Can people copy copyrighted movies using these things, assuming you have 2 dvd drives?
I would think that the copyrighted material would have some sort of protection built in that prevents this. I realize you can copy them on a DVD burner in a bit by bit copy, but I wonder if you can copy them using 2 dvd players (one is the recorder) that are hooked together. I remember that some VHS movies had protection built in that prevented you from copying from one VCR to another but not all of them were like that. I am not looking for any type of explanation on how to do this, just wondering if it can be done (no hacking or any special tricks. I’m talking about straight out of the box).
Also, can you record shows from your cable/satellite to a DVD copier or are these things only good at copying things like your home movies?
I can’t imagine a very large market for a device that costs so much if you can’t even record your TV programs. Or possibly these devices have a high return rate when people realize they can’t record Monk when they are away.
I also wonder when our homes will be raided and all of us turned into criminals when they find all of our VHS tapes with copyrighted material of shows we have recorded, but that’s another thread I suppose.
