SONY RDR-VX530 + Copy Protection

I wish I had know about this Forum before I made my recent purchase :sad:

I bought a SONY RDR-VX530 Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder

I tried to record from my satellite a program on A&E and it would not record it on DVD, the same thing happened when I tried to records something on the
history channel.

Someone has told me that potentially I could disable it in the bios but not sure how.

Other say get something called
and that would be easier.

What should I do, has anyone heard or used Grex???

Please help this newbie out… :bow: . Thanks


The protection comes with the content, you cannot record such content digitally.

Can you explain further???
