Can the home dvd recorders copy movies (store bought movies)?
Probably not yet.
No they are not as advanced as pc's. They will not remove the encyption off the dvd. Nor will they shrink the dvd to fit from a dvd-9 to a dvd-5. Use a pc.
No they wont,at least mine wont.It wont copy "store bought" vhs either.
They will with a video stabilizer. I user DVD RedPro. There are less expensive ones. I learned after already purchased.
Its true they won't strip the CSS/Macro, but with a good stabilizer they are an effective backup tool. You obviously don't get the same menus, but they do make one (menu). I've found that a 3hr+ movie sometimes looks better recorded on LP speed than it does Shrunk under 50%. The VHS is quite easier than a PC.
(My 1st post!!)
ohhh but they will if you get a Macrovision decoder box!! Do a google and you will be surprised.
here is a couple links
These work just like the old VCR ones.. You put the Video cable into the box and run a Video cable out to your recorder.. Simple and it works ;-)
I knew about the clarifiers,I just didnt know if they worked well or not.You can find them on e-bay for dirt cheap.
Thanks for the tip,BB,and bud
