I got my parents a DVD player over the holidays, and because the VIDEO input to their TV doesn’t, we had to hook it up to the input of the VCR. The VCR’s video played by going to channel 3, like in the old days before video inputs.
While watching DVDs with this setup, occasionally the brightness will lower or rise by itself, with a gradual but quick change.
I saw somewhere that maybe this is caused by the Macrovision copy protection system on the DVD player. Can anybody confirm or deny this is possible?
If it is, is there a legal way for me or my mother to acquire a filter? One that fixes the brightness issue and still prevents copying would be just fine.
