TiVo won't save certain shows or allow moving them

"I recently got a sample of Tivo DRM, accidentally I suspect. Recently a Simpson's rerun recorded with a red-flag next to it (an icon I've never seen before). When I selected the episode, I got a message to the effect that 'the copyright holder prohibited saving the episode past date mm/dd'. I also noted that this episode could not be copied using Tivo Togo (but ironically it could be 'saved to tape' – I guess that is the analog hole)."

Boing Boing followed up with, "TiVo has added several anti-features to its PVR. Now, some shows can't be saved forever, or moved using TiVo2Go."
