Perhaps you can help me out with a solution to this problem. I have an old TV that still works great, it’s up in the bedroom. We went out and got a home theater system, so the old DVD player went upstairs. However, there is not a way to connect the DVD player to the TV. “Okay,” I think to myself, “I’ll just use the composite video in on the VCR, and then the picture will show up on the TV.”
I moved everything around and got it all connected, the DVD movie does play, but comes through with the contrast and brightness cycling up and down. I’m guessing the VCR thinks I’m trying to copy a copy-protected video tape.
Is there any thing I can buy, alter, to get the DVD movie to play through the VCR without the brightness and contrast cycling? Well, besides a new TV.
