I have used the SIMA SCC-2 to get past the macrovision.
I recorded maybe 8 VHS tapes which turned out great,
but now, its faded terribly.
I am wondering if it messed up my 5005.
Before I ever used the SIMA the picture was vibrant and clear,
but now it seems washed out.
No matter what goes thru the 5005 now, either TV, tapes, DVD's,
the color seems so faded.
Even recording and playback it isn't as vibrant as it was before I used
the SIMA SCC-2.
Has any other of you fine people out there, used the SIMA, with or
Or was this problem going to happen on its own, even if I never used the SIMA.
BTW I bought and used the SIMA SCC-2 before I knew you could hack the FW
