No one can answer that question definitively because it depends on the laws in your jurisdiction.


That being said, there are very few jurisdictions where recording anything that one would have access to "over the air," via owning a legal copy of original media, or being an active participant in a live experience on computer is illegal provided it is for personal use only.   If you start distributing recorded material, other than what would be covered by fair use in the context of a review or other writing, you're in an entirely different situation.
