straight dv in with xdcam hd

so i can do a straight dub without a computer, from an old dv tape to an xdcam disc. Can't seem to get it to work. Is there a setting somewhere for this?

thanks

The firewire is out only, same as DSR570 etc.

thanks,

is that a eu tax issue, disabled so it isn't classified as video recorder, like the jvc 100 etc? Perhaps accesible from the menus?

If not what is the reasoning behind it. More so for the DSR series using them as a portable deck in the field for laptop editing...

I don't think it is a EU tax only issue. The US version doesn't record through firewire either and that is a bit of a disappointment over the standard def XDCAM cameras who can.

And the composite video connector is output only so you can't even accept a pool feed with this camera.
