I own a Compaq computer withan ATI Rage Pro video card with TV-out. I would like to make VHS copies of my DVDs for PERSONAL USE so that I won't have to sit at the computer every time I want to watch a movie. However, macrovision is making this impossible. I've tried one software program which worked until I restarted the computer. Now it doesn't work at all. Does anyone know of any way to defeat the macrovison? Let me stress that this is for my own personal benefit. I do not plan to sell video copies of DVDs. If anyone can help please do.

Probably the best thing to try right now would be the Rage Tweaker and see if that helps you at all. If that doesn't help you, then it may be really hard to find something that does.

why not just hook your PC to your TV and u can watch DVDs on your TV. Buy.com has cards for around $65.

See, outputting to a TV would still be a problem since no TV is anywhere near the computer & it would require long cables. But I think I have solved the problem for now at least. I found a Cinemaster software decoder that doesn't recognize Macrovision. So I'm good for now. Thanks for the suggestions though, both of you.
