View Full Version : DVD to VHS tape

Jan 30, 2002, 01:47 PM
Is there anyway that I can make a video tape backup of a DVD (for my basement) without it distorting on the video side ? This is really bugging me, I can't for the life of me understand why I can not do this. Thanks in advance.....:confused:

The problem is macrovision. You need a system that will defeat it. You can either

A) get a dvd player or mod your current one if possible to defeat macrovision. You can go to *********** and find your player on the list to see if it can be modded.

B) get a macrovision defeater (do a search on the net, I'm sure you cna find one)

C) get a vcr that doesn't do anything with macrovision. I don't know where you can find that out, but you can probably do a search online for it I'm sure.
