"You cannot record copy protected movie"
HDMI, HDCP, that Broadcast Flag and more thwart and stop such features. While I would make a bet it would work on PAL or NTSC (region dependent) signals you find folk that want this to work in HD.
I only just bought this product. It supports Timeshift (it is emblazoned all over the box and it is in the manual). However, it won't work. I get the "You cannot use this operation or function" icon on the TV screen. I have written to Samsung but, so far, no reply.
It is attached to a satellite decoder and I have already had to change a setting on that box (Widescreen signalling) in order to get the Samsung machine to record at all (without changing that setting, I got a "You cannot record copy protected movie" message).
This seemed a bit obscure to me (although, technically, I wouldn't have a clue) and am wondering if there is some other setting that is equally obscure that is causing Timeshift not to work.
I understand that Timeshift may use EPG and the satellite decoder does provide that.
Also, I heard of another problem where the decoder date/time didn't match the recorder date/time by a substantial amount but that isn't the case.
It may not be related but the "freeze" function on the attached TV (with continuing audio signal, at least) works fine.
Anyone have any ideas?
