    Are Pay-Per-View normally copy protected?
    I got the WWE Royal Rumble for my son last weekend & tried to put on video tape for him but it appeared to be protected.
    If so is it the same with the S-Video output?

    Cheers, Paul

    In the past I've recorded SBO and Setanta events to a VCR with no problems, perhaps the WWE specify macrovision protection as part of the broadcast contract.
    I don't know too much about macrovision but I would expect it to be present in all the video outputs otherwise it would be rather pointless.
