Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
I have a wideopenwest HD DVR that connects to my 42 LCD by HDMI. I have a phillips DVD recorder also connected to my LCD by HDMI. When I connect my DVR to my DVD recorder I was getting a Copyright error that prevented them to work together. I found that when I disconnected the HDMI from the DVR to the tv that the DVD worked. I dont want to unplug the HDMI everytime I want to record. I can not stop the signal through the tv programming. What can I do?
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.

Use 2 scart leads from av1 and av2 of the dvd via a spliter .
With the out put from spliter pluged into tv.
(DVR 1600 output is 1/2 of a scart socket and the input is
the other 1/2).
ps:- no auto switching on o/p or i/p!

New HD tv. Have digital cable box connected to tv., cable box connected to DVD recorder, but can't get setup menu to come up on tv screen. I had a similar problem. I have a HD tv connected to a digital cable box. I hooked up the DVD recorder with the wires it came with, but it would not play or give me the menu. However it was correctly hooked up. So the next day I connected a HDMI wire from the DVD recorder to the tv and everything works now.

"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.

I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.
