Just received my US spec JVC HM-DH30000U. Maybe Iâ€™m missing something but I canâ€™t get it to playback anything form Panasonic STB or playback tapes previously recorded from Panasonic/Dish combo. It will not even pass the information from the STB. When I record the information is passed. When I try to play back the recording it plays for a second and then stops the machine. Same drill with the previously recorded tapes. I am assuming this a copy protection issue. So much for a Panasonic alterative.
