    If they were purchased tapes I would say it was macrovision protection. The fact that you taped them yourself I don't see how you would have picked up any copy protection of any kind. Possibly the tapes are degrading somewhat after 5 years or have flat spots from not being played much. Try several fast forwards and rewinds to see if it helps playback.

    jerry u dont think they send a signal through when they broadcast.....its not the tape..they are in good shape..could it be the dvd recorder? i have the philips 615r recorder..it says it doesnt record copyrighted material.....the dimness is very slight almost unnoticeable....but its there.....when i pause the recorder to edit advertisments and fast foward the tape ..the picture darkens.....its almost the same thing...maybe because of the picture quality of the aged tape it doesnt pick up the signal properly?
