Edit: I meant "Copy once" and not Copy None but seems I cannot edit the title.
I recently decided to take the plunge into the cablecard world and now that the installation nightmare is over (TWC sent me a single stream cable card 3times in a row, a bad tuning adapter, etc) I have now run into another problem:
It seems TWC sets almost *everything* to copy once. So if I record a tv show (say Restaurant: Impossible in HD on foodnetwork) on my main computer (with 4TB free HD space) I cannot watch it on any other computers in my home. It is limited to the computer it recorded on or xbox media extenders.
Is there a solution to this? I've googled this and pretty much what I've found is "NO". I'm willing to re-encode the recorded .wtv but seems that might be illegal and/or impossible. I've looked into making the other computers (bedroom, htpc) act as "extenders" but that seems a no go too. I've tried researching recording software other than wmc but that seems moot as this "copy none" bit is set by timewarner cable, not wmc.
All I want to do is watch recorded stuff on the other computers in my home. Is that not possible at all using time warner & a cablecard?
Thanks in advance AVS!
