icecow asked me if macrovision could be eliminated on the Panasonic combo units. Well, I didn't think it could but it looks like it can. I installed a special hack in the combo image and booted it in my PVHS2000. Sure enough the combo 2.0 software contains both replay and Panasonic code. My PVHS2000 has successfully switched macrovision on and off. I'm looking for one brave soul to install the hacked disk image in a combo to test it out. Any takers? Naturally there is risk to your recorder that I can not be responsible for. Looks good so far.
