The new old problem
I just bought a new RCA dual vhs to dvd machine which works fine for my own tapes from tv. My problem is when copying movie vhs (about 30 of them) which won't copy (pops up with "video is copy protected".
Any way of getting around this? Some of these tapes are 10-12 years old and i'm afraid they may get outdated and break the tapes.
Thanks in advance for any help.

The reason for this is the analog protection system called macrovision. There are some devices to allow copying but it would require a second VCR.

I can see they have a new product - Grex.
Any references about it?
Here is the link (somehow it is not easy to find from the web site)
