It has started to do that only now because up until now the owners of that channel haven't activated the copy-protection flag from the signal of their channel. You will gonna have to make a phone to ask them why they did that.
If they don't take it out then there's nothing you can do, not at least legally - you will have to reflash the recorder with a hacked firmware that ignores the flag. Beware, this is illegal and punishable with huge fines if caught.

    In that case the control processor is malfunctioning (it's no longer able to decode the permissions and assumes that all are off) and the only way to fix that is to replace the entire mainboard - it will be cheaper in the end to just buy a new recorder.

Have you recorded the same program, which you were trying to, before?

    Sometimes very popular programs are relayed by some channels as copy protected in order to avoid duplication. Most probably you might have tried recording such a program. Or is it the case with whatever you try to record?

Can't read DVD+R that were recorded on LG-DR389 on my PC / Laptop DVD


The DVD+R is the older version that was used, all newer ones use the DVD-R now, your problem is the disc is not recognized in the other players because of the different format.

My DVD recorder LG RH1858 isn't recording properly. It shows the message "record blocking sidnal are detected". Please inform.


Unfortunately, your recorder is picking up a signal in the broadcast that copy-protects the show. The recorder is programmed to forbid copying of protected material. Depending on the source of the copy-protection, you may be able to block out the copy protection signal with a hardware filter. One example of these would be the Sima CT-2 that is placed between the S-out of the receiver and the S-in of the recorder.

I hope this helps.

(One common sources with this issue: a DVR that passes on the copy protection to an attached DVD recorder. Particularly some of the new Satellite/Cable receivers with built-in DVRs. The non-DVR models of the products usually filter out the copy-protection.)

DVD player won't record full time that is programed into it


There are two things are likely that can cause this: media and copyright protection. If you use DVD-RW or DVD-RAM, you should be able to copy shows ONE time onto the DVD. If you use DVD+RW, or DVD+R, it may issue a copy protection message just before it stops recording.
If the media is bad, it can also cause the machine to stop recording, I believe. You could put it into a PC and try erasing the contents before re-trying to use it in the DVD recorder.

Recording to DVD recorder


I know you can copy to the VCR. but do not know if digital recording has any form of copyright protection. You can try to copy by connecting the outputs of the DVD TV to the inputs of the DVD player recorder.

Dvd and vcr recorder


Well LG makes this unless you can find a firmware up then you must order some DvD-RW with CPRM this allows you to copy your shows once then recording over them.I got this from LG.It's a common firmware problem that started when digital signals got sent with copy right protections.
