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.

SOURCE: How to eliminate error screen:"your tv does not allow display of this program through the dvi input source. please chose another tv input source."

"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.

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.

Can record Sky programmes but not view live.


You must connect up the TV to the SKY box, via Audio Visual cables too, in order to watch, recorded programs. You need to hook, up, Component, HDMI, or Composite, You select it by an EXTERNAL channel.
Connect the cable running from the wall into the "In" port on the Sky Box HD receiver. This cable brings in the signal to your receiver. Make sure the cable is securely fastened to the receiver, otherwise you might experience image and audio issues.
Attach an HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the Sky Box HDTV receiver. The HDMI is a single cable that provides both HD audio and video signals.
Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into an available HDMI port on the HDTV.
Power on the HDTV and the Sky Box HDTV receiver. Press the "HDMI" button on the TV's remote control. This will display the cable contents of the HD receiver onto the television.

BOSE 321 DVD movie movie picure is blue. Its connected to a Sony LCD digital Wide screen TV Bravia Model KDL 40V2500 and my cable box. Could it be a loose connection.


Sounds like you are using a component cable(red,green,blue) rather than an HDMI cable.

Component cables are fine to use but if one of the 3 cables is disconnected, loose or bad, you may see blue video.

Check for loose connections or bad cables and make sure the proper color is plugged into its matching color.

Hi, Just bought a 26" sony bravia tv. I don't use cable or satillite. I just need to find out what kind of cable I need to connect my panasonic DVD player to the TV and which port do I plug it into?


The best quality would be a HDMI cable, if your DVD player has a HDMI port on the back.

Any of the HDMI ports on the TV can be configured to take the audio over HDMI (digital audio) or over a separate rca stereo patch cable (menu option in the TV for analog audio).

So if your DVD has HDMI, just buy a HDMI cable and you're done. If you cannot figure out how to switch the audio input, there is no big harm in just installing a separate RCA patch cable between the two for the sound.

The next-best would be a component-video cable (Red/Yellow/Green) RCA cable, with a separate red/white RCA audio cable.

Alternately, if your DVD has a S-video port, that is comparable to component video. Then you would need a separate audio cable as well.

Last but not least, if your DVD player is ancient, it may only have a yellow video out connection, then red/white for audio. You then just need a standard yellow/red/white RCA component cable.

Periodic tv screen blackouts


The problem is your cable box. I know you said you replaced it, but I work on TV's everyday and, sorry to say this but cable box HDMI outputs have serious issues, like no or intermittent sound and video. I have seen customers exchange their cable boxes 5 and 6 times and still have the problem. Your best bet is to use the component outputs of your cable box, visually you will not see a picture difference between component and HDMI when using a cable box. Your other solution is to get satellite; I have NEVER seen an HDMI issue with a satellite box

Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.

BRAVIA TV KDL-40V2500


i had the same problem and the only way i could solve it was to disconnect power from the tv, let it "reset" then it would be ok for a bit. the problem went away entirely when the cable company updated its software for its hd box. might be coincidence....

also, pre-update, the resolution wouldnt automatically set correctly. If I turned on the tv to a hi def station, it would set to 480 and only set to 1080 when i changed to a normal station then back to the hd. then it was fine. again, after the update from the cable company this went away.
