Your not using the correct record button
You do not use the directTV record button, but just the record button on the remote.
This will then allow you to record.
Let me know how you go please

i have put a new Memorex DVD RW dvd disk
the result was a request to format the disk. I formated the disc and pushed a "Rec" button. response: " copying of this material is not allowed. cannot record!. I repewated with a number of identical discs with same result
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
yes, thats because your recording from a protected source, eg: Sky, this you cannot get around, you only can record from Free to Air
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
am recording from BBC1. I don't have sky. I only have "free" channels
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
If it says copying of this material is not allowed then you are trying to record something that is protected (illegal to be copied) if your getting this messsge, the content you are trying to record cannot be recorded sorry.
Its why the station is sending the device this message.

does that mean that I canoont record anything from the TV on this machine?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
when it gives this message then no sorry, as its protected content.
