Re: Will Rogers flix?

I'm recording all 10 1/2 hours of the Will Rogers programming. Notice the substitution of Doubting Thomas (1935) for Handy Andy (1934). There is also the ninth Todd/Pitts short, The Old Bull (1932), programmed between A Connecticut Yankee (1931) and Doctor Bull (1933).

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

Talkietime- thanks for the response. Terminal certainly sounds like the diagnosis I had guessed at. And given the price of machines, I will probably ask Santa for one for Christmas. (I have another one downstairs so am not completely without.) Isn't it sad that it's cheaper to throw something in th...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

What did I do? I took that very same Panasonic-recorded DVD with the Greed promo and played it on a Sony DVP-NS57P DVD player where the composite output was connected to a Magnavox 2160A HDD/DVD Recorder. The Greed promo was dubbed to the 2160A hard drive where there was no copy protected icon foun...

Re: Erich von Stroheim is 125 Years Young Today!

In the run-up to showing the 1999 restoration of Greed, TCM showed the six minute long promo describing the restoration process. That promo is especially interesting in that Eric Von Stroheim's son, Josef Von Stroheim, participates in the promo.

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

Earlier posts in this and other forums have bemoaned copy protection difficulties with some Toshiba DVD Recorders. I’ve now experienced this Toshiba DVD Recorder copy protection pain for myself. This Toshiba D-R410 DVD Recorder of October 2008 manufacture is a Craig’s List purchase ($30) from a mont...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

TalkieTime, I dropped my combo VCR/DVD player. (It did not record DVDs, but a lot of my VHS were recorded on it.) THe DVD player won't play, so I'm guessing it's a loss, but you're so smart I just thought I'd ask. Birdy Birdy, With a VCR/DVD combo the laser assembly is perhaps the most delicate par...

Re: Trade for these?

I record from TCM quite a lot of early talkie movies through movies of the film noir era. That is the main content in my home-recorded time-shifted DVD archive. My DVD archive also has a very limited number of post 1960 movies. Once in a while there is a glitch or other complication and I miss somet...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

The other recorder is a Panasonic DVD/VHS recorder. That is a straight cable input. All the digital channels record fine. The Toshiba (I failed to mention earlier has an Upconvert feature.) I would have thought that all the digital channels would have not recorded. I'll have to look and see if ther...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

I know this is going way back but I have an unusual situation with my two recorders. One is a Toshiba that I have hooked through an HD box though the recorder itself is not an HD machine. It will not record TCM (or some other channels though not all) on a standard digital signal. It will record on ...

Re: TCM -- Anti-copying Code?

Dear TalkieTime, That's all way too complicated for me. Anything requiring a rewiring means a $150 visit from the home theater guy. ;) I'm even beginning to wonder if it IS the machine that's at fault. I really wish I could solve this problem of the wavy lines. I suggested the Magnavox 2160 ($159 a...
