+1 for davids idea..

recieving the broadcast leagally and then illegally taping it isn't traceable...

downloading any copyrighted material without paying for it is illegal, and tracable.

most places have a place where you can buy shows now, to watch on the internet or as a high quality download.

ArrizX, if you want a show with lots of twists and turns watch Arrested Development. It's on G4 if you get that network, funniest show ever.

Or family guy, lots of twists and turns. Like that chicken that fights Peter for half the show- totally blew my mind!

Grab a cheap TV Tuner and actually record them. Much better for you and it's actually more safe than going in torrent sites and downloading them.

TV Tuner is always the winner.

TV Tuners rock. I've got almost a dozen South Park's recored on my other PC. It kicks so much ass. I just need to figure out how to get the movies out of Media Center now.

Meh.

Rep point for anyone who can link me to something like that.

i believe your media center videos are saved in the "my videos" folder in your documents.
