    I know it's like trying to transfer My Sesame Street Home Video or Sesame Street Songs Home Video from Random House Home Video from Betamax to DVD. It does not work because the Betamax tape has a copy-protection signal by Macrovision.

    Uh huh. Those two situations are very comparable.

    This is why I just don't transfer stuff to DVD.

    Well, interestingly, I was able to transfer a few Sesame VHS tapes (Monster Hits, Zoe's Dance Moves, and I'm Glad I'm Me) to DVDs about 7 years ago...didn't have a copyright problem. Tapes from Jim Henson Video, on the other hand, no go.

    It depends on the DVD Recorder.

    Over ten years ago, I had a DVD Recorder that could copy copyright-protected tapes and such, however the machine would automatically distort the picture as a result: for instance, after the transfer, the copied video would look like a 240p YouTube video, not to mention the top third of the picture would have a yellowish tint (if some of you are able to remember waaaay back when I first started uploading YouTube videos in 2007 and 2008 before reuploading many of them).

    My current DVD Recorder (a Sanyo, which was previously Magnavox), it really depends on the tape: some tapes can be copied, others can't. On the plus side, however, tapes that can be copied can be up-converted to 1080p: it's not perfect, and it enhances artifacts and imperfections, but the quality distortion is minimal.

    Weird. I remember My Sesame Street Home Video: Play-Along Games and Songs used to scramble when the blank Betamax tape was inserted on a dual Betamax VCR Machine. When I copy it from Betamax to DVD on the Betamax/DVD recorder combo, It stops the recording and I get an error message that reads "Recording Error!: This program is not allowed to be recorded!"

    Stranges, My DVD Recorder just stops the recording and I remember my old Panasonic Betamax/DVD Recorder combo would read "Writing Information on disc. Please wait!" Then it reads "Cannot Record! Recording Copyrighted Content is Prohibited!"

    Just seeing that thumbnail of Susan really makes me miss her a lot.

    It would be nice if they all at least came back for the 50th season.
