I record alot of the televised NHL games to DVD using my DVR and Sony DVD/VCR combo. I noticed some of the networks now have copyright protection during their broadcasts, so I am unable to dub anything from some channels-onto DVD. When I try to record, I get a pop up window on my tv screen, saying “unable to record. Copyright protection.” This is new for Fox Sports. Currently, I can still record games on CBC and NHL Network.
Are they broadcasting some kind signal to prevent recording?
If you know, what kind of hardware can I obtain to bypass this? Some kind of descrambler?
Not computer software, but something that I can plug in-line with by cable box or Sony DVD/VCR combo to enable me to do this?
I have a 2 year old Sony DVD/VCR combo, and I have Comcast digital cable as my provider.
