I desparately want to convert all my daughter's videos to DVD using the above recorder, to save space. The unit won't allow it, due to the videos being protected (Marcovision I presume). I've read the annoucement about discussing such things here, and all it says don't provide links to such products that remove protection, so I'm guessing it's ok to ask about it without actually linking to any product site. Anyway I want to buy a cable that's labelled Macro/CGSM Scart/Copy Protection Remover - it's basically a SCART cable that I believe will allow me to do what I want. Any thoughts on a) will this cable work and b) if not, any other ways of achieving this? Like I said, I have no interest in piracy as such, I only want to convert videos I own, and I'll be keeping the originals anyway. Thanks, and apologies if I shouldn't be posting this.
