    Hi All

    Has anyone opened up there Tosh to see just whats inside ???
    reason for asking as far as macrovision goes is it not a chip that gets put into place so that when a mac. signal talks to the HD when trying to record and there for stops the recording ...What if this chip was removed and there was nothing to tell the HD that the movie your trying to record is macrovisioned !!!!!!!!!

    Can this be done ???

    The box comes open easily enough. I've had it open to play with the fan. There are just a few screws on the back to undo. It's trivial to get it back together as well.

    I am sure the macrovision is built into the TV out chip, so u cant simply remove it, but I suppose u could replace with a chip that doesnt have macrovision, infact most chip makers make 2 types of a chip, one with and one without
