Subject: Re: DVD TO VHS

TEXT/PLAIN (38 lines)

Hello all,

Technically, copying from DVD to VHS is just a matter of connecting them
by a cable.  BUT ...  DVDs are encoded so the signal will not transmit
clearly to a VHS.  I read this but being an empiricist had to try it
myself.  The sound transmits and copies fine, but the picture is unstable,
flickering and changing colour constantly.  I suppose if you can put up
with this, you can make copies.  There might be equipment which can
overcome this, but I can't imaging it would be readily available.

sorry not to be of more help

   When jaundice jealousy, and carking care,
Or tyrant pride, or homicide despair,
The soul as on a rack in torture keep,
These monsters Handel's music lulls to sleep.
                               - anon. 1740
