1. Try it.

2. Because sometimes the handshake affects other connections. See the following post on CGMS-a and the workarounds in post 1.

Make sure you've got your VCR connections correct, see the following FAQ. I guess if it's recording for a short while, the connections are OK as you state, so it must be a protection issue:

A PVR will record all channels, however, it will not record On-Demand since that's transmitted directly and not recordable. I assume by DVR you mean DVD recorder - they usually have the same CGMS-a issues, as outlined in that thread. As time passes, more stuff is being protected and more equipment respects the protection.
