Question about Panasonic DMR-EZ27K

1 Answer

Cannot record from cablevision tv

THE SONY RDR-VX555 IS A PRETTY GOOD MACHINE BUT IT CANNOT DO WHAT I WANT IT TO DO. I BASICALLY WANT TO RECORD MOVIES OR SHOWS FROM CABLE TV. STATIONS LIKE HBO, CINEMAX AND SUCH CANNOT RECORD ON THIS MACHINE. IT GIVES ME A MESSAGE SAYING THAT YOU CANNOT RECORD COPYWRITTEN MATERIAL. THAT'S WEIRD SINCE I DID'NT KNOW THAT EVERYTHING ON PAY CHANNELS WERE COPYWRITTEN. THE SYSTEM LETS ME RECORD IT ON VHS. BUT IF I TRY TO TRANSFER IT TO DISC, I GET THE SAME ERROR MESSAGE. I SUBSCRIBE TO CABLEVISION IN NEW JERSEY. YOU WOULD THINK THAT IF IT LETS YOU RECORD IT ON THE VHS SIDE OF THE MACHINE IT WOULD LET YOU AT LEAST DO THE TRANSFER. I have a panasonic dvd recorder model DMR -EZ27 cant record from HBO encore, or any other prmium movie channel what can i do to fix this

Do not feel bad.......all DVD recorders can not record those channels nor any Disney kid tapes........as you say you can record to VHS (thats it) as of the last season of the Sopranos HBO put that electronic copyright in place...trust me every channel follow once DVD recorders became hot......there was a gadget not sure if its still on the market (Sima copy master is what I use for that last season) I dont use it any more, cant find it really.......

Blinking lights


I left if off and unplugged for a few hours. When I plugged it in it started working again. My recommendation if this happens to you is to just unplug it all and let it stand for at least 4 hours and then plug it back in.

Good Luck

Cannot record from cablevision tv


the government required a chip to be put in the recorders to maek sure we are not pirates
in addition the movie people put a flag of some sort across their signal prohibiting us as well

that law was overturned - as you all know we can make copies for personal use - not for sale

however - it is difficult to figure out which ones have it and which ones don't - and which movie companies are not flagging the recordings

Sony is clueless they are a joke -- i asked about the chip and they never, ever answered my question -- avoided it like the plaque

it is archaic - but i suppose we'll have to carry around an old vhs when we want to watch those premium movies that WE PAY FOR !!!!!!!!!
