"Record block signal detected"

I tried to DVR the season premier of Wipeout! last night from the ABC affiliate carried by our cable company. My DVR would not record Wipout!, instead popping up a message that said "Record block signal detected."

What kind of sorcery is this? Why on earth would a TV network deny people the ability to actually watch their show, albeit not in real time? Do they not realize that denying people the ability to record their show will just push them into pirating the content on the Internet?
