Windows 7: Removing Ads From WTV files - I'm Failing - Please Help!

dsp - some info: Freeview is a free to air digital UK service used by most viewers. Other platforms are Sky satellite (pay) and Freesat (free)

Freeview (UK) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Freesat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

we also have Virgin (pay - optical cable) and a few hybrid products combining broadband and any of the above. Quite a few people use broadband only (real-time and 'catch-up'), the favorite being BBC iPlayer.

I guess UK encryption is weaker than US if it is easily circumvented by Super. Cyberlink Media Espresso also 'doesn't see' UK encryption. There are others. The OP is in the UK so that's why I gave UK info.

Judging by the amount of US TV shows available via torrent and cyberlockers, it seems US encryption can also be bypassed, although I hear Warner Bros are currently taking legal action against a company selling HDCP crack devices

Warner Bros, Intel File DMCA Suit Over HDCP Crack Devices

at least in the US you don't have a TV license (145), detection vans and fines or jail for transgressors !

Many cable provider environments are not set to use the copy-once flag or deliver encrypted content (which together are essentially hack-proof digital protections schemes). Time Warner Cable is, unfortunately, not one of them and virtually everything they deliver IS both copy-once and encrtypted.

But much of the source content that appears on the torrents has been recorded using analog (i.e. component video) source devices rather that true 100% bit-perfect digital, as an easy approach to bypassing digital copy-protection schemes. The recordings made from component video are almost indistinguishable in video quality from recordings made from a true digital source, and are completely NOT protected or encrypted. The content providers are not happy about this either, but are really only hysterically paranoid about preventing 100% bit-perfect digital copies of their content... and have given up on trying to prevent analog copies.

Thanks guys, sorry if I came across as ungrateful (I'm not ungrateful). I've spent hours surfing around the internet trying to find a way of eliminating adverts automatically. I guess I'll have to live with them and use the 30 second skip feature on the control. Thanks anyway guys.
