Dear Hallmark Channel,
Imagine my dismay yesterday when I discovered that you have just decided to copy-protect apparently EVERYTHING on your TV channels. I was so happy that you started airing Cedar Cove again this week, but at 8 in the morning, I cannot watch live. I recorded it to DVD the first few days, then yesterday, my recorder gave me the "this program cannot be recorded" message. I figured, okay, Hallmark sells the show on DVD so they don't want anyone to record it. Then in the afternoon I tried to record a Christmas movie while I went to the pharmacy. Same message. Just for grins, I tested it last night on the Mystery/Movie channel, with an old Murder She Wrote (not an Original Hallmark Production) -- same freaking message. I tested several of your On Demand movies, and you have blocked Every. Single. One.
