Did CTV recently start copy protecting everything?
I have an ancient TiVo (Series 2 DT) hooked up to a Rogers E940 (SD) box via Composite and S-Video. It's been recording fine and it's time to back up some shows to my computer using kmttg 1.1i.
It appears that everything recorded from CTV or CTV2, and AFTER Sun Jun 28 (so starting Mon Jun 29) has the copy-protected flag set. I've only ever seen this on HBO (on a newer TiVo using a CableCard in the US).
Specifically, all shows on CHRO (CTV2) from Jun 30 on are copy protected. Shows recorded Jun 15 and Jun 28 are not copy protected.
On CJOH (CTV) I only have shows from Jun 29 on, and all are copy protected.
The only other protected shows are on WDIV (Detroit), Late Night from Jul 14 and Jul 15, and one show on WJBK (Detroit), So You Think You Can Dance from Jul 13. I believe both those US shows are actually CTV simsubbed. Other shows on WJBK are not protected, nor are any other channels'.
This is frustrating because the drive is only 80GB and even in SD that's not a lot of room. I'm asking in hopes that it's not a CTV move but just some other cause I can adjust for.
