Copy Protection Problem -- Who to Contact?
We have two Series 2 TiVos. One of them is lightly used for view -- mostly used for recording. The other one is used for both recording and viewing.
They are both on my Wireless LAN and have always been able to copy programs from one to the other.
Suddenly, PBS NewsHour and PBS NewsHour Weekend are showing up as copy protected and therefore cannot be transferred between TiVos. Other shows on PBS are not showing up as copy protected.
My video provider is CableVision. Do I contact them about why the copy protected flag is being set or is that under PBS's control?
I contacted CableVision and this was their response:
"Thank you for contacting Optimum today in regards to your Tivo recording and transferring the PBS channel. PBS is considered a PEG channel(Public, Education and Government Access channel) which are unable to be recorded with any of our devices. If you are able to record these channels with your Tivo device and able to transfer it up until a few days ago we recommend contacting Tivo to see if they upgraded the software to block the transferring of this content. I know we do not even allow these channels to be recorded so if you are still able to record the channel it is going through Tivo,"
Has anyone ever heard of a "PEG channel(Public, Education and Government Access channel)"?
