The Electronic Frontier Foundation published its “HD PVR Cookbook” online to educate consumers on how to build their own HD personal video recorder that’s impervious to the FCC’s broadcast flag technology mandate.

The step-by-step guide is intended to prevent rules which go into effect July 1 from interfering with “making perfectly legitimate personal copies of broadcasts,” according to an EFF press statement.

The group is encouraging consumers to hold “Build-ins” where people can gather to build their own broadcast-flag resistant PVRs.
