The first thing I would do is try it with a local channel. If it works okay, but none of the other channels do, then I would say that they have it encrypted. You would need a firewire device capable of recording it.
In the past, about 3 years ago, I could do the same and capture any of the HD channels I was subscribing to, on my local hard drive. Here lately, it will only allow me to get the local channels, because they have them copy protected, and you will need a firewire device to "handshake" with it. None of the firewire cards can do it, just the DVHS and the AVHDD units.
