Please help me!

Does it work WITH the rec/pause step? If so then that's just the nature of the beast and that's how you will have to do it... sucks because won't the camera go into powersave every 5 mins or so.... better than nothing for now.

On most (but not all) European camcorders, the pass-through feature has been disabled (licensing issue or something like that).

Here's an update - I didn't need to put the camcorder into record mode afterall. It converts just fine as long as its in VCR-on mode.

There's one major technical problem with this approach - it makes me want to upgrade the PC, so it will do better real-time renders. ;)

Are you refering to the preview in real time of all your tracks, effects, color correction, etc? IF that is the case thean your best bang for buck to upgrade would be your memory path to the CPU. So I guess I should say that this is not cheap because it is limited by your motherboard chipset. For better preview performance, you need fast RAM to CPU access. Having gigs of free RAM will not help much (unfortunately).

Oh, as for a follow up on this... my Sharp VL-NZ100 won't preview :( Oddly it will do analog pass through coming in but won't preview the firewire data... only when I "print to tape" with dv controlled deck turned on do I get output on the screen.

Oh well... anyone wanna suggest a cheap POS mini dv cam that will allow pass through AND previewing? I need to replace a capture cam anyway and want to get one that can do both of these... the JVC that broke didn't do either.
