Will not record Fox Business channel or Fox News when recording on DVD recorder. Records other stations ok such as local stations also works on CNN,MSNBC,Weather channel etc. After 5-8 seconds it says will not "You cannot record a copy protected movie".
It will not record on HBO,Starz it says the same thing. I have a Panasonic and a Lite On unit and no problems with them. Any help would really be great. thanks Wheelman

I have hundreds of very valuable and irreplaceable DVDs made on this machine which although "finalized" will only play on this machine and on no other. The machine is now broken- they say the DVD...


You could buy one on E-Bay. Click on the link below, but if you really finalized the DVDs, they should play on other components.
The Sony like yours below is $149.95 and you can buy it now, not bid on it as normally done on e-bay.
Last resort you can take them to a video transfer service, so all is not lost.

I recently installed a Comcast digital adapter to my SONY RDR-VX515 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo and then onto the TV. Now, when I try to program the VCR to record, the only channel options are Ch 4, Line 1 and...


Hi and welcome to FixYa

Initially, postback the model number of the Comcast digital adapter and the TV.

Offhand, if the Comcast digital adapter is connected to the Sony through a coaxial patchcord, then the Sony would really have to be set to Ch 4 (or 3). Channel selection is done on the Comcast digital adapter. It is not possible to record one channel while viewing another.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa

CAN VIEW THE DVD ON A COMPUTER OR THE DVD RECORDER BUT NOT ON DVDS PLAYERS BOUGHT BEEFORE THE RECORDER


This is quite common of older players. Some only work with DVD+R discs and others with DVD-R discs.
Some player also does not read recordable discs (an early form to try prevent piracy)
Also make sure if recorded on your Recorder, that the disc is finalized before you try to play it on an older player. (See your menu / manual on the recorder for the procedure)
