Windows 7: Win7 MCE refuses to record TV

Win7 MCE refuses to record TV

Hi all,

This is my first post on this forum and I hope that you guys can help me. I've searched all up and down the net and cannot find any information about this error/function.

I use the MCE as my primary TV watch device and it all works great with one exception.

Sometimes, not always, but sometimes the timers I set refuse to record and a sign appears saying: (roughly translated)

"The program could not be recorded because the rights holder has limited this transmission to view only"

and then it stops.

BUT if I catch the sign when it appears -> click Cancel -> and then manually start the recording -> it works just fine.

Is there a way around this incredibly annoying function?

Please help me!
