Since I got my SV2000 (WALMART online) (FUNAI?),I have had a "Few" copyright code messages on screen.If I try a commercial DVD to DVD copy ,it stops right away,and reads: Copyright protected! BUT a few of my "older VHS tapes,I' copied from a few years ago to VHS ,also, get that same message,but continues to record!NO erasures or anything! This shows up on a few commercial VHS tapes ,but others,NOT!Doesn't seem to matter what year either.I've tried "newer,97 or so,tapes,commecial copies,Record fine!Older copy.I made; 99 or so ,Message pops up randomly,BUT ,still records! Apparently if it's NOT going to duplicate a VHS or DVD,it says on startup!I still get most of my "Classics" collection,on DVD.Am just curious what this is doing and why? I also heard from someone that to copy a DVD you need to take a Felt Marker around the edge? I don't want to just make copies of these "Newer" movies,just what I paid for on Cable or Satellite!Personal use too!Hope I live long enough ,to watch that "Classic Rerun" of my favorites,too numerous to mention here!And have a Excellent DVD copy ,I made!My collection,I paid once for! "LIVE FREE ,OR DIE" ,The "OLD GUY":burninmad!
