Can't record shows on local Fox affiliate

Configuration: Windows 7 Media Center

Verizon FiOS Baltimore County {edited for privacy}

Since at least January* I have been unable to record any show on my local Fox affiliate, Fox 45 (channel 510). Recordings fail to start with errors "Recording of this content is prohibited by the content provider." It doesn't matter if it is a scheduled recording or a manually initiated recording. Nor does it matter what I attempt to record (local news, any prime time show, day time show, etc.).

I called into Verizon today and had them validate that my cablecard was authorized. That didn't resolve the issue.

Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone else out there unable to record Fox 45 shows?

* I noticed when X-Files began, it may have started earlier but with no new shows in December, it's hard to say exactly.

Looks like my tuner needed a firmware update. Unfortunately, for some reason Ceton didn't advertise this firmware as available in their diagnostics app. This firmware appears to resolve the issue as I was just able to record a show - http://www.thegreenbutton.tv/forums/viewtopic.php?f=68&t=8352
