TWC and copy flags for cable card

After the recent price hikes with TWC's DVR and the poor excuse of improvements, I've been considering building my own DVR system again.

A few years ago it was pretty well known TWC flagged all programs except the local channels as copy-once, effectively making a multi-room DVR system impossible without the use of Xbox 360 based WMC clients.  

I haven't been able to find any updated information to see if that has changed.

My ideal system would be MythTV based with Raspberry-pi based clients, however programs can only be flagged as copy-freely in order for recording via MythTV to function.

Does anyone know if TWC still flags all programs with the copy-once flag or do they now correctly use copy-freely flag?


It has not changed, and is unlikely to change.
