Some VHS tapes have copyright signals embedded in them. Then when the DVD recorder reads the copyright signal it will stop recording due to it thinking there is a copyright violation happening. Try testing with a VHS TAPE of a show you have recorded off the TV and see if it does the same thing .,
You have not mentioned the make and model number of the vcr. Any way the problem is due to end sensor or related circuit. End sensors are photo diods which you can check the shorting with a multy meter.
My creations preview great but when I press the save to DVD nothing happens, I am not saying is a smilebox problem, but It used to work just fine. I am just wanting to know what to do because I just wasted 40 bucks if I cannot burn it
Is it possible the VHS you're trying to copy is copy-protected? Apparently, the MC6 displays "waiting for signal" when you're attempting to copy a copy-protected (commercial) video. I had success converting my own homemade VHS tapes. I just bought my MC6, and thought I'd pass along some tips I got from others: You know you're recording when a red ring around the large Record button lights up and it actually says "recording" on screen, and adjust HQ to SP to get 2-plus hours of video on the DVD.
Ok check you have enough RAM the more the better, Check how much hard drive space is left, on your 60GB drive, sometimes if there isn't a large amount of space ..like 10 - 15GB you can have problems. Actually I would also suggest you try another program to record to your PC. try Dscaler this is simply the best there is.
