New OKC DRM Copy Protection on Local Stations with Digital Transition
Why are local stations now DRM protected in the Oklahoma City market after the digital transition a couple of days ago? I am a FlexWatch (locals + HBO/Starz only) buyer using a cablecard for local content delivered through HRHomeRun Prime to my AppleTV. Prior to the digital transition I had zero issues. Now all channels, including locals are copy protected, so I can no longer use my cablecard +hdhomerun + appletv setup.
Is this an oversight? It would seem local stations (ABC, NBC, etc.) should still be DRM, copy protection free. For some reason, KOCB HD (711) is not DRM protected and KOCB SD (11) is, so it would seem to indicate that its a simple manual configuration and easily correctable by Cox. Many other posters in other markets indicate that their locals are also copy freely even after a digital transition. Can you review the settings?
