Who Killed TiVoToGo?

Ben Drawbaugh

It is nearly impossible to be a HDTV fan and to boycott DRM, because DRM is embedded in almost every type of HD programming. As with all DRM it is very complicated and almost impossible to keep track of all the limitations and restrictions. Every time we turn around we learn of another form and the only HDTV without restrictions is OTA HD, which was almost locked down via the Broadcast Flag. The latest feature to fall victim to DRM is TiVoToGo on the Series3 and right around the corner are some of our favorite Vista Media Center features, like rolling your own HD DVR. While none of this is a surprise to most of us you may not know the whole story and the Electric Frontier Foundation has done a great job of laying it all out and even providing everyone with a list of things that you can do to make a difference.
