Toshiba D-VR650 can't tape says canot record protected image

When trying to tape some channels a message appears that says can not record protected image. This happens on 3 channels. I can tape on 2 channels. The VCR is set up to digital. We do not have any kind of dish TV. We are using the box. I would like to be able to record on the VCR and watch a different channel on the TV. We also tape during the day when we are gone. So I would like to tape on all the channels. Before we switched over to the digitial we we able to tape all the channels on the VCR. Also the for our main channels the size of the picture is smaller. How do we make the picture to the full size of the screen.
Thanks

Unfortunately, this is a product of the modern/digital world. The entertainment industry wants every single person to buy the product, such as DVDs or music CDs. To that end, the TV channels are coded to prevent you from saving the content. About your only choice is to use an external converted and record the analog video. You will lose quality, but in most cases will still get the signal. As far as the image size on the screen, that is becuase of conversions between video formats. The recorder makes assumptions about the size of your screen, which apparently don;t match reality. You can try to contact the VCR manufacturer or check their website for hints.

    I forgot to mention thay it may be truly illegal to record the shows. You can try HULU or Amazon for very inexpensive shows soon after they are broadcast.

I have a Toshiba dvr 7 vcr dvd recorder. It occasionally gives an error message 85 when I am trying to copy a VHS tape to DVD. What does this mean and is there a way around it?


Commercial movie VHS tapes have copyright protection added to the tape. There is hardware in the recorder (mandated by law) that will sense this signal and not allow copying of these tapes to another tape or any other media. There are hackers that have built devices and modified equipment to circumvent this, but you risk legal action if caught.

Won't allow recording ESPN and other cable channels.


It sounds like the programs are copy protected. I've had the problem with an E 27 error, but I've had success with recording other programming.
