Default Recording DVD movies off my PS2?

sponsored links

I have done the mod to my PS2 to get around the green screen effect. I was under the impression the RGB output had no protection on it? However, when I now try and record a DVD movie, all i get is a blank screen...nothing...not even a distorted picture. Can anyone help. The pciture is fine when just viewed on my T.V.

The ps2 is fitted with the macrovision chip. That's the chip that scrambles the picture or blanks it out when you try to record the picture. I don't think there's any way round this m8 as Sony don't promote piracy. That's one of the main reasons that they won't play VCD's either unlike the add on for the PS1.

Naw, just get a box that strips the macrovision off.....about $29.00 or so. Also connects to vcrs, etc.
