I just purchased a plasma tv and subscribed to HD television. I recorded one of my favorite artist's performance on a talk show and wanted to transfer it to minidisc so I can listen to it when I work out. The problem is I get an error message (cannot copy) when trying to record to my minidisc. I have a HDMI connection from my SA8300HD DVR to the tv and an optical connection for audio from the DVR to my receiver (Sony STR-DE897) with the Neo6 cinema setting for surround system and an optical from the receiver to the minidisc recorder. Do I need something to convert the signal or just need to adjust a setting on the DVR or receiver? Any help would be appreciated.
