Default One day, I will own a TV Tuner. Just one thing...

...I need your opinions about something.

I whatch TV and my HDD is going to act like a VHS. Now, let's say...I record, The Simpsons, for example. I edit it so that there's no bloody ads and then I compile the new video. Then, I take that fresh video and burn it to DVD, so I can play it anywhere with a DVD player capable of playing AVIs and MPEGs.

Is that legit?

Cutting out the ads is illegal to the best of my knowledge.

It was still illegal with VHS I think...it honestly doesn't matter either way though, no one's going to care if you do it.

This page has some good info:

As long as you don't sell them it should be legal. If you distribute them you should be fine, as long as it's not on a large scale you won't get caught. I've never heard of anyone even getting caught and I've known a few people who did it almost as a career, you should be fine.
