    Hello,

    I have a DVP-670D Sony dvd player. I had the video out of it hooked in to the Video In of my Sony VCR using a standard analog composite video cable that came with the DVD Player. This worked fine. Actually better than the RF Modulator that I had. With that, the picture was too bright and couldn't get it to look normal. Any ways, I purchased a nice quality single Composite video cable to replace the standard cable and now the picture will get really dark , then go brighter to a normal looking picture, then back to dark again. It does this in a reoccuring cycle. Could the cable be bad, or can the VCR Vid Input not handle the better quality cable ?? By the way, my tv is older and has no RCA connection on it. This is why I had the RF Modulator first.

    Thanks in advance,

    Jeff

    It's called macrovision or copyright protection. You can't do much about it, but connect direct to tv or get a switcher or AV receiver if that's not possible.

    As I mentioned above, I used a regular analog composite video cable in to the VCR and that worked fine. It only happened when I plugged in the high quality composite cable that this happened.

    You said to connect directly to a receiver ?? How does that work ? Hook it to Video In ( from DVD) then it's out to the VCR ??

    I just purchased a new Yamaha RX-V2200 receiver and it has the Video inputs.

    Thanks
