I know there have been a lot of questions and posts about this topic. But I just want a straightforward answer, without getting all the more confused.
I bought a VHS/DVD combo, it's the Panasonic DMV line (I forgot which one specifically) anyways, I have been wanting to transfer my old tv shows to DVD. Everything was going fine and dandy, but when I got to one whole tv series that I got from an old trade, it doesn't want to copy. It tells me that it is unable to copy due to copyright. What I want to know is why was I able to copy a commercially released VHS to DVd with no problem at all, but when I copy a VHS tape/s that I got from a trade that is not commercially available, my machine tells me I can't because of copyright issues?
Is there anyway around it? Someone told me to get a TBC, will this be enough? I do not want to spend too much anymore, but I was able to find a DP-X7000 TBC online for $125.00.
You think this will solve my problem? If not, what do I need to get around this copyright thing, without using my PC. This TBC is confusing enough as it is
I look forward to your advice.

Many devices - but a TBC is certain to cure CopyRight or CGMS.
Without the "green effect" that I've seen with lesser devices.
$125 for a real TBC is cheap - $125 for a "copy stabilizer" is more to the high end.
I have seen GoDVD devices trading for alot of money on ebay - for a similar device.
They used to sell for $70 new.
I personally use a DataVideo TBC 1000 - housed in a drive enclosure (needed the 12 volt power supply) for my tough work.;/ l ,[____], Its a Jeep thing,

Yeah, but the problem with using a TBC is, as he stated in his OP, he has a VHS/DVD combo unit.
Yes, Noahtuck is right. Or to put it another way so there is no misunderstanding, since the original poster bought a combo unit, there's probably no way to hook up a TBC in the path to the DVD recorder. This kind of thing is exactly why you should not buy combo units.
