One thought on “Rent my DVR!

  1. I tried it today with “Veronica Mars”, and it’s just a bittorrent client …
    2 minutes after the show appeared on the torrent networks, the rentmyDVR client started downloading.
    Analyzing the TCP/IP traffic clearly showed it was using the bittorrent protocol. (Including the fact that your pc is also uploading to a bunch of people …)
    Clever guy, though, earning some money with such a simple trick !
    Maybe if I’m REALLY busy and can’t spear the 2 minutes to pick up the torrent myself, he can have my 20 cents. (But then again, if I’m that busy, how onearth am I goning to find the time to watch the show ! )
