can't record local channels with vcr

My equipment was just updated to HD and now I cannot record programs with my VCR. I get the message that I am trying to record protected material. The channel that I am trying to record is a local channel and is not protected.I don't want to pay for a DVR when I don't need one. I can use my VCR to time shift.

Is this the new policy with Dish?

What is the model of DISH receiver you currently have? If you are on an Input for the HD, do you have the VCR set to that Input?
