Did you even read his post ? He purchased a DVD RECORDER (standalone) and wants to hook his VCR to it and convert his old VHS movies to DVD - The dvd recorder is reporting that the material is copyrighted.
A DVD recorder will give this message when it detects a macrovision signal - Problem is that some very old VHS tape in very bad conditions and crappy VCRs can be mistaken for copyprotected tapes.
There are different ways for you to solve this problem
A. Use a full window TimeBaseCorrector that will fully regenerate video sync.
option B which is the least expensive, get one of those boxes that strips the macrovision signal from your VHS signal (although I don’t know how efficient this box is as I’ve never used it myself but have heard it does work!)
