I have been using a sony rdr-gx330 dvd recorder for the past few years to record shows from my comcast cable box's dvr (not sure of the exact model off the top of my head), and recently when i go to record something from the dvr, the sony tells me "this picture cannot be recorded". i am using red white and yellow av cables from the receiver to the dvd recorder line input rather than using coax.
the CONcast cable box is not an hd box, and with this current setup i am still able to record live shows onto the dvd recorder, the problem only appears when i try to record something from the dvr. It's rather frustrating because it used to work fine.
I am wondering if this has anything to do with the recent digital "enhancements" CONcast has been doing in my area, (I live in Denver) but more importantly am wondering if anyone knows of a way around this or some sort of solution. I have recently been mailed the "digital adapter" boxes for my two bedroom tv's which are hooked up directly to the coax coming out of the wall but I haven't activated those boxes yet and those two other tv's still work.
I am trying to accomplish this because my dvr memory fills up rather quickly, and putting some of those longer shows or sports games onto a dvdrw is a quick and easy way to avoid running out of memory.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
