Very strange thing I just need to be explained. I connected my Sony GX300 up to my old video just to copy home movies etc. and then my father in law wanted me to convert his bought videos to DVD so that he can bin his VHS player. After reading all about Macrovision on copyrighted VHS tapes, I went and bought a Macrovision remover scart lead from one of the web sites. Just thought I would try out with the existing lead first and it copies ok and have since copied about 6 other videos all with no problems. Does it work because I am not using a proper scart input into the GX300 (scart at video end and red,white and yellow plugs alone at DVD recorder end). Hope this makes sense and I was just wondering why it works.
