    I was under the impression that the DVI was the new 'HDCP' interface that has 'anti-piracy' features built in.

    I'm all for anti-piracy features.

    I'm all against anti-TiVo, Anti-Home Recording, Anti-Anything we can do today legally.

    If I record a TV Show at home, for my personal viewing, Anti-Piracy measures should make sure that I would be unable to give it to someone else, that's it.

    I don't want them deciding how long I have it.
    I don't want them deciding if I can even record it.
    I don't want it limited to the device it was originally recorded on if it has removable media. Meaning if something dies, or I upgrade, I don't want my past library of recorded titles (which is small) to be useless.
