I just brought a new desktop with vista (32-bit verison) and a AverMedia Tuner card. Using media center I can copy vhs tapes to file. my problem is that I can’t copy copy protected vhs tapes using media center. So, I just want to know is there a programe that will at lease let me capture or view copy protected VHS tapes? I have a program that I can use to capture it but I need to view and of course hear it. The program that I use to Capture is ZD Soft Video recorder. Can anyone help?

As far as I know if you can copy it anyone else can copy it regardless of what protection you use. If you planning to sell those DVD one better be ready for the MPAA/RIAA come knocking on your door. You can’t really copy protect vhs except for the studio that uses the macrovision copy protection scheme. Your right macrovision prevent you from using just media center from backing up the vhs. And if you do a little homework on the net and do a simple search you will find others having made this discussion as well here a few links:

You’ll need a video stabilizer or TBC (time based corrector) to remove macrovision from the VHS video input to your capture card. Grex used to be one brand for this, and it still seems to be available from one source, but its not dirt cheap.

Many of the older Hauppauge capture cards with mpeg2 hardware encoders would ignore macrovision protection, so they didn’t need the stabilizers.

I did a search for some links here at club.myce .
Harunvs you posted you have a Grex .
You need to run the video through the Grex the same as you would to a stand alone DVD recorder . AverMedia seems to have several tuner cards but your’s probably has either composite or s-video input . If not there is probably a “dongle” adapter that will allow this.

One of these cables is probably the correct dongle for your card.

Just as you can’t copy commercially made video tapes to another VCR due to Macrovision anti-copy encoding, the same applies to making copies to DVD. DVD recorders cannot bypass the anti-copy signal on commercial VHS tapes or DVDs. If a DVD recorder detects the anti-copy encoding on a commercial DVD it will not start the recording and display some sort of message either on screen or on its LED front panel display that it detects the anti-copy code or that it is detecting an unusable signal.
However. I can recommend one firm which can solve it. I have found here such site http://xdimax.com/grex/grex.html.
They have a device - GREX, I heard that with its help it is possible to block protection DVD and satellite tv-channels and to write down transfers on the dvd. It removes Macrovision.

@ Reddertyie , Did you read the posts by myself & Kerry ?
Both of us brought up the Grex .I have one & in another thread
Harunvs ordered one & used it for an earlier project.
Basically the Grex filters the video input for most copy protection.

Now they need to engineer one for audio on blu ray that will filter Cinavia.
