I'm looking around for a better DVD recorder that will allow you to record shows off a digital cable stb without giving you any hassle. I currently have a Samsung DVD-R135, and no matter what the channel or the show is, if I try recording a TV show, the message "Cannot record copy-protected movie" comes on the screen. I mean, jeez, even on a local broadcast station on my cable box it won't record it, whether it's a movie, a 30-minute show, or whatever. I mean, jeez, how picky is that? It won't record ANYTHING off my STB. This is hooked up via coax, btw. Do you think I made a wrong choice of DVD recorder here? Which brand and/or model do you think would work best with a digital cable box? Please make sure that it can do HDMI out to my HDTV as well, thanks.
