I haven't seen anything to this effect on the Schedules Direct website that prohibits it, but it could be buried in the fine print somewhere. I don't see any reason why Schedules Direct would have...

Nor do any other DVR apps for PCs except WMC. If HDHR DVR gets it done then we'll finally have an option besides WMC for copy protected content. Fortunately for me, this is not an issue as all of...
