OK Guys! Anyone else got one? If you have you can email me.
Fellow 7000 owner here.
Have you tried copying a R2 DVD to a Blank Dvd yet? I tried yesterday for the first-time, a window kept opening on my tv Screen saying "Unable to Record due to Copy Protection". Yet, I am able to Copy the same Dvd to Video Tape (VCR). I'm wondering whats the Difference? Surely I'm "set-up" Correct?
ORRRR! anyone else able to 'SHINE' a little light on this matter?
Only had the DVR on Thurs. Havent had much time to play with yet.
It is copy protection, with the DVD Recorder recognising a method of copy protection that the analogue video recorder doesn't. All DVD Recorders will re-act in the same way.
Not sure of a way around it. Someone else may have some suggestions.
They are great pieces of kit though.
I Agree Phil, really happy. Wish they came in BLACK though,to go with the rest of my Gear. Will have more time to play after this week. Really "Cheased Off" because I thought the DVR would record off Dvd Discs, don't do much with Video Camera Side of things. Had mine from avland really pleased as I waited for the Price to Drop below £1000.
sounds like your DVD player has macrovision disabled but NOT CGMS.
Sorry but what is CGMS? Its definately Macrovision Disabled the Pioneer737.
It stands for something like "Copy Generation Management System" or something similar!
A signal is embedded in one of the scan lines in the picture. It can be set to allow you to not copy, or make one copy only, with that copy being set not to allow you to make anymore.
Not sure it can be disabled easily, but someone else should have some information hopefully for you.
www.dvdplusrw.org will tell you how. click on forums.
