I have 2 TIVO boxes connected to wired Ethernet network. If I record a UHD programme on one box I can't watch it on the other. HD is fine. The message I get is...NOT Permitted. Due to policy set by the copyright holder, this recording cannot be played on this TIVO box.
There is no problem watching recordings on the box it was recorded on. This happens on both boxes.
This message appears even when I record The "WE'LL BE BACK message, when there is no broadcast playing on Channel 999.
Next to the ® symbol on the listing is a circle with diagonal line rather than triangle.
Thanks everyone for your help. I can half understand why individual companies e.g. BT Sports won't allow the UHD streaming, but when I try Channel 999 (Virgins own) and record the "Holding message" that appears when nothing is broadcasting it still gives me the copyright message.
If the theory is correct that companies are restricting watching UHD on a second box (and I can't understand why), what is going to happen when hopefully everything is in UHD? There will be no point Virgin advertising the "watch recordings on second box feature.
Speaking of which, I have not found any mention in Virgin's blurb that says you can't watch recorded UHD programmes on the other box.
I have spoken to 2 VM telephone operators and had a Service Engineer around to the house and non of them can solve the problem.
