I have the CT 2 and the CT 200, and they have copied over 500 or more VHS tapes (commercial and home made) and DVDs to my three different Sony recorders with no problems whatsoever.

Hello, I would like to offer some people here another solution.
I have a Sima Color Corrector that I use, it`s the Sima CC2
unit. It does a better job at fixing the Color Stripe code
found on alot of video tapes.
I have alot of ADULT video tapes that I bought from
Adam and Eve over the years, and ALOT of these video tapes are
copies, NOT the original. That`s how they used to sell them.
UNFORTUNATLY, they are loaded with the Macrovision
Color stripe and some are unwatchable!
I use the CC2 to get rid of as MUCH of the color stripe
that I can. The Sima ct-200 does not do a good job with
Also, the CC2 does NOT get rid of the color stripe
completely! It`s STILL THERE! I`m SO SICK of seeing
a PURPLE, YELLOW and sometimes ORANGE color stripe
at the top 2-4 inches of my tv screen!!!!!
Is there ANYTHING out there that will get rid of these
stripes for good?????
