Pioneer 650 and AV output

Recently I bought a Pioneer 650 and found it would play DivX (AVI) disks.
I've also got a second Pioneer (an older 720) and thought it would be useful to backup some of my AVI disks to it's hard drive.

I connected the yellow (composite video) and 2 audio feeds from the 650 line out to the 720's front Line in connectors.

I found it would copy everything *except* the AVI disks. As soon as they started playing the screen went blank.(By everything, I mean the disk nav screen and anything coming through the tuner, of off the HD.)

These AVI files are home movies made via my computer and burnt to a DVD-R disk so there's no commercial copy protection involved.

Why does the video shut down while recording these AVI disks? The same signal line works, e.g as a input source for the TV. I understand this is expected from a Macrovision encoded disk, but this is 'clean' composite video, isn't it?

I'm very curious why this happens and if there's a solution.
Thanks for any info,

Kirk.
