Disable Sony TRV70 timeout

I have a great TRV70 sitting around and would like to use it as a web cam. It works great either streaming USB or firewire for about 5 minutes and then times out and goes to sleep. It will work fine if recording to tape but I do not want to burn up my heads. Does anyone know how to disable the timeout or sleep mode on the TRV70?

Thanks
Kirk

Search the menus for A. SHUT OFF. You may be able to switch that off. Also, make sure there is no tape in the deck -- many times the Auto Shut Off is only enabled when there's a tape inside.

Edit: Ah! Found it! While there's no setting for this, p. 26 of the manual states that "your camera does not turn off automatically while the cassette is not inserted."
