Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
Recorded ok until cable box replaced on12/23/08 due to power failure. New box has HDMI connection. Old was component video. TV is Sony KDL-40V2500. Cable box is Atlanta Scientific 4250 HD. The message stated in summary happens on every station, every program and every show I tried to record. Both analog and digital.
''Sony brushed me off with this: I'm sorry for the difficulty you're experiencing to record programs on your Sony DVD Recorder. Copyright-protection errors may occur when attempting to record programs that are copyright protected or when recording from a digital network recorder. Typically, pay movie services, pay-per-view and on-demand programs are broadcast with copyright protection. This copyright protection cannot be overridden and is normal operation.''
Must be some other answer. Time Warner does not block everything. Please Help........John Allen
SOURCE: copyrighted dvds
Copyright protection is to prevent you from illegally stealing material and breaking the law.
If you Google for DVD copying software you will find lots of programs out there. Do remember though, copying DVDs and Video is illegal!

SOURCE: VCR copyright
On the side that faces out of the tape that sticks out of the vcr there should be a square indent. This makes the tape read only and tells the player that it is copyrighted. If you were to cover it with a piece of tape it should work. Just make sure the tape is on really good so that it doesn't fall off into your machine. I'm assuming they are your personal family videos that you accidentally broke the tab off of and not actual hollywood videos that you would get into trouble for copying.

"cable box to tv is hdmi cable"
Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.
