LVW-5045A(Purchased in August 2005, 198-US firmware), 203-US is current firmware
When timer recording (different channels (NBC, CBS, PBS,WBN), times and speed) from the internal tuner(U.S., NTSC, Standard Cable, directly connected to Comcast coax via high quality 1:3 splitter)I sometimes receive a Protected Input Source error, indicated by an orange triangle with an exclamation point instead of a green check mark . Sometimes the recording will not happen at all, sometimes it will record for two hours before it stops.
Tech support at Liteon has been no help. One tells me to upgrade the firmware, the other indicates I shouldn’t have. I tried different/older versions of firmware, fine tuned channels, etc…etc…
If I was trying to record HBO or via a cable box/satellite feed, OK, put PBS, ABC, WBN, NBC. And if it was protected content, why would it record for 1:48 of a 2HR show and then crap out…Copy protected commercials??? Noisy/dirty signal from the internal tuner???
I would appreciate any comments or ideas.
