I did some digging today, and it looks like Cox has re-enabled the copy-protection bit for all non-local content. I was able to move recordings between my units on non-premium channels up until around August 20. Since then, everything on basic cable is flagged with a CCI 0x02, meaning not-copy. This includes basic cable like TCM and Hallmark. Is anyone else in OC seeing this?
I thought this was the point of DRM? To not move copy-right stuff to non-negotiated equipment. Could you move recordings before? Perhaps Tivo changed.
TCM has never been copy-protected before. This started a couple of weeks ago, to the best of my knowledge. I have had no problems with this channel up until September. Other channels that have not had DRM before, like MSNBC, are still transferable. This is specifically a change on TCM.
Who is copy-protecting TCM: Cox or TCM?
Cox is setting the copy-protect bit. It's done at their headend. Guess I'll be looking to cut the cord this year, because they've rendered my multi-room Tivo setup useless.

...so Cox "set the bit."
Yeah, I've heard this canned response before. You've set the copy-protect bit on everything that's not local. I'll be getting rid of your service as soon as I can.
