You'll need a TBC between the VCR and DVD rec. Can this unit loopback? VCR out to s-video wires, back to an input on DVD side? I don't remember.
Yeah, you nailed it. I did the vcr out to dvd input and it worked. Thanks for the help.
And I'd like to add ....

Lots of devices claim tapes are "copyright protected" even when it's a homemade video. As is mentioned hundreds of times on this site (and others online), it's false detection. Anti-copy is an artificial video error, so authentic video errors tend to confuse the overly-sensitive detection mechanisms in the capture card or DVD recorder. To "get around" this problem, you need a timebase corrector -- a full standalone TBC.

The AVT-8170 from B&H is highly suggested (and B&H has the best price on it, about $215-225 shipped.) Get it at http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...3167/KBID/4166

Glad to hear that the JVC SR-MV45 allows for loopback, from VCR to DVD recorder. I figured that would be the case. Anybody wanting to get one of these pro-end S-VHS VCR / DVD recorder combos can still pick one up for a great price at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...SIN=B000OH7RF0

... and thanks for the follow-up!
