Vista Users Blocked From NBC Shows

May 14, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Windows Vista Media Center users found themselves unable to record NBC’s “American Gladiators” and “Medium” on Monday night, CNET.com reports. An error message read, “Restrictions set by the broadcaster and/or originator prohibit recording of this program,” hinting that the block may be caused by DRM restrictions aimed at preventing illegal consumption, the Web site says. Representatives from the network and Microsoft said they would need time to look into the block, the Web site notes. Most of those who posted complaints online were Vista users recording digital cable with ATI cablecard tuners.
