comcast error message trying to play vcr's

re: comcast DTA digital adaptor, 2305

am trying to tape on an older model Mitsubishi vcr, when I try to replay the tapes on the newer Phillips unit at another location get the message, "if you see this message the tv you're watching is not ready for comcast digital network enhancements.  to order call..."


comcast support said it is my vcr, but I have been able to play other tapes without that message.  has something been done to their system since the first of the year 2012?


can the digital adaptor go bad?

Double check your recording hookup. It sounds like the VCR is recording directly from the wall jack, instead of from the output jack on the DTA. It would be very odd for a DTA to be outputting a "not ready for digital" message.
