[qanda]This thread is about the Panasonic DIGA DMR-EH60D.

I live in the UK and own a Panasonic dmreh60d rgion 2 DVD recorder and would like to transfer all my collection of old VCR films and television series to DVD to save space and dump the VCR.
The trouble is some of them won't record due to what I believe to be "Macrovision protection".
I don't know this is a taboo subject on this forum, and I don't want to fall foul of the moderator, but am I allowed to ask if I could resolve this problem by buying a device called a Macromaster box (not a SCART lead) which has two SCART connections which should be be connected between the VCR and the DVD recorder and also a mains lead for powering it.
I have read so many conflicting reports on this subject on the web that I don't know what to believe, and I would hate to spend up to Â£50 on something that might be useless!
