Yes, I have just received this DRC8052N as a birthday gift, and currently have it hooked up to a Westinghouse 32" LCD HD-Ready TV (the old LTV-32w1) using an HDMI-DVI cable (from Philips). Now, the problem that I have with this, is that even though it records from the cable box, and plays back those DVDs just fine. However, I have it that, if I were to play any commercial, Hollywood DVD, the sound will play, but the screen will flicker and sometimes lose the signal, even at the 720p and 1080i signals. I'm quite sure that the Westinghouse DVI is HDCP compliant whilst having that HDMI-DVI connection. Was there any way to set region codes, or other types of programming for the DVD playing feature regarding commercial DVDs at all? Don't tell me that RCA's trying to pull another Sony on me.
