HV20 Recording analog via Video-In? (Urgent help needed)

Hi,

Sorry for the silly questions but:
How can I enable analog video-in recording on HV20?
What cables do I need?
What should I enable or disable from the menus?

I have that cable with mono 3,5mm looking plug plugged into HV and standard RCA at the other end plugged to PC`s analog video output but HV shows no image.

Thanks in advance,
T

I have not tried it yet, but there are instructions in the manual.

However, keep in mind that analog in only works in DV modes, not HDV.

Also, I believe you need to enable "AV-DV" in the menus.

OK, problem solved as follows:
Cam in PLAY mode
Push the menu button and from the first selection "execute" rec/pause
It works something like 5minutes and then goes to sleep so be quic to push rec or reactivate the rec/pause

I almost made it to record from laptop s-video out but shame the signal went BW with the conversion cable...

... I wish I could record desktop activity or anything happening on the screen via firewire

Cheers,
T
