    the quickest, easiest way would be to buy a video stabilizer box and run the video signal through it, to a VCR. then just make VHS copies of your tapes & DVDs. you can prolly get one for somewhere between $50 and $100 USD at a store like circuity city, best buy or radio shack. just tell 'em you want a video stabilizer for dubbing, they'll know what you're talking about.

    there's nothing illegal about the box itself, because they're useful for maintaining the color quality when you dub camcorder videos and stuff like that. it's just that you prolly shouldn't mention that you want to make backups of copyrighted videos unless you want some holier-than-thou salesman giving you a lecture.

    making a digital backup with a PC results in higher quality, but it's a lot more time-consuming and i doubt the kids would notice the difference in quality anyway... so i'd say a stabilizer and a pack of blank tapes should do the trick.

    If you're trying to get rid of the macrovision for a dvd player, you can do some firmware hacks that will 'update' your dvd player software and get rid of the macrovision. I haven't tried this myself, but others have and it works. More info on this here: at dvdrhelp. Look under dvdhacks.

    if you got a old VCR, like the top mount ones from back in the day
    you can run the video signal throe the old VCR(they didn't have the macro vision chip) then just run the out to a newer VCR for recording
    the old VCR doesn't even have to play, just needs to turn on, cause your just passing the signal throe the VCR

    that's a good suggestion too. i'm not sure what percentage of dvd players can disable macrovision, but there is a chance that you can do it by finding a secret menu in the player that disables it, or by updating its firmware/BIOS. dvdrhelp is a good site, or you might find info by simply searching google.com for your player's model number + "macrovision."

    i just suggested a video stabilizer because it's the simplest, surefire way of making a backup. if you don't have one of the stores that i listed nearby... just try any place that specializes in home electronics. or you could easily buy one through the internet. http://www.bgsales.com/electronics/vidstab.asp

    I simply copy the DVD to my old VHS recorder (I bought it around 1995) and all works well!

    Simple is the best
