turning macrovision off on Pioneer DV525

hi, i was wondering if anybody could tell me how I can turn macrovision off on the Pioneer DV-525 player. We don't have enough inputs on the TV to have both a VCR and a DVD player so we're routing the DVD player to go through the VCR. I'd appreciate it if anybody can help and I apologize if I'm breaking any rules in this forum.

I think you can use an RF modulator. I installed one on my girlfriends tv, which only had one input. They are easy to use and relatively cheap(aboot $30 at Radio Shack)

There's a cpmpany who will modify a DVD player to defeat macrovision but it's like $100-200 or something like that. Probably easier to get an RF modulator at Radio Crap.

I got a SIma Color Corrector (I thihk that's what it's called) and that takes out the macrovision so I could connect my dvd to vcr.

For me, to watch dvds in my bedroom, I got one of the video senders from X10. Yeah, I know they are evil, but it works. I just hooked that up at both ends, and voila, DVD in my bedroom.
