I have just purchased this DVD because I needed a recorder with HDMI and upscaling. There seems to be a Dubbing restriction if you want copy a DVD to HDD, even if the DVD is not protected. Acording to the manual you are able to carry out this function providing the disc is NOT protected, yet it still doesn't work. The menu function for this facility is on the player but is is greyed out and not available. Does anyone know a way around this or is there a code or software upgrade that will allow this function to be accessable.
