I'm new here, but I'm a veteran lurker. Great site!
If this is the wrong forum, I apologize but I could not find a more relevant one.
I currently have a need to connect a DVD player to an RF-only television, but I'm having some trouble with the Macrovision copy-protection.
I've heard of some VCRs not being sensitive to the Macrovision (at least in pass-through mode) but am not sure of which ones.
Again, I'm not as interested in their video mechanisms, as I am about their pass-through circuitry. I could always get a modulator, but I think a VCR would be easier and simpler.
Can anyone confirm a VCR that does not suffer from Macrovision deterioration in pass-through mode?
I think I need to reiterate my point, as it seems to have gotten lost amongst all the confusion. I'm not looking for a VCR that removes the MV. I just need a VCR that will pass the MV-infected signal to the TV through RF so I can, you know, watch it.
'dumping' my TV is not an option, I like that TV.
mickinct, would you mind mentioning those VCR models?
I prefer a VCR because I'd like to be able to watch my VHS tapes as well, without having an extra box in the chain.
I guess I can just live without DVDs, really.
