Malata DVP-520 and Macrovision

Dear members,


I, too, am interested in the Malata DVP-520, as most of my favorite films are foreign and other region codes.
That stated, I also desire to get a player that does not have Macrovision interfering with my right to make my own personal copies of various discs onto vhs.
I e-mailed a prominent online seller of the Malata player, who claimed that they could not modify their players this way, and claimed that all players for sale on places such as E-Bay were "hacked" to be Macrovision-free, and thereby might have voided warranties.
Now, I don't want to purchase a player with a voided warranty, but neither do I want one that has been intentionally manufactured to prevent me from making my own personal copies, so I am asking you members of the forum what I should do.
Are there external devices that I could add between the Malata player and my vcr that would enable me to override this annoyance, whilst retaining my warranty?
I want the Malata player, as I have been told that the comparable Sampo players for sale on E-Bay are inferior, but I want one not hindered by Macrovision.
Please advise.
