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?
Its a grey area. In theory you should not be able to record at all but they way I see it is that when you watch in on live tv, the TV company get money for the ads and they pay the royalties to the producers etc. When you watch a recorded version, you are not generating any revenue for the TV company or the company that created the content so the ads are not serving a purpose
