macrovision on a vcd?!
Is it possible to have this?! I tried to put my black hawk down ona tape and got what looks like the results of macrovision. This is the widescreen screener version of the film. Its wierd cos my Vanilla sky screener works the same! Cheers for any help!

I don't think it's macrovision you're seeing.
Most likely, the format of the VCD is not the same as your television. Does it show in black and white.

It could be the dvd player which you have the cd in causing the macrovision - i believe some players put it on all output, not just protected dvds.

no m8 cos i have just put vanilla sky on Video 2! It is something special with Black hawk down i am sure! Anyone else tried it? It is not my TV or DVD player and it is in full colour. Cheers for the help kids ;)

I have the same problem with black hawk down ,I don't think it's macro tho as I have a power scart lead that removes macro yet doesn't work with this movie ! Anyone shed any light on this subject ?
