DV/D8 Dubbing (DV/D8
Before DV/D8 Dubbing
This section explains dubbing with a digital video
camera via the DV IN jack on the front panel. If
you want to dub by way of the LINE IN jacks, see
“Recording From Connected Equipment With a
Timer (Synchro Rec)” on page 53.
To record from the DV IN jack
The DV IN jack on this recorder conforms to the
i.LINK standard. You can connect any other
equipment that has an i.LINK (DV) jack, and
record digital signals.
Follow the instructions in “Connecting a Digital
Video Camera to the DV IN Jack,” and then move
on to the section on dubbing. For more
information about i.LINK, see “About i.LINK” on
If you plan to do additional editing on a disc after the
initial dub, use the DV IN jack and record on a DVD-RW
(VR mode) or DVD-R (VR mode). Note that erasing
unwanted scenes does not free up disc space for DVD-Rs
Connecting a Digital Video
Camera to the DV IN Jack
You can connect a digital video camera to the DV
IN jack on the recorder to record or edit from a
DV/D8 format tape. Operation is straightforward
because the DVD recorder will fast forward and
rewind the tape for you – you do not need to
operate your digital video camera. Do the
following to start using the “DV/D8 Edit”
functions of this recorder.
See the instruction manual supplied with the
digital video camera as well before connecting.
• The DV IN jack is for input only. It will not output
• You cannot use the DV IN jack when:
– your digital video camera does not work with this
recorder. Connect the camera to the LINE IN jack and
follow the instructions of “Recording From
Connected Equipment Without a Timer” on page 56.
– the input signal is not in DVC-SD format. Do not
connect a MICROMV format digital video camera
even if it has an i.LINK jack.
– the images on the tape contain copy protection
signals, which limit recording.
