I can't record certain programs with my Motorola 6208 DVR. I have Comcast.
I am trying to record the bodybuilding programs, but I am unable to access
the record feature on the 6208. This is the only problem with any
programming on INHD.

Don't worry- i have the same issue. Try to set the recorder to program
on Thursay. They showed a Tuesday listing but that did not work.

It might be an "unrecordable channel". I came across that on my SA8000HD
today in the INHD channels.

Thanks. It appears that we can record most programming on both INHD
channels, however, my attempts to record the 'ladies' presentations of
bodybuilders is blocked. Can record men 'only' bodybuilders, but can't
record the women when they are on the program. I was interested in
recording the women bodybuilders.

One of the features of the HDMI port is copy protection. HDCP stands for
"High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection" (HDCP). It is meant to
prevent you from copying content you are not "allowed" to copy.
Generally HDMI connectors all use HDCP. They don't technically "have
to", but it would be pretty silly for Cable Companies not to use an HDMI
connector without it having HDCP. DVI connections on the other hand, may
or may not have HDCP.

thanks for pointing that out. I should have suspected that.
