Unbox Download Loophole Found

by

I found a bug that allows me to download an Unbox vid to several tivoes.

After clicking the download button on the downloads page with the list of your unbox videos, you get a thumbnail page with a drop down box to choose the device and click another download button.

After doing that, a confirm page comes up (for me in a new tab) which I close. I am left with the prior thumbnail page that still has the drop down box. I can then choose another device to download to and click download…

… repeat as many times as you like. I have a vid on 4 tivoes right now.

The downloads to each TiVo happen one at a time, and not necessarily in the order you requested.

    Question is..why is this considered a “hack” or a “cheat”? Why isn’t it a advertised feature?
