Gtrman, Can you help me with my questions? I'm writing from Brazil. During the trip that i did (USA) in the beggining of this year, a purchased one DVDR04-Ilo. I read the instructions and started using the equipment as a VCR (recording from TV channels and making some copies of some originals dvd's). But now , some problems appears. When i try to record some programs from TV, sometimes one message appears on the screen " Protected content". Does anybody knows what's happening? Is it necessary to download a new version of a firmware? Is it easy? (I'm not so good with computer programs) There's other problem that appears when i make some DVD copies (bothering sound during the reproduction). I would like to insert the option of 3 hours. Does anybody recommend me? What i have to do ? (Step by step) So the last question is: " Is it possible to copy one original DVD movie, including the options of the menu? (Of course using this equipment) Thanks a lot. Note. Sorry for my poor english and knowledge in this area.
