It has nothing to do with the hardware according to level 2 support at Austin Timewarner Cable. It is broadcast flags that FOX puts in it's shows to make you watch the program. (I am not sure if they get ratings from shows that are DVR'd)
He said they have been doing it for 2 years on Idol and now other shows. They have also received complaints from CBS shows recently. He said they have sent a formal complaint to FOX and have not recieved a response.
When I record American Idol and try to watch another program, my DVR changes channel back to AI to force me to watch (this caused the segements). 24 and Prison Break did the same thing 2 weeks ago when I tried to watch the NCAA Championship on CBS.
