    Your probally not going to research it. There are only a few dvd/vcr combo unit that will copy back and forth. The lock is built into you combo unit.

    Good Luck

    Copy protection to VHS is handled by Macrovision. Most combos implement CGMS/A on the analog output which blocks copying from any VCR that recognizes it. You can often use an older, separate VCR to copy from your combo.

    If you get light/dark pictures and tearing at the top of the picture on the VHS tape, you can get a converter that will remove that. Some of them also remove the CGMS/A bits. Search on "copy guard remover" to find some.

    Good luck

    Also, in Decrypter, make sure the check box "remove Macrovision protection" is ticked under Settings/general when you make your DVD backup. This will only work if you do your copying with Decrypter, not if you use it only as a burn engine.
