Macrovision is a copy protection device commonly found on VHS cassettes and DVDs. Most DVD players also have Macrovision encoded into them. When a DVD player is hooked into a recording device, Macrovision prevents the DVD from recording. With a Macrovision decoder, it is possible to bypass or disable Macrovision and record from one video source to another. However, this should only be done in accordance with federal copyright laws.

    Plug the yellow composite video cable into the yellow composite video output jack on the back of the Toshiba DVD player. Plug the other end of the yellow composite video cable into the video input jack located on the Macrovision Decoder.

    Plug a separate yellow composite video cable into the composite video output jack located on the decoder. Plug the other end of the cable into the yellow video input jack on the back of the recording device.
