    Default Taping DVD-to-VCR question

    Is it possible to tape to a video from a DVD on a DVD/VCR player? I tried pushing play and record when it was on VCR then switching over to the DVD but all it taped was a blank screen. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Did it record the sound? I've never tried it before, but it should work. I would try a few different configurations, and maybe different players. I can't think of any reason it shouldn't work. The analog signals should be universally compatible...

    Many commercial DVDs and VHS cassettes use copy protection that prevents them from being recorded onto VHS. Usually you will get a rolling black and white picture if you try to do this, though.

    A blank screen could indicate that you recorded from the wrong source. However, if your TV automatically goes to blue screen to cover up weak or distorted signals (as most TVs do these days), then perhaps you are just not seeing the distorted video that has been recorded.

    Oh, I see now that this is in "Bootleg Network"...if it is non-commercial stuff you are trying to copy, then ignore my last post.
