I am experiencing problems with recording movies from my satellite. It doesn’t happen often, but sure is annoying when it occurs. I set up a timer to record a movie and the timer aborts because of “protected input source”. This may occur 1/3, 1/2, 3/4 of the way through the movie or it may even happen 5 minutes before the end (I would expect this within the first 0 to 5 minutes of the start of the movie, but not as far into the movie as it is doing).
Also, I really cannot believe that there would be any MV signal present in such broadcasts. Not only should I be able to record ALL movies broadcast, but the ones it is screwing up on are so old that I don’t think they even thought of copywrite protection! (1930’s).
Does anyone have any advice on this? Is it simply random or bizarre noise that is triggerring a false copywrite protection signal? Is this an inherent problem for LiteOn DVD/HDDs? I have the latest LiteOn firmware installed for the LVW-5045 and have tried older versions, no help with this problem doing that.
