Re: 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.

The new recorder comes with security systems in it - when it encounters programs that have a "Do not Copy" signal on them it will refuse to work. This is how it's designed to work, there's nothing you can do to change that. BTW , even if you could do that it would have been illegal - recording a copy-protected program is considered by the lawyers of the channel in question as piracy .
The older one didn't do that because it didn't had the security system.
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.
Cindy Wells (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.)
most dvr units froim cable and satellite companies use a type of copy protection that does not allow you to copy programs to a disc. the cable company wont tell you this but they do and there isnt any way to work around it
I have the same problem currently. I have successfully recorded to the Sony CM5 in the past from my DVR, but no longer can. I have Comcast and wonder if they have changed the DVR firmware and blocked output. Also some broadcasts have something in the signal to stop recording. I got half of my program done, and can't record the rest on DVD. I will try to DVR local news, then record to the Sony, to see if it's a signal issue or something with the Sony. I haven't tried to record from a VCR.
I have heard of this problem before check out your user guide or you can go to this web site and type in your model number and it should give you an online manual. The website is: http://www.funai-corp.com/support/manuals.aspx, try it out hopefully it works.

My recorder has stopped accepting NEW DVD-RW discs and ejects them. There is no problem loading DVD-R (new or recorded)or loading previous recorded DVD-RW, initializing and re-recording I have tried several different DVD-RW makes. Puzzling??
