Hi, ALL.

I have a Philips DVR and it was working great,at that time I thought MY other was going to get an HDTV,so I got the new HDTV box without the DVR and suddenly I found my DVR TV guide was not working as it should connected to the BOX! after replacing the box and having Service look at this problem(they did not know either)

I figured they changed the firmware in the box to BLOCK the TVguide signal.

My TV guide will NOT refresh the channels and the Clock which is also refreshed and was 5min ahead of itself.. which means I cannot setup a recording mode!

their reason is this,My DVR is a DVD r/w device and is a no,no as far as they are concerned,as (Arggggg) he might PIRATE Movies as he can record DIGITAL .

Shee...All I want to do is record SCI-FI Battlestar G each week so I could watch it at work,I could do this with the old box,but not with the NEW one!
All they had to do is change the firmware so that an ID # would be embeded in the signal (movie,etc) so if one did spread it out,one would have someone knocking on the door real quick..Too simple!

WHAT happened to the words:"Keep it simple STUPID"

cheers Dennis
