Liteon dvd burner problem

i was wondering if anyone could tell me what might be wrong. I was trying to record from cable to a blank DVD. I turned on the liteon recorder and the source (cable) came out black and white with no sound. all the wires are properly connected.
Then I played it to the computer and I saw color and heard sound. But, I took the DVD out and put it in the DVD player for the TV. It woud not play the disk. :confused:

Most likely there is some kinda of protection on the movie you got from the cable company. Also make sure the format you get is matching the player format that will play it. Also you didn’t mention what kinda liteon model you had either.
