Not sure if this is a related issue, but i'll try this here:

I have my PVR connected with an HDMI to my TV. I also have regular AV cables connecting it to my VCR.

On occasion I like to tape stuff just to take to my upstairs TV which isn't connected to a box. Normally this works fine; there have always been some movies that wouldn't tape because of protection issues, I guess; but most On Demand series would normally tape fine onto my VHS.

Now, nothing tapes at all. It's not a connection problem, because it tapes for a couple seconds each time before going blank.

Has it become impossible to tape any programs anymore? Would buying a DVR correct this? Also if this is an HDMI issue, two questions.

1. Would using component cables instead to connect box to TV change anything?

2. The box is not connected to the VCR, obviously, with an HDMI. Why does this still effect the recording?

thanks 57; I'll try it with the component questions. I guess the same holds true if you "copy to vcr", right? (as opposed to hitting record on the vcr as I watch) making the function rather useless then.
