I, like az886502, am in Pittsburgh in the 15213 zip code.
I got the 6200 hooked up to my HTPC via 1394 and installed CapDVHS without a problem.
It records and displays data for all non-digital channels (1-99) as far as I can tell.
It records and displays NO data for ALL of my HD channels. INHD and INHD2, ESPN-HD, Showtime-HD, HBO-HD, even local networks THAT ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE COPY PROTECTED don't work. For WTAE (ABC - 780), KDKA (CBS - 782), WQED (PBS - 790), and all the other HD channels, whether I set it to record in .ts or .mpeg, i get files that are NOT zero bytes, but actually correct-sized files, that DO NOT play back. It brings up an error dialog that says it does not have recognizeable content.
When I record from analog channels, I get perfect playback in Elecard.
Is this 5C? Is this because of Comcast, or the local broadcasters?
Isn't it illegal (read: not in compliance with FCC regulations) for them to activate 5C on their local OTA channels?
I'd like someone's opinion on this before I go ahead and start bothering the Comcast VP of Regional Affairs for Pittsburgh about this. If it IS out of compliance, I could tell him that and it might actually get results. Do I have any real options at my disposal here?
