Macrovision protection works on the component video also - you might have better luck setting up a camcorder to video the TV ....

Peter28: Hi,
I am in need of some assistance. I have just had MySky installed but am unable to transfer recordings to DVD. I like to keep stuff to watch later but there is only so much you can store on a hard drive.

I have a Sony DVD recorder and although I can record the program from the decoder, it won't transfer to DVD. It shows the caption " replace disc with DVD-RW in VR mode". I have done this but the caption keeps appearing and I am unable to record to DVD.

Is there any way round this? If not, I will cancel my contract for MySky and go back to the original decoder.



Hi Peter

Sounds like you possibly have the same Sony HDD-DVD recorder that I had up until a few months ago. I found that I was able to record direct to DVD, but if I recorded to HDD first I was stuck - there was no way to get it onto a DVD.

I called Sony and they were surprised, they said as far as they knew it should copy the recording to a DVD and then delete the recording from the HDD (which is what the prompts on-screen advised would happen). They asked me if I would email them with the steps taken and photos of the prompts I was getting on-screen, but I ended up just selling the thing on TradeMe. Pisses me off when over-zealous DRM renders a rather expensive purchase completely unusable.

Steve
