Golden-ear snake oil apparently intended to force the price of 1N4001s higher.

However, there's a chance that a "network" (our ex-Soviets would call it a
"nyet-work") like this might have an unintended effect of attenuating video
synch signals to the point that the receiving video unit would be forced to
restore them.  One side-effect?  Stripping Macrovision copy protection.

If anybody has a "video stabilizer," two VCRs, and an recent Disney video,
can you build this thing and report back?  I've got plans and parts for a
video stabilizer, plus the other stuff, but lack the requisite "round tuit"
for assembly.
