      Component output from Thomson box

      Hi,

      I have a Thompson HD box with component outputs. I have connected it to the Hauppauge HD-PVR and this allows me to view and record 1080i broadcasts to my PC. However... when I try to record programmes from the Sky HD planner (ie programmes that have been recorded onto the Sky HD hard drive), the component output appears to be dropped. Is this some form of copy protection... and is there any way around it? It just seems strange that I can record HD to my PC but can't record stuff I recorded previously on the Sky HD box!

      Any help gratefully received

      Recording to HDD is not the same as copying. Programmes covered by copyright are protected against copying. I don't know if this affects component output but it wouldn't surprise me. It certainly applies to HDMI output.

      Thanks - I thought it was some copy protection, but have found a way around it. I think it might be a limitation of the HD PVR, getting confused by changes in output resolution.

      Thanks for taking the time to reply.
