Windows 7: Cant Record specific channel?

08 May 2010   #11


The only thing I can think is that the channel itself is broadcasting in a way to disallow recording? Highly unlikely as it is a local area channel, but you never know....

Can channels do that? Disallow recording?

yup - HDTV (I am using DirecTV HD as an example) can prevent MC from being able to record channels.

The specific channel NY1 is provided by Time Warner Cable. It is a news channel and it is one of their basic channels. Time Warner Cable in NY requires a converter box however if you do not use a box you get their very basic channels including the normal broadcast channels - i.e FOX, NBC, CBS etc plus CSPAN and NY1. So this is a channel being pumped in to the analog connection of my tuner card direct from the cable wire.

I should note that I remapped this channel from 10 to 1. Because when you do not use a cable box NY1 comes in on 10 instead of 1. I am now suspecting this might be the issue.

As a side note: I got to watch the show I wanted to record on their website.
