I got a couple e-mails on this asking how I found it... I found it on
http://www.tvguide.com/listings/ and searched for "wood works." Below is the
first couple lines from the search results.

... and if you have Replay, you can go one step further. Since Replay is
designed to work on the web, it has a network connection built into the box.
With freeware (DVArchive or WinReplayTV), a computer on the same LAN can
easily access the Replay DVR. Programs can be extracted onto the computer.
A 1/2 hour WW show is about 414 MB in an MPEG2 format. These can be easily
veiwed on any computer and one program can fit onto a CD with no editing.
If you go one step further, and buy a program called Womble, the shows can
be quickly edited, stripping out all the commercials. This reduces the size
of the shows to 280-350 MB each. Two shows can then fit on a single CD.
I'm now recording every NYW and Wood Works show and storing them on CDs and
DVDs. Wish I had this Replay box years ago. It's worth every bit of the
$9.95/mo fee, plus the $199 I paid for the box initially.
Tivo is wonderful, but Replay will let you archive the programs easily. I
understand there are hacks to modify Tivo for this function. IMHO, that'd
be worth doing.
