    I have a Sony DVD Player with a MOD chip that plays all regions and disables macrovision. I can easily copy DVD's to video. If I link my Panasonic DMR-E20 DVD Recorder the same way, it won't!! Theory would think it would. Anybody done/tried/resolved this ?

    say Juno, you say your Sony DVD player with a mod chip disables macrovision. Macrovision is the demon that blocks copying DVDs in the first place. Where did you get the chip and what is the model of the sony dvd player. I have a Panasonic DMR-E20 also. I am trying to copy DVD's also without success. Is there anything out there that will allow us to copy retail dvd's to dvr disc?

    The Sony DVD is a model 336. The MOD chip was installed when bought and can turn macrovision on or off, which I guess is the same as disable/enable. Theory would think this would work as the Sony is the source player. Any comments/help SUCCESSES, please reply.

    Hi!

    I just bought a DMR-e20 also, and I am having the same problem even recording from macrovision VHS TAPES!
    Funny thing is that I have a macrovision disabler filter (from SIMA) it works blocking type 1 macrovision, and I can copy macrovision enabled vhstapes to another, but NOT to the DMR.

    Anyway, I tried making a VHS copy passing the filter, and tried then to record the filtered copy to the DMR, STILL DOES NOT WORK.

    Every conection available I have tried with no luck, so, I am looking for someone selling the macrovision disabler chip for the DMR.

    It is logical, since macrovision is a white signal transmited to the invisible side of the screen and the filters and chips only stabilise some signals in order to get a clear one.
    (I am not triyng to give a long or accurate explanation, so you better search for macrovision info instead in order to understand why and how the DMR is detecting it)

    Anyway, please let me know if someone finds the chip :)

    Cheers!
