The GREX Digital Video Stabilizer

New technologies not only make our life more comfortable and saturated but they also bring us a number of irritating limitations that in worst case can even take over advantages of the same technology. Modern digital and analog video recording against Macrovision Copyright Protection Technology is exactly the case. Just take a look at the list of the common problems that the people like you came across our site with.
We have a large Video Tapes collection that contains Disney animations and movies and a big number of Commercial VHS. To preserve our tapes by putting them on DVD Disks we've bought DVD Recorder ( DVD/VCR Combo Recorder ). But unfortunately DVD Recorder does not let us copy protected VHS to DVD. Dubbing Protected VHS to DVD also does not work. DVD Recorder keeps saying "Can not copy copyright protected video to DVD". How can we copy protected Disney VHS to DVD? How to backup our protected VHS with DVD Recorder?
We have a Satellite or Cable Box DVR and want to record and offload movies and TV shows to DVD using DVD Recorder. DVD Recorder keeps saying "Protected Content". How can we connect DVD Recorder to Cable Box DVR?
I have a PC equipped with a Video Capture Card ( FireWire/USB/USB2.0 Digital Recording Device ), DVD Burner and Video Editing Software. I want to use my setup to convert some DVD Disks and Video Tapes to DVD, but unfortunately I can't do it. My Capturing/Recording device detects Macrovision Protection and does not let me get video into the PC. How can I copy protected DVD and VHS to PC?
I've got a DVD Disk with very interesting and thrilling movie/show. I would like to share it with my friends and relatives or just be able to see the same movie/show a few more times. I was trying to make a copy of this specific DVD Disk on my DVD Recorder but all I could get was message on the TV screen saying "You cannot record copy protected movie...". How can I copy protected DVD to DVD Recorder?
Trying to copy some of our DVD Disks to VHS (Video Cassette) or even simply connecting DVD player to VCR (Video Recorder) we get a strange video degradation problem. Cyclically we can see a few seconds of clear picture, after that we get a jumping frames with smashed colors and brightness fading in and out and finally it ends up with a lost picture and a blue screen on TV
I have a high end professional video equipment including LCD and HDTV monitors, Video Projector, Portable DVD Player, Car Video System, e.t.c. I'm using different video connections: Composite Video, S-Video, Component Video (Y,Pb,Pr). Anytime I'm trying to play protected DVD or protected VHS on my system I get distorted Video. It looks like my equipment can not survive Macrovision Protection. I have invested a lot of money in my video system and I believe that I deserve a better video quality on it
