    My cable service is comcast and I have a digital box and I subscribe to HBO
    and Starz.
    I just got a Toshiba DVR620 VCR/DVD combo recorder and get the above message
    when I try to record any pay channel. I use DVD+RW disks.
    Error message: "this program is not recordable in +VR mode"
    The cause is "you are trying to record the copy-once program."
    Solution: "Insert the DVR-RW disc in VR mode
    (ver 1.1 or 1.2 compatable with CPRM)"
    What is CPRM and why can't I copy a "copy-once program, I am paying for them?

    Why can't I copy- once?

    Because...
    You can only record it to your cable companies DVR.
    There are programs for computers to strip DRM.
    Or, depending on your cable company...you might be able to record to a DVD-R that has a hard drive...or a hard/flash drive connected via USB.
    A "copy once" program can only be copied to a hard drive. Unless you have a DRM stripper.
