My question is related to one asked on page 806 of this forum. At least I think it is.. I will try to keep this short if I can. I have a dvd player,vcr,tv combination in that order. A non COPY PROTECTED dvd from any source of any content, will record just as easily as it woul if two vcrs were being used for coying one tape to another. HOWEVER, CP, discs WILL NOT record on the vcr. Unwatchable noise bars appear in record mode and sometimes in stand by mode. Is there a "black box", circuit, project, kit, any thing I can use to REMOVE the CP from the disc so the vcr can record it? I am useing my computer media player, monitor output to a VGA IN/ANALOG OUT converter, to my vcrs line in for recording. Sounds too complicated? It is, and not very practical. There must be an easy way to make my vcr and dvd player to work together as commen sense would dictate. I am getting a headache just reading some of the issues other members are haveing, let alone understand what most of it means. SIMPLE SOLUTIONS PLEASE!
