Following up on previous Tivo DRM Snafu coverage
“Denney said the copy protection is trigged by a flag in the video signal. The reports appearing on the Web appear to be cases where TiVo misinterprets noise in the signal as a copy protection flag, and imposes the restrictions.”
Cory dug asked around at a DRM conference and didn’t find TiVo’s claim that “noise” somehow triggered the content protection too credible, unless it’s due to incompetence.
O’reilly blogger Mark thinks TiVo is being disengenious about noise-gate.
