Offering Hotel Guests a New Way to Check In
Are you looking for a great time saving solution for your hotel guests?

Only the cable networks and Time Warner Cable don’t want us to be able to do this. Where Leon lives, very program that’s not on one of the over-the-air broadcast networks is copy-protected. He can’t copy any of these shows to his backup drives…
