Hi there. I just pulled my old 40000 out of the closet and am messing around with it by connecting the WORKING 1394 port of a Motorola 3200 HD Cox Cable tuner into the JVC.
I can see a clear picture with sound on ALL HD channels.
However, when I record, all I get back is a black screen with no audio.
Is it likely A) my record head has a giant headclog, or B) Cox is encrypting all HD channels, even the broadcast, OTA signals.
I'd expect them to do that with HBO, etc, but thought that OTA channels were in the clear.
What cable company to do you use?
