    :(Is anyone aware of a combo unit that will copy VHS protected tapes to DVD? I OWN many old tapes that I want to preserve onto DVD - and most combo recorders can't get past the VHS tape (Macrovision?) copy protection. I'm not doing anything illegal - I purchased ALL of these VHS tapes want to make a copy for myself.:(

    This will not land you in jail... it sounds like what you want to do is make a single personal copy of each video to DVD... this is NOT illegal. A single personal back-up copy is covered in the fair use rules. Just don't make several copies or try to distribute/exhibit them, and you don't need to worry about the law. Making a back up copy of media is NOT pirating, and the courts have recognized this. You will need a DVD Recorder, and, Grex video stabilizer to transfer your VHS media to DVD.For real – I have never seen a quicker or easier method .

    Thanks a lot for your suggestion about Grex.
    I ordered a Grex unit from XDIMAX a while back. I've now had it for
    almost a week or two. It has seen a fair amount of use so far, and I
    am ecstatic with the results!
    I've recorded via the composite and S-Video connections. The video
    sources come either from my cable TV (Comcast) or from Netflix streams
    via my WiFi enabled Blu-Ray players.
    The unit has performed flawlessly and although I haven't tried hard to
    do so, upon casual viewing I have not been able to notice any sort of
    degradation of the signal (which I was, admittedly a bit afraid of).
    Thanks so much

    I need to purchase Grex www xdimax.com/grex/grex.html to work with my DVD Recorder in Australia and UK. Can I use Grex outside US?

    Yes sure. I've been successfully using Grex in Canada and in UK.
    First of all Grex supports not only NTSC (video signal standard used
    in USA, Canada and north America) but as well PAL (used in Europe, UK,
    Australia,...).
    Second, they provide power supply for Grex according to your
    destination. Take a look here:
