How can I remove Macrovision from a VHS tape??!

I have a VHS tape bought from a rental store and I want to copy it to my DVR but alas, it says its COPY PROTECTED and wont let me!!

I had no idea VHS tapes could carry macrovision.

Anyway, does anyone know how to get my VHS onto my DVR?

I'm a little unclear whether this is allowed to be discussed, but an internet search should provide you an answer very quickly.

Sorry, Save Ferris, breaking copy-protection mechanisms is a verboten topic even if it's not on DVDs. (Yes, it sucks. Write your Congressman to repeal the DMCA.)

Ask not what your country can do for you... because the answer is disappointing.
