I have a DVR, but get the copy protected message. I fully understand, and respect, the protection laws and making illeagel copies, but this is not the case, i just want to protect my big library.Is there any inexpensive device I can to apply to the decision of this problem?

All devices in the US market are made to honor copy protection. You'll have to reach over into some other markets to find such but we can't discuss defeating DRM or copy protection here. See the forum policies and consider the host is "CBS".

I can recommend a company with a solution. Here is the site I have found: http://xdimax.com/grex/grex.html
They have a device called Grex video stabilizer. I heard that with Grex help it will be
possible to remove protection from DVD and TV channels and thus be able to download protected video to DVD.
