I believe you can still do what you do with VHS. Recording an analog
signal that has no protection mechanisms is not forbidden in this bill.

So as long as you have analog TVs, they cannot really do anything about it.
It will be different when the signals between the cable box or satellite 
and the TV are also only digital and the signal is protected.
