Can I record dTV content?

As it turns out, dTV content cannot be recorded.

You cannot record dTV content such as dTV unlimited viewing and live streaming, and even if you use a recorder or other device, the screen will go black.

My recording screen has gone black! Why?

HDCP is the cause.

HDCP stands for " High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection," which in Japanese is a copyright protection technology that aims to "prevent unauthorized copying of digital content.

In short, it is a technology that prevents the copying of digital audio and video content that is connected to an HDCP connection. Connection types include DisplayPort (DP), Digital Visual Interface (DVI), High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), Gigabit Video Interface (GVIF), and Unified Display Interface (UDI), and other less popular or now obsolete protocols.

To put it more simply.

HDCP-enabled services such as dTV can only be played on HDCP-enabled terminals; HDCP-connected videos cannot be recorded."

You cannot record videos that are connected with HDCP.
