even have a Region 1 DVD release?
A movie from 1993.
This is progress? Paying for crippled equipment?
I suppose it is progress to the manufacturers.
I'm really gonna stay awake at night wondering why so many people visit torrent sites.
