See I don't agree, Tell me or show me anything that proves Directv is forced to allow recording on premium channels.

If that was the case then all the providers would be forced to hand over DVRs in order to sell you a premium channel.

That is not at all the case.


I never said they were forced to do so. I said that if they placed limitations on it then the content owner would have a say in it. The same way they have a say in package and, in some cases, lineup placement.

Still waiting for evidence of DirecTV restricting recording abilities for sporting events. Your claim that you can watch a channel, but not record it is laughable.

Yep, and I bet HBO, wouldn't want non paying subscribers recording their content.

Obviously the previews work as HBO wants them to because they keep offering them. Your claims are ridiculous and backed up by very little logic.

Haven't tried it , but again its on MY53 at the same time on occation. So i just record it there.

It seems to only happen when they Mirror the Yankees games that are on YES to MY53 Network. It doesn't happen every game, but I can recall 3 last year.

All the message says something like, "you can not record this event"


Here this is my claim, As I already stated, again when Baseball season starts I'll let you know if it bothers you that bad.:lol:

OK I see your point, but say everyone and their mother stood in front of your free cookie rack and did nothing but eat your cookies over and over for 2 days straight.

Thats why they give a sample, Not the Whole Bag!;)


The "sample" they are giving is the free preview weekend. You just proved our point with that statement...thanks.

So you've already stated. Not sold on it , since I can't record PPV, or Sonictap music, I'm viewing them now.
If directv wants they can limit your recording, You seem to think they can't.

Hey your welcome. :)


Other than PPV Movies (which I don't use, but I can record UFC PPV) and the music channels...you can record your package channels, your RSN's when they are not blacked out, and your premiums. Your claims that you can view your RSN's but not record them is false. I have no idea why you have chosen to claim this.

No I didn't claim that.

YES 3 times last year and SNY twice.

Again only when the games are Mirrored on MY53.
