HELP! Samsung DVD-R120 Recorder

Hi everyone

i’m new to this… I just recently purschased a Samsung recorder… under the impression that i could record movies or tv shows from my digital box. this apparently is not the case because i can not record scambled channels from the digital box. i can record channels from my basic cable just fine. i was wondering if there is any way around this or was i just totally mislead by buying this product.

thanks a bunch!


Have you got your DVD recorder’s input connected to the cable box output via a SCART lead?

I presume you have access to, and can view, the protected channels otherwise?
