Default problem dvd

I have Pioneer VHS Recorder and a lot of Disney Videos. I want to transfer them to DVD but unfortunatly I can't do it as my recorder says "Copyrighted Material" What can I do against it?

Okay...

This is the third person, with a single post, who has recently posted in the HD-DVD Bargains forum with a question about copying VHS to DVD. I'm starting to wonder what's going on. Does not appear to be spam...

Сommercial VHS tape has macrovision which is a form of copy protection. You need a DVD recorder that removes Macrovision or can be hacked to remove Macrovision, but the market for them is pretty small since so few people have VHS tapes anymore.You will need a DVD Recorder, and, Grex video stabilizer(macrovision remover) to transfer your VHS media to DVD.

Yeah, you're right. Every single time someone asks, someone "else" with a low post count recommends Grex.

You will need a DVD Recorder, and, Grex to transfer your VHS media to DVD.The copy protection I speak of is the macrovision that is causing you not to be able to get good copies of the VCR tapes.I bought a GREX (macrovision remover) for the same purpose www xdimax.com/grex/grex.htmlIt works great.

Hi.
Thanks a lot for your suggestion about Grex.
I ordered a Grex unit from XDIMAX a while back. I've now had it for
almost a week or two. It has seen a fair amount of use so far, and I
am ecstatic with the results!
I've recorded via the composite and S-Video connections. The video
sources come either from my cable TV (Comcast) or from Netflix streams
via my WiFi enabled Blu-Ray players.
The unit has performed flawlessly and although I haven't tried hard to
do so, upon casual viewing I have not been able to notice any sort of
degradation of the signal (which I was, admittedly a bit afraid of).
Thanks so much
