    It seems such a step backwards to go back to SD recordings on a standard SD Sky+ box too.

    Planet eStream - Video Capture & Archiving, Digital Signage, Live TV

    No worries. Here's another useful link too: Channel 4 Learning - DVDs, CD-Roms and free online education resources and activities for schools just incase!

    ERA only covers free-to-air broadcasts, which doesn't include Sky. Even if you've used your Sky+ to record a BBC show, though, circumventing copy protection is illegal, which is why using dubious methods to grab content from iPlayer isn't OK. It's a daft situation where if you know ahead of time, you are OK to schedule a recording from an aerial; if you decide you want the content after seeing it air, you can't obtain it from iPlayer/a copy-protected recording, even though the end product is the same.

    Copyright law is stupid and archaic.

    Interesting that it only covers FTA stuff. Cheers for that.
    Shan't be nicking any of those dodgy alien shows off of History then!

    I did think it was the case, and (as far as work stuff goes) if I have to use some technical jiggery-pokery to make it work, I generally file it as illegal and I won't be doing it.

    You are right though. In a time when DVR and online Catch-up are as common as watching live, the copyright laws are pretty antiquated!

    If you have an ERA+ licence, you can share with other ERA+ licence holders. If you missed something, the chances are that someone, somewhere, got it. ClickView Exchange is a Cloud sharing system based on this premise.


    Oh, and yes, the law is an ass.
