Yeah, I am a newbie and I did read a ton of posts already... But I have to ask a stupid question... What can I do to by-pass the copyright protection on my Chicago Bulls VHS Championship tapes... what options do I have... The NBA will not release the Bulls videos on DVD, so I want to backup the VHS tapes to my PC. I tried to copy using my Sony Mini-DV TRV38 but the "copyright error" appeared on the screen. If I buy an All-In-Wonder can I stream directly to the PC? Or what if I use the camcorder as a by-pass to the PC using fire-wire. I would just hate to lose these tapes to time... can I by-pass the protection with either pass-through using IEEE port/cable or a new video card?
