I am trying to copy SVCD's and VCD's from my DVD player ( Philips 762) onto VHS. I have a scart lead that sorts the macro out but I am still unable to watch the picture after I have recorded it to VHS. The picture is jumpy, sounds comes and goes etc. Someone said its the way the disks were recorded and also mentioned 50 -60 hzs settings on my DVD player that wont allow it to be put on a tape. Is anyone able to give me any info please. Thanks

their is no macrovision on vcds m8

and the mac buster you have may only be for pal

some disc are ntsc, so their may come out in black&white

but if you are using a newish video (nicam) you should not have any problems with recording vcds

have a look at the back of your dvd player, & see if the switch is set to pal

I looked and there is no switch on the back. I have tried various recorders, none Nicam so I'll have to track one down.
