Re: recording tv show help

I have a DR430KU that has the same UNACCEPTABLE trouble. It is not just AMC. I record events on ESPN & specials on national channels (ABC, CBS, FOX, & NBC). Some shows will record with no problems. Other shows complain about the video mode +V. I think this has to do with the CPRM restrictions. You have to record "copy-once only" coded programs on a DVD-RW formatted in VR mode. NONE of my other 10 DVD burners have had this unacceptable & annoying restriction in them. I will never buy another recorder that has this "feature". Is there no way to turn this off?
