That is one shitty thing about a DVR. Unless you have a built-in DVD burner, Macrovision is a motha. Then again, I suppose it's another sign that we live in a disposable society. You ever notice how increasingly, more and more people are throwing stuff away before moving? Good stuff too like couches and furniture. It's just cheaper to buy new stuff at the new location rather than move it all. Same thing with how people buy something new when it breaks. Our fathers and grandfathers would actually repair things. Now, it seems like it's $50 to fix it and $75 to buy a new one, and those numbers might actually be reversed in more than a few situations.
