I am not at all surprised to hearseveralpeoplementionthat they think it is strange that Rocketboom is not available to be copied off of their TiVo boxes. We are against DRM and would likely desire to opt-out of any other form of distribution blocks.
The current TiVo box hardware does not support the transfer of content from video downloaded over I.P. into the Tivo-To-Go service. This is not an intentional restriction, it's a physical one. While this is currently the case, I have heard that there may be new boxes in the future that will be able to support the transfer.
Luckily, it's not that big of a deal because we already have available video on the web and our iTunes feed is optimized to work with iTunes and the video iPod, including a very specifically formatted set of metadata, etc.
