Maybe the new DCT itself is injecting it on the wrong channels?
Was trying to help a family friend with recording some stuff on VHS.
Ever since getting a new DCT her cable channels recorded fine, but local channels had extremely bad picture quality and constantly changing brightness - but only the VCR was seeing it like that. When playing directly on the TV, all channels looked fine.
Some googling on my end suggests maybe this is "macrovision" copy protection that screws with the VCR's gain adjustment - but that should be illegal to put on local channels, right?
Mysterious login issues on a server at work (two different admin portals tied to the same embedded ldap, one of them suddenly refusing all logins) has been just as mysteriously fixed.
Issue started after an entirely unrelated password change on Thursday. Issue was fixed by restoring to a backup from *after* we made the change.
