No. the VCR was determined to be fair use by the Supreme Court.

I haven't played with it yet but isn't mythbuntu supposed to address a
lot of this? My may still need to pay for cable or something. I really
don't know. Unless you want actual cable shows, most or all of the
network shows are available off air. With an antenna and a tuner card
you could probably get mythbuntu to record everything you want. Should
be legal too since it's no different than recording to a VHS (or was
that technically illegal too?).
