Macrovision

Hi all,

I already searched on this forum for a "Macrovision Remover" schematic but I did not find much usefull information.

Please could someone point me to a link where I can find the schematic to realize this interface ?

On this forum I found a link but it points to an adult site.

Thanks in advance.........

Microvision
Is a form of copy protection that causes video recorders to react to a signal applied to the original signal that makes the origanal video material uncopyable.
I first came across this copy rotection about 11 years ago. The signal after the frame pulse has at line 15/ 16 pulses that very between black level to full white. pulsating and verying . this causes the agc system in the recorder to turn the recording gain control up and down as the recorder recordes the incoming signal. I have tryed to build 3 or 4 differant circuits to take this out but the only one that realy works is one that was published inthe hobby electronics magazine about 4 years ago . I have built this and it uses a pic chip to time the circuit into removing the signal, software on there web site. I am sorry that I do not have the circuit any more but possibly someone else has.

Here is one that dates back to 1995. Explains theory too.

http://www.repairfaq.org/filipg/LINK/F_MacroVision2.html

:idea: Another option to get around Macrovision is to use a simple video modulator. The cheap ones ($20 to $30) you can find nearly anywhere like Best Buy, Circuit City, WalMart, Kmart, etc., do not have AGC circuits and therefore are not vulnerable to the Macrovision trick. I am using one right now on my DVD player to feed my TV which has only an RF input. While this was my only option, it is not the most desired option because video is slightly degraded with mod/demod techniques. But still I think it's very clear and it's MUCH better than nothing!
