    I have a Humax 8000T which I am very happy with. I want to copy my recordings onto my Philips DVD recorder. When I try this it says (on my DVDR) programmes protected although I can watch live TV it will not record onto the DVD. Any suggestions please. John, Preston

    Hi Johneccles,

    This was a known problem where Humax had forgotten to turn off the Macrovision protection flag in the video signal from the 8000T. As soon as your dvd recorder sees the flag, it will refuse to copy. This was apparently turned off in a firmware update, perhaps PGTTF 1.00.09.

    Check your firmware - MENU, SYSTEM, STATUS

    The latest is: PGTTF 1.00.14
