how?
I worked with dvd/video for a long while...I know for a fact that most recent VCRs will not make the recording and most DVDs won't either

usually it distorts the hell out of the movie or either the audio or video wont transfer

I don't see why you couldn't. One you have the DVD player hooked up though the VCR it should tape like you would tape something on TV...right?

Yeah but some VCRs have some type of scrambler that prevents movies from being copied. My VCRs are three years old and I have recorded several DVD movies on tape.

You should be able to if you can run the signal the right way and basically trick the vcr into thinking it's recording a regular television signal. But a lot of vcr's now have problems with it. It's like trying to record a video game while you're playing it. I've had problems with ppv's too. I'm not sure how the setup would go, but you could prolly get around it somehow. Although I've never actually tried to do it mayself.

I do it all the time with wrestling DVDs from blockbuster.
My only problem is when I run the DVD through the video the background lighting sometimes flickers, but apart from that it goes sweet
