    Yes. That is why they give you the facility to download.

    Ok, ive searched various websites and have found most of them showing the following.........they say.........

    you can only record programs off the tv to watch once then they must be deleted, and cannot be kept indefinately.

    As for DVD's being copied for personal use on portable players its definately something that needs to change........its just the same as being able to record cd's to portable devices and to HDD........the law definately needs to change.....imo.:rolleyes:
