Copying Non-Copy Protected NTSC discs to the RDXS32 hard drive?


Active Member
I tried copying a non copy protected NTSC disc to the hard drive yesterday using Line U dubbing and while the colour seemed to be fine the recording played back with the recording kinda like it was squashed to 2.50+:1 ratio with three of these slices on the screen. It wasn't rolling etc it was 3 distinct squashed versions of the output, one under the other.

Can NTSC material not be copied to the HDD or is there some other method other than Line U dubbing of doing this?

I might give that a try Jethro, I just figured that macrovision was a function of the player output rather then the disc(albeit non-copyprotected)


As pointed out above Toshiba recorders do not record NTSC.
Panasonic will record NTSC.
Pioneer and Philips will record both NTSC and PAL 60
