    I have a season pass, never had problems recording The Challenge, but last night it didn't record because I wasn't Authorized. Here is a pic of the History detail page. Any idea why?

    Does it happen on all shows on that channel? If so, my wild guess is copy protection on that channel.

    The only instances I am aware of where copy protection level 3 has been seen it turned out to be a mistake on the part of the local broadcaster.

    Edit to add that I actually saw it once myself, not long after Time Warner started protecting everything.

    I've only seen it happen this one time. It's MTV, I record a lot of shows on there, never ran into this problem on any show on any channel.
