    I think you are misreading the situation. The channel being protected simply means that it is encrypted and you need a CableCARD to authorize access and decrypt it. Most if not all cable systems encrypt premium channels. Copy protection is a separate issue. CableCARD devices are required to honor copy protection. It's just that FIOS chooses not to copy protect any of the material.

    The thing is as I mentioned, Verizon does honor copy protection with certain channels when using the Motorola box. However, these same channels turned from cci 0x02 to 0x00 when I used the cablecard and that's what I was getting at. Or am I still misunderstanding something?

    Sounds like another reason added to the many other reasons not to use the FiOS DVR.

    This is a problem with the Motorola box. I assure you that if the CC1 byte were set in what gets transmitted to the TiVo, it would be honored. Just ask any TiVo owner on TWC.
