My DVD Player is connected to My VCR. I Am Having Trouble Getting Clear Picture

Last Update Date : Apr 20. 2018

 The motion picture industry has encoded most DVD and VHS movies with a signal known as Macro-vision or copy guard. When a DVD player is connected to a VCR, the VCR picks up the Macro-vision signal and produces an unstable, black and white, or faded picture. This prevents unauthorized duplication of these movies.

To see a clear picture, you must disconnect your DVD player from your VCR and connect it directly to the audio and video inputs on your television. If your television is not equipped with separate audio and video inputs, you must purchase an RF modulator. You can purchase an RF modulator at most electronics stores.
