I've copied some old TV shows from my VCR to my new DVD recorder (Panasonic DMR-ES15). I then tried to make a copy from the new disc to another disc but I was prevented because of copyrighted protection. Although I was still able to copy the new disc back to a VHS tape with no problem. I'm using Memorex DVD -R and DVD +RW discs. Also, when I made a new copy to a VHS tape I then had a copyrighted protection as well to prevent me from putting that on disc. I was reading where some channels like HBO won't allow you to make copies but these are shows from the old WB network and they are about 6 or 7 years old. Any suggestions on how to make copies? I don't have a DVD burner on my computer. Just a stand alone DVD recorder.
