Question about Sharp DV-NC80 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

VCR copyright Hi, I have bought a dvd-vcr combi to burn my personal VCRs to dvd's, but it does not let me because of the copyright protection. I believe this is really stupid not to allow to copy my own videos. Is there any way around this? best wishes, lev

    it is actually the hollywood videos I bought for my own money,
    which are mine and I should be able to do anything with them including burning! However, I am not able to copy them - for my own use - to another media. Which is, what is the word?

    thanks, not yet, but I'll try when I get home. However, after reading around I realised that it may not be able to help as the copyright protection is an additional signal which goes together with the video signal (Macrovision copyright protection), so it is not so easy to remove. So, it looks like the problem is not that simple....

    I've found this discussion helpful:

    May be you know all this? There is also a box sold in the UK that does the trick, but it is about 40-50 pounds:

    But, thanks, I'll try your tip later today

On the side that faces out of the tape that sticks out of the vcr there should be a square indent. This makes the tape read only and tells the player that it is copyrighted. If you were to cover it with a piece of tape it should work. Just make sure the tape is on really good so that it doesn't fall off into your machine. I'm assuming they are your personal family videos that you accidentally broke the tab off of and not actual hollywood videos that you would get into trouble for copying.

I would like to know how to connect a dvd player through my samsung vcr the inputs in the back i am not familiar with there are two sets of yellow white and red connections with one side for output and...


Connect from dvd OUT to vcr IN
The yellow connecter is video, red is right audio and white is left audio.
You can purchase converter leads (scart to phono(the red/white/yellow connecters) or many other combinations) if needed.
If you have scart connections ( a block of 21 pins) then use that if possible as it will give a better picture.
Connect the dvd out to vcr in and vcr out to the tv in.
NOTE. if you connect this way you will find that the copyright protection will make viewing dvds quite poor quality and may even be black and white or even the picture may "roll"
You may want to buy a scart block to connect more scarts to the tv then it has, also you can get these with different connections.

VHS backups on DVD


Your VCR will NOT copy any commercialy published tapes to DVD disks. There is a protection built in to every sync line of the video on the VCR tapes. This is known as MacroVision protection.

The machine that you bought has been designed to block anything with MacroVision, and anything with any other industry standard copy protections. The codes for this are permanently burned in to the main uPC of the machine.

The publishers of the tapes do not know who is copying for what purpose, and how many are being copied. Under copyright laws they have the right to to take whatever action necessary to protect all their publications.
