Re: What's the point of DRM?
forget the sky box and DVD recorder, we're only talking about BBC here so a DVB-T2 tuner plugged into a PC will get you HD streams recorded directly onto your hard drive.
The point of the DRM is that you are only allowed to watch the programmes for as long as the BBC say you can. At the end of that time period they are deleted. If you want to keep your files for longer, see above.
