asked on

record VHS in DVD recorder through TV

For the following devices,

DVP-NS50P DVD Player
SLV-N88 VHS Player
KV-20FV300 20" FD Trinitron TV

The DVD output goes to the VHS input.
VHS output goes to TV's input.
TV is connected to VHS through coaxial cable.

So when the DVD player is played it comes on the TV OK. (passes from DVD->VHS->TV)
also when the VHS is played it comes on the TV OK. (Flows from VHS to TV directly)

if the DVD player is played, the VHS is able to able to record it. (through coaxial cable)

now there is a VRD-MC1 DVD Recorder
Is it possible or what will it take to record the VHS input from TV  into DVD format through the recorder?

above 3 do not get interrupted.

can you explain what is macrovision compliant.

right now, the VCR's RCA output is going as input to TV;  and the co-ax is input from TV to VCR.

>>That means the MC1 will be reliant on the TV decoder in the VCR so you'll only be able to record what the VCR is >>outputting (i.e. you can't watch one thing and record another on the MC1)

if the above is the best we can achieve because of the old technology, that is fine- what changes should i implement in the current set to make this happen?

thanks
is the above a limitation of the VCR or DVD Recorder?
