I see more rumblings in the Tivo community over copyright issues:

It looks like Tivo boxes might one day automatically delete stored content after a set time period. Tivo is playing down the rumours but it does look suspicious.

There's a simple lesson for anyone buying technology which allows you to record and/or transfer media content: Don't be complacent. Assume that copyright holders won't be happy and a new argument is always just around the corner.
