    Is it possible to dump the contents of a DVD to a VHS tape and if so how. I have tried connecring the DVD player to the VCR using a SCART cable, pressed record and then started the DVD but nothing happened apart from a blue screen when I replayed the tape.

    You are hollywood's worst nightmare! It's possible, you need a video stabiliser to get around macrovision protection. It's very naughty, you shouldn't do that, what you need is available at www.lektropacks.co.uk

    Surely a £30 DVD player would be less hassle???
    also set DVD to output composite via scart. Other question, How are you going to tape the DVD's withou moving VCR or DVD??? Unless you have another VCR down stairs. I really think a second DVD is the way to go loads under £50 and very nice ones under £100

    The composite bit makes no difference, it puts out composite to sync RGB! But Horny is right, now we know what you want, it's got to be the way to go, the video stabiliser is more expensive than the DVD player!

    Seems like I missed the obvious. DVD Players used to be much more expensive. What would you recommend for around £30.
