I was at Best Buy this afternoon (finally got Bad Taste, yay), browsing video accessories. I came across a device called the "Video Copy Master" (model SED-CM) by a company called SIMA. It cost $50. I've never been much into the hardware side of home theater. I've never heard of this company, and I'm not quite sure what this device does. It said it "boosts the signal" of a video, or something to that effect. It's hard to tell, but does this device defeat Macrovision ? If not, what exactly does it do? If so, is it worth my money? I've been looking for something to defeat Macrovision for a while. And just for the record, I'm totally against pirating/bootlegging. I'd just like to be able to record a few DVDs onto VHS tapes so I can watch them in my bedroom (where I have a VCR but no DVD player).
