Cablevision subscribers experienced "bug" in software that only affects subscribers who attempt to record programming through the IEEE 1394 interface, a high-speed digital connection known as Firewire or iLink found on high-end digital televisions manufactured by Mitsubishi, RCA and Hitachi, certain set-top boxes and DVHS recorders.

The bigger issue here as I see it is that the techology exists to render all recorders that use Firewire to connect to receivers can be restricted to not allow recording. How would a user use D-VHS to record a HDTV movie off of Sat/Cable if copy protection was required.

I'm sure D-VHS isn't alone in this problem, but copy protection is a killer for the format if you can't record HDTV movies.
