Hi everyone, Thanks to the advice of everyone here, I got a Panasonic E80 last year and am loving. it. Just a great machine. Now, I've been thinking about getting TiVo. I realize the hard drive works about the same way, but am very interested in some of the features that Tivo has. My question is, can you take what is stored on Tivo and burn it to DVD without a major loss in picture quality? Are there copy protections built in to Tivo programs to prevent recording of them? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
