Anyone have a link to buy the Zorilla video filter, or one like it? I had a link to a site in Britain I think and lost it.

For that price, why don't you buy 3 Apex region free/macrovision free dvd players for $50-80? Apex 1500 models ending in a,b,c or d are hackable w/ a disc and removes all copyright/macorvision protection.

Maybe because APEX DVD players don't play back VHS tapes which is where most people are having the problems (trying to convert VHS collections to DVD) with the Panasonic copy protection circuits.

Could the brightness adjustment on this unit be used to correct for the luminance error on older Panasonic units like the E30?

Thanks Joe.

I recall reading about another video filter available in Britain or Europe that consists of specially engineered video cables/connectors and are considerably cheaper, and said to work with anything. You use the cable as the last link into your recorder and it filters everything regardless of source. Anyone know about that?

I tried the Radio shack $30 modulator for VHS to DVD-r and it didn't work.
I was going to buy the "video clarifier" from facetvideo.com but it is backordered till Friday. It is half the price of the Zorillo filter and boasts S-VHS connectivity which the Zorillo filter lacks for Panasonics.

I found the place in UK but it was almost $150 after shipping with the money conversions so it was the same as Zorillo.

I tried going through the ATI Radeon in my computer but it still passed the Macrovision.

Full solution including DVD to DVD the $150 filters may be worth it and the Clarifier for $89 is a great deal if it works. But I sure wish one of the Hong Kong $25 black boxes would work for VHS and then I would get the Apex for DVD conversions.

The $25 black box found here
is dvd to vhs not vica versa

I have checked everywhere and the cheapest I found is the facetvideo. If I don't find anything else before Fri I will order it and let you know how it works

I've used the SIMA (www.simacorp.com) Video Copymaster for this purpose (ie, I wanted to route the video signal from the DVD player to my Audio receiver for switching purposes, but the Macrovision got in the way) without difficulties; it retails for about $60. This is good only for composite video, though. I don't know what you'd use for component.

Hope this helps.

This device doesn't work with Panasonic recorders.

I assume you have used the macrovision detect registry defeat? I know that I can copy a macroed tape from VHS to my HDD by using that method. Were you trying to use the Radeon as some kind of pass-through to the standalone? Since I don't have one of those, I have no idea if that will work...

The Lik-Sang video stabilizer ($25) works great for VHS with my HS2.

Feed VHS material into a Digital Camcorder ( I use a SOny TRV-20)...use firewire out to your recorder ( I use a Phillips 985)....bingo no more copy protection...not on VHS....not on DVD's....everything copies.

"The Clarifier", available at www.facetvideo.com , does work with the Panasonic DMR-E80. I have already made backup copies of my pre-recorded VHS copies of The Compleat Beatles and Star Wars Trilogy (widescreen).
