You can record a video played on your VCR or analog camcorder or a TV program onto a tape in the camcorder, if the TV or other device has audio/video outputs.

    - See your TV and VCR instruction manuals for details.

  3. Turn the camcorder?s POWER switch to PLAY (VCR), and move the camcorder?s TAPE/CARD switch to TAPE ().

    - S-video and AV IN/OUT terminals work as input terminals.
    - The camcorder enters record pause mode.

  • If an anomalous signal is sent from the TV or VCR, the images recorded on the tape may also be anomalous (although it may not appear so on the TV image), not recorded at all, or COPYRIGHT PROTECTED DUBBING RESTRICTED may appear in the display.
  • You are unable to dub tapes recorded with the copyright protective signal.
  • Headphones cannot be used during analog line-in recording.
  • If you have the AV/headphones terminal set to headphones, it will automatically switch to AV for analog line-in recording. PHONES disappears from the display.

We recommend powering the camcorder from a household power source.
