Using the DV Interface Cable for Recording (Digital Dubbing)
By connecting other digital video equipment with DV terminal and the Camcorder by using the DV cable PV-DDC9/PV-DDC9-K (optional) 1, high- image-quality dubbing can be done in digital format. ≥Set to Tape Playback Mode.

≥Even if you use a device equipped with DV terminals such as IEEE1394, you may not be able to perform digital dubbing in some cases. For more information, see the instructions for equipment connected. ≥Regardless of the menu settings on the recorder, digital dubbing is carried out in the same mode as the [AUDIO REC] mode of the playback tape. ≥The images on the recorder monitor may be disturbed, but it does not affect the recorded images. ≥If a picture containing a copyright protection signal (copy guard) is recorded by the Camcorder, the picture is distorted by mosaic- like patterns at playback. ≥While pictures are input from the DV terminal, the operation icon blinks on instead of appearing from the side of the screen when you press the center of the joystick. ≥While pictures are input from the DV terminal, the TV aspect will not change even if you change the setting for [TV ASPECT] in the [SETUP] menu.
