Recording to a VCR or Digital Video Device

You can copy your recordings by connecting the camcorder to a VCR or a digital video device. If you connect to a digital video device via a IEEE-1394 cable (optional), you can copy recordings with virtually no generation loss in image and sound quality.

  1. Set the camcorder to PLAY (VCR) mode and load a recorded cassette.

  2. Connected device: Load a blank cassette and set the device to record pause mode.

  3. Locate the scene you wish to copy and pause playback shortly before the scene.

  • When connecting a VCR, the quality of the edited tape will be slightly lower than that of the original.
  • When connecting a digital video device:
    • If the picture does not appear, reconnect the DV cable or turn the camcorder off and back on again.
    • Proper operation cannot be guaranteed for all digital video devices equipped with a DV terminal. If operation does not work, use the AV terminal.
  • We recommend powering the camcorder from a household power source.

Connecting the devices

Connecting to a VCR:

  1. Turn off all devices before starting the connections.

  2. Connect the STV-250N Stereo Video Cable to the camcorder' s AV terminal and the audio/video terminals on the VCR.
    - Connect the white plug to the white audio terminal L (left), the red plug to the red audio terminal R (right) and the yellow plug to the yellow video terminal VIDEO.

  3. Set the input selector to LINE.

Connecting to a Digital Video Device
