How do I disable Macrovision when copying from VHS to DVD using a DVD recorder (not a burner)? I have a huge collection of VHS tapes that I want to convert to DVD, so yesterday I bought a Pioneer DVR-220 DVD recorder at Walmart because I've read lots of posts that say that Pioneer DVD players and recorders are the best or at least "one of the best". So then as soon as I got home from Walmart yesterday, I hooked up the DVD recorder so that the input of the DVD recorder is connected to the output of my VCR (using composite cables) and the output of the DVD recorder is connected to the input of the TV (also using composite cables). But now I'm very disappointed because every time I try to copy one of my VHS tapes to DVD, my DVD recorder refuses to do it because the VHS tape has Macrovision copy protection! Well, some of my videotapes are from video that I took myself with my camcorder, and I'm sure that I could copy those to DVD's, but 90% of my VHS tapes are commercial videotapes that I bought from Blockbusters or from E-bay. Now I'm pissed off that I spent $248 for a DVD recorder that can only copy personal videotapes or record TV shows off the air! So my question is: Is there any way of hacking my Pioneer DVD recorder so that it can copy Macrovision-protected VHS tapes? Or if it would be too difficult to hack my DVD recorder, then I'll get a refund for it, so then I'd like to know which brands of DVD recorders would copy commercial VHS tapes regardless of whether or not the videotapes are Macrovision-protected.
