This time the major networks are pissed. ABC, NBC and CBS filed suit in California today against SonicBlue, the new parent company of ReplayTV, according to Yahoo.com and Reuters. This main issue is the new ReplayTV 4000 PVR has taken skipping commercials to the next level. In the past, Replay and TiVo units could fast forward though commercials much like you could if you had recorded it on your VCR. With the ReplayTV 4000, you can now accurately skip commercials. The suit also sites Replay’s ability to record "perfect digital copies" of TV shows and then distribute them over the internet.
