Vista Media Center and Comcast

Threaded View


I have a Comcast DTA hooked up to a ViXS PureTV-U 48B0 TV tuner card.  I'm
using Vista Media Center version 6.1.1000.18302.  I change the channel using
the DTA and I can record shows.  I can see all channels except one channel
will display a blue screen with the following message:  "Copyright Prohibited
- The broadcaster prohibits this content from being copied. You can only play
this content on the same computer on which it was recorded."  I'm only
viewing the channel, I'm not recording any shows on this channel.  FYI, for
my area, this is happening on channel 67 (the AMC channel).  Any ideas why
this is happening?  Any ideas or assistance would be great.  Thanks.

Did this start when you first hooked up the DTA? Can you try a
neighboring zipcode? Please also post on thegreenbutton.com forums.

Hi Barb,
Yes, this started when I hooked up the DTA. I've tried using a different zip
code and the same thing happens.  Since Comcast is converting channels 30-99
to digital, I need the DTA to view these channels.  I will post this to the
Green Button forum as well.  Thanks!
