    Hi peeps!
    I have recently purchased the above Hard disk / DVd recorder with the intention of archiving my vast collection of ancient VHS cassettes for several reasons. Firstly to save space and secondly to 'save' some of the older ones that are noticeably deteriorating. Thirdly because a few are still not on DVD yet so they are the only option available. Needless to say the 'clever' Panasonic knows you are trying to record a copyprotected disk when it is connected via AV2 (scart) or AV4 video connection. Is there a way I can 'do mu dream' or has it been dashed on the rocks? :thumbsup:

    Hi Tricky,

    Are these tapes pre-recorded ?? Well sounds like the obvious Macrovision problem, you need to buy a box that strips out the Macrovision code.

    Otherwise know as a (TBC) Time Base Corrector, you can get cheapy boxes starting for around £50-60 up to £1000's for the Pro kit.

    Wouldn't it be easier to get the material on DVD, if it's available ??

    Cheers
