Re: How do i Connect VCR/DVD player and computer to nextbox?

When I tried to use "Copy to VCR" on the PVR the other day, a message popped up on the screen about not being able to record the program.  Sure enough, it recorded a blank screen with no sound. I assume that this is some sort of copy protection. For testing, I tried copying a few minutes of other shows I had on my PVR. I couldn't copy the ones from cable 8 (CTV in Toronto) but shows from other networks could. Has CTV copy protected all of its programs? Is this a new trend? Are any other networks copy protecting their shows? Also, when I was watching the show on my PVR, it wasn't in HD. Is it time to cut the cord and switch to an antenna?

Re: How do i Connect VCR/DVD player and computer to nextbox?

I just recorded a few seconds of The View from CTV to my DVDR using my SA8300HD PVR no problem. I haven't come across any "copy protection".  I seldom use the DVDR anymore except for playing DVDs, or for experimenting, since I've had a PVR. Before that, I had it and a VCR hooked up to my main TV, plus a VCR on another TV.
