Hi to all y'all,
I just bought a Philips 630DV - has a VCR and DVD, with the ability to directly copy from one medium to the other. The main reason I bought it was to transfer all our VHS tapes - all legally purchased, I must add, and getting pretty old so I really want to save them - and, as you may guess, I found out that they are copy protected. Searching this (and other) sites, the only solutions I can find are little black boxes and software, but this doesn't solve the problem with a combo VCR-DVD, where there's "nothing in between" (as far as this primitive user is concerned). Any ideas?
