    ok I have several DVRs with hard drives, that can burn DVDs. I can record anything to the hard drive, but somethings can't be burned to DVD. i.e. paychannels and now A&E as well as ESPN, I have already bought a filter, but it doesn't work! are there any real ones out there that do work? to take the code out?

    The ‘Filter” is most likely for analog MV [mostlyVHS] and do work to varying degree.
    They do not “filter” digital CP. Some claim too but I have yet to see it.

    With your DVR units [or any] recorders the problem is most likely running into a flag that will allow a recording to the HDD but not to the DVD or another one. Some programs do not even allow recording at all
    At this point I do not believe there are any units ‘legal’ that will change, block or remove this CP.

    The media people do not want a recording to a disk but may allow it to the HDD
    Why? So it isn't recorded and shared it with others

    HDD recorders are fairly much disappearing from the US market.

    You might take a look at this thread on this site and the post
