Problem taping with charter cable

vbimport

#1

Is there anyway to go around the copy write protection on cable channels. My cable provider told me that i cant tape even the evening news on local tv station because of copy write protection enforced by the network. I dont know why they would keep you from taping local free tv stations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

I have charter cable and no problems except the DVR will not record on demand.

tried taping all channels and my dvd recorder keeps saying the channel is copy write protected. I have called charter and they tell me it is nothing on their end. Exchanged the recorder for a new one and same problem. Called the manufaturer and they tell me charter has put a block on my box. Charter denies any block but refuses to look into the problem. They want me to rent a dvr from them for an additional $15 a month and cant see spending the money on one if i already own a dvd recorder. Any help would be great thanks
