Until now, owners of DVD recorders are allowed to make a single DVD copy of the digital TV programs, due to the applied digital content protection restrictions. A digital TV program recorded on the hard-disk of a DVD recorder could be copied to DVD or another device just once. When the content is copied, the original data in the hard disk was deleted.
Copy controlled Terrestrial digital TV broadcasts currently expanding in Japan. "Dubbing 10" broadcasts are expected to start in Japan this month.
The following Panasonic recorders will support the new feature after a firmware upgrade:
