I'm NOT trying to break any rules of the forum just to let everybody know. I haven't tried this yet i just want to know because a want to buy a season of my favorite show but i don't want to use itunes because i can't watch it on my TV because i don't want to connect it. I also don't want to buy the ipod TV connector. Yes i have a HDMI cable but i don't want to go through the hassle. So is it legal to convert DVDs that i own to Ipod format. Please don't ban me if i am talking about something illegal! i really don't know!
