Dvd recorder message (This picture cannot be recorded)

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

    I have the same problem. My cable box is Scientific Atlanta and my dvd recorder is Sony. I get the same (This picture cannot be recorded). The cable box has an option "COPY TO VCR". I tried using this but I had no luck. How about you? If you go to recorded list menu select the program you are trying to record and it has an option to Copy to VCR. I tried it with no success. Can you try it and see what happens.

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.

SOURCE: will not record copyright programs

No, now they code protec the new systems so we can't infringe in the copyrights. Try to find a old one & tranfer your movies to DvD.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

Hi, I have a Samsung HR720 DVD-TV recorder and since we have gone digital the quality of the picture recorded is blurry. I have checked the back of the recorder and it doesn't appear to be any option...


Hi, Check the settings in the TV menu. Set the sharpness abit higher. Also if you have already you need a set top box (PVR) to view digital signal and to record it as well. Good luck.

YOUR TV DOES NOT ALLOW DISPLAY OF THIS PROGRAM THROUGH THE DVI IN


I solved the same problem by disabling SIMPLINK from OPTIONS menu. I own the LG TV myself. The LG TV comes SIMPLINK "ON" as default setting from the factory. Go to MEMU -> OPTIONS -> Turn SIMPLINK to "OFF". This should work....

A/V Signal Outout through Onkyo TX-SR705


Are you trying to record cable programming with your DVD recorder? If so, you might want to try using component cable as HDMI does have a copy protection circuit that might be preventing your recorder from receiving the image. Just try to connect the cable box component (RED/GREEN/BLUE) cable to your DVD recorder. If that doesn't work, then try to change everything over to component cables. HDMI is a great cable to use but it the only required to display 1080p images and the only current source that uses 1080p is a bluray player. Everything else, such as your cable box and DVD recorder is 1080i and component cables are perfect for it.

Sony connectivity


OK, here are info...
first unplug TV and dvd recorder from AC outlet and put hdmi cable as follows...
at rear side of TV, you have 2 hdmi inputs, hook hdmi cable in any one of them and other end of hdmi cable will be hooked in hdmi out of dvd recorder rear side.
Now, plug both units in AC outlet and power up, go to TV menu > hdmi setup > and perform device list update.
TV will recognize dvd recorder and you will see dvd recorder logo screen.

Let me know if you need further info / help.
