    I do a lot of work at home and currently have a couple T-160 VHS tapes
    with some loved movies and TV shows on them in EP. Thier purpose is to
    play mostly uninterupted in the background when I do work so I'm not
    bothered with having to change a channel or a tape or a DVD to something
    agreeable for a good chunk of time.

    I want to make more tapes and I have the old school VHS stabilizer to
    put prerecorded stuff from my VHS collection on those tapes but of
    course DVD's have an extra colorstripe macrovision so most of my DVD's
    are excluded from those tapes right now.

    I know Sima has something to remove it but anyone know what exactly they
    have to do it.

    I thought it might be Color Corrector but it makes no mention of
    removing colorstripe macrovision.

    The key to getting the Sima Color Corrector to remove colorstripe
    Macrovision is to use an S-video cable from the DVD player into the SCC.
    (You will need to do this even if your VHS recorder has only an RCA
    composite video input.)

    The SCC has a built in S-video to composite converter, so you can still hook
    up the SCC output to a conventional non-super VHS recorder.

    In my personal experience, the colorstripe Macrovision needs to be removed
    by the SCC through use of its S-video circuitry.

    That's not a problem, my main DVD connection to the TV is component with
    the composite being used to go through the VCR. The S-Video is unused
    and ready to connect in that fashion as long as it can be output in
    composite.
