For some time I have successfully recorded programmes to a DVD that I originally recorded on my Sky+ box.

However, after successfully recording nights one and two of the programme, I have just tried to record the third night of 'Most Haunted - Village of the Damned' but shortly after starting my DVD recorder it displays the message 'Protected Content' and stops recording and even though I try to restart the recording the same thing happens.

I find this particularly strange as not only have I never had this problem with any other programme I have recorded in this way, but have I recorded the previous two day's episodes quite successfully and I have recorded other programmes since so it appears not to be a problem with the DVD Recorder.

I know that some films have this 'bug' to prevent illegal copying but I have never heard of this with a standard TV programme.

Anyone have any ideas please?
