Can this copyguard protection be removed from the unit? The support staff for Magnavox mentioned something about changing the mode on the unit from VR mode to Video Mode to eliminate the error when trying to record to DVD, but they cant tell me how to do this. Do you guys know how to do this? If it's in put in place by Magnavox, then how come Pioneer, Panasonic, dont have it? Most of these Encore movies are either old as the hills, from the 50s, 60s, 70s, early 80s, or current B grade flicks that have no commercial value cause their so bad. You cant buy the Posiden Adventure or the Seven Year Itch anyplace, so what value do they have? Marilyn Monroe has been dead for 45 years, none of her movies are worth their weight in crap. None of this makes much sense. I've heard there are tons of blogs about this dumb error, some recommend returning the recorder. And what are you supposed to do now that they quit making VHS tapes? When these run out in the stores, I wont be able to record anything from the Encore channels. None of this makes any logical sense. Phil Berglund
