    Hi, I'm copying old home videos to DVD-R using a dmre55, and with one of the tapes I get copy prohibited cannot record... this is a home video so there CANT be macrovision on it... anyone else had this problem and been able to fix it?
    I've tried smacking the tape of course but it hasnt helped ;-)

    Noise will be making the E55 think its copy protected. A Macrovision removing cable should work and is perfectly legal in this case.

    thanks... I looked on google for cables, can anyone recommend a reliable one? My concern is that these products might be good at removing genuine macrovision, but not 'noise' that is being mistaken for macrovision by the recorder...

    The fact that it can remove macrovision shouldn't prevent you from buying it, you are just backing up a home movie to DVD.

    sure, I understand... but as the tape doesnt actually have macrovision on it, will a product designed to remove macrovision also remove the noise that my panasonic is confusing with macrovision? Just dont dont want to shell out £25 for something that wont do the job...
