Well, as you have said, this is almost certainly not coming from HBO, but your specific cable company. If Charter Communications is deliberately inserting the copy never flag in their HBO feed, they will be unlikely to help you defeat that restriction. Your best bet is one of the various products mentioned by suplex. I have recorded movies from HBO and Cinemax to my DirecTivo, and then to my EH50 many, many times with no problems.
I suppose it couldn't hurt to ask HBO if your cable company is authorized to set broadcast flags for them that other sources are not setting. Hey, it could work, and I don't see how it could make the situation worse.
Evil is charming and beautiful. It makes you doubt yourself. It asks for one small compromise after another until it whittles you down, and it functions best when no one believes in it.-JOA
