I like hard drive storage too, but I've has a few drives get flaky on me, and I don't think I'd trust them for long-term storage of anything important.
Sorry to take so long to get back to your question, Brian. Yes, HDD's are a risk, but so are optic media! I've had DVD backups go bad when the glue holding them let go...

There certainly is no "ideal" solution, but since we plan to duplicate these latest productions in both DVD and whatever HD optic solutions appear (HD-DVD and Bluray both seem very temporary/intermediate formats to me) they seem to be a good choice for now.

As HDD's get cheaper and cheaper, duplicate backups are wise as always. 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 drives are under $120 as of yesterday and the 1TB are only a little more than double the cost. That's a lot of storage space even for "full" HD and 2K/4K! And some of the other drives are very durable as well. Nothing today is very permanent, but at least the HDD "solution" helps make it fast and easy to duplicate that info to any new thing that comes along.

As to run 'n gun, tape and flash seem to be the only real options (unless you have a custom portable solution converting on the fly to CF on HDD... that's why I started the "RIO project" and a friend built one for us. It's definitely a working, real-life, right-now solution, though a bit bigger than what CF is wanting to put together). Hopefully a small, light and flexible system will soon exist to allow us to do HD with in long formats.

Irregardless, we'll still need something to transport, edit and store that HD video and I guess that's why we are using HDDs. If flash drives were cheap, we'd use those instead!

In a Perfect world

In a perfect world this unit would have a Expresscard/34 interface instead of a memory stick slot. Then it would really take off. I used to use the minidv version as a capture and record deck in my office. if it had a way to injest both fomats you could have a A B setup and the editor would not have any problems getting the two formats into the NLE no matter where they are or what the hardware set up is.

so I cannot use it on an XHA1 but it would work to record and view a tape from the hv20,

I understand it cannot play 24f what about recording a 60i stream from the xha1 through the firewire? is that a possible or it just wont work at all?

Of course it is compatible with 60i from a Canon XL or XH series camcorder.

I think I asked that in a bad way, what I meant to say if on the xha1 I was shooting 24f could that be output and captured into the device through firewire only in a 60i stream like the hv20 does? Not that I would want that per se, but it would be better than getting no back up at all, I am am guessing that some software could likely remove the 24 frames from the 60i stream.

Does this work with the jvc HDV (i.e. Gy-HD110u)?

It looks like a discontinued JVC product, elusive little bugger, cant even find its model though I know Ive seen it....

I haven't seen this mentioned yet: what is the rewind and ffw speed like on this walkman? I currently capture HDV from my XH A1, but the speed and firewire "delay" are so frustrating that I don't log clips anymore because it takes forever. I just "capture now" the entire tape and then sort it out in FCP. I would like a deck that will allow me to again log clips and then batch capture. I am pretty sure that sony's HDR-M15U deck is fast and efficient (like my DSR-11), but I am not sure if the GV-HD700 will be as fast. Any ideas?

P2 and HDV

Just bought one of these decks and was going to use it as a back up from my P2 502 camera. Guess what, doesn't work. The only setting that will work is the lowest setting of the camera DV.

Sorry to resurrect an ancient thread, but this little guy's been out for a while now, and I'm still interested in this question. Sony's notoriously mum about hidden features in some of their gear.

Has anyone tried to playback a 720p HDV tape recorded in a JVC HD-1xx camera in one of these Sony units? What happens? Will it output to firewire?

No Firewire. Page 76. Component or composite only. Possibly HDMI.
