Macrovision (IIRC) makes the digital tracking signal become unstable. Hence, your video recorded messes it up and you find that picture goes distorted and starts to roll.
You can copy to VHS in two ways:
1) Get a really old VCR which has manual tracking. Macrovision doesn't affect it.
2) Buy a little box which goes between player and recorder and removes the Macrovision signal.
Alternatively, there may be a firmware update or hidden menu on your recorder which removes the protection.
Crosswind technique: "Using your peripheral vision, react to body movements, gasps, groans, and shouts from the other side of the cockpit, and always remember that it's better to be lucky than good."
