To get rid of the rubbish protection scheme: http://www.threedoubleyou.com/copierplus.htm or: http://www.geocities.com/TelevisionCity/5796/ or: http://www.satalogue.com/section6/page0.htm or: http://www.satalogue.com/section1/page2.htm or build your own at: http://www.thoic.com/nexus/macro.html This rubbish only effects VHS. If you have a Hi-8 VCR, you can record to these tapes with no side effect. You could also try some older VCRs that do not suffer from the AGC defect deliberately introduced to the VHS spec to permit this scheme, or get the circuit diagram of your VCR and modify the AGC response time.
