VX2100 lay off to tape problem--HELP

Hi there:

I am trying to lay off my program to a mini dv tape on my Sony VX2100 from my Mac Pro (using Final Cut Pro/firewire). The camera does not see the incoming signal and I cannot see anything on it's viewfinder window.

I used to do lay offs to the VX1000 and it worked.

But I don't know how to record to tape to the VX2100.

I followed the directions in the Sony manual... and put the power switch into VCR mode instead of camera... but then what do I do to record. I also made the prescribed adjustments in the menu settings. What do I do after I put the camera in VCR mode... do I press record? What is next?

Also there is no way to see the incoming signal via firewire. Please help me---I need to lay off two shows by Monday.

Thanks,

Yvette

have you tried...

Hi

I normaly put the camera into VCR mode, select the sequence and use Edit to Tape from the FCP File menu, it all just fires up from there. Hope this helps
