    Hey All,

    I'm not sure if you've experience this yet or if it's just my problem.

    This week I started noticing that pay channels like HBO and Starz have that ghostbuster symbol next to them when I browse them from other TiVos on the network.

    I tried to transfer Real Time with Bill Maher yesterday and so this new message... "Transfers Prohibited by Copyright Holder." I thought maybe my HD Tivo was mistaken into thinking it was an HD recording, so I recorded the show again on a different HBO channel. Same deal.

    Then I noticed it today on Headcase from Starz.

    Has anyone else seen this happening? I don't remember ever having a problem before. I've been recording The Wire upstairs for a while now and transferring it downstairs.

    Any thoughts????

    Thanx!

    Shawn

    I have not had any experience with that, but my HD is brand new and I don't have any premium/pay stations. However, I have been wondering/thinking that with each new upgrade on the boxes, there might be more types of technology added (prob due to current/future legal issues) that would limit our options for downloading/copying.

    Maybe that might be another good reason to hold onto older tivo units.
