What the ????! Cable TV can't record... I have a VCR/DVD player/recorder. I have always been able to record.

Any program that came from TW Cable, network, HBO on demand, just everything. Went out of the country for a few months, now every time I hit the dvd 'record' on a HBO or 'On Demand' program, it says I cannot record, checked with the VCR/DVD maker and they say the error code signifies the broadcast... show more Any program that came from TW Cable, network, HBO on demand, just everything. Went out of the country for a few months, now every time I hit the dvd 'record' on a HBO or 'On Demand' program, it says I cannot record, checked with the VCR/DVD maker and they say the error code signifies the broadcast is 'protected' grrrrrrrrrrrr however, I can record the programs on the VCR just fine (quality suffers of course) but then they will not dub to DVD.

Is this being done by everyone? This ticks me off, I PAY for those programs! Why begin blocking them? TWC says I can record anything as long as I lease THEIR DVR... this seems almost illegal!!

I am not crimminally inclined, but I would not feel any guilt finding a way around this BS! Anyone else having this crap going down?

yeah i am venting as much as anythng, but would like to know how others are dealing with this GREED from TWC...
