      Cannot Record any programme downloaded from "catch up TV"

      I have been trying and failing to Record to a Hard Disc on a DVD Recorder,any programme which has been downloaded wirelessly from Catch Up TV.I follow the same procedure as I would do with a "live"programme shown by Sky..Namely Highlight the programme I wish to record right click on it to show the green copy button click on green copy button,select the programme start up the DVD recorder,the programme to record shows up then the screen goes blank and finally returns to planner.
      I rang Sky this morning to query this and was told that I cant put anything I download to my sky hard disc onto a DVDR disc for copywrite reasons?.Can anyone expain why, when I can record to DVDR anything which is Broadcast live say Our Girl BBC1..but cant record it from Catch up TV?Whats the difference?NB I can also watch it on an Android tablet via BBCiplayer! Has anyone else expperienced this? Beaurocracy gone mad! Michael

      Re: Cannot Record any programme downloaded from "catch up TV"

      Have you tried without using the copy button? Just start your DVD recording then start the program you want to watch. See if it records as it should. Its real time recording anyway so having to play it does not matter. Once it has started you can switch the TV off or simply watch what you want through the TV tuner.
