To playback an image recorded in HDV format when you connect the monitor using a component video cable, set [COMPONENT] of [VIDEO OUT] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu according to the requirements of your monitor (page 51). When an image recorded in DVCAM/DV format is played back, only an image with a quality equivalent to that of the DVCAM/DV format of 480i (NTSC) or 576i (PAL) is output via the COMPONENT OUT jacks, regardless of the [COMPONENT] setting. For details on the output level from the COMPONENT OUT jacks, see Specifications (page 75). To change the output level from the COMPONENT OUT jacks, see [480i LEVEL] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu (page 53). There are some restrictions on images output from the COMPONENT OUT jacks of the unit.
Refer to COMPONENT OUT jacks 5 (page 13) of Location and Function of Parts. For more information, see Recording Format and Input/ Output Signals on page 24.
Connecting the unit to a monitor equipped with an i.LINK jack
The video and audio signals are sent with hardly any degradation, enabling high-quality playback to a monitor with an i.LINK connector that supports HDV, DVCAM, and DV formats.
For details on i.LINK output formats, see page 72.
i.LINK cable (not supplied)
If you connect the input connectors of the unit to the output connectors of a monitor, a humming noise may be generated or the image may be distorted. If these phenomena occur, use the INPUT SELECT switch to select a signal that is not being input, or disconnect the cables. When you play back an HDV-formatted tape with copyright protected signals or input HDV signals with copyright protection to the HDV/DV jack, pictures may be output in either 480i (NTSC) or 576i (PAL) format, regardless of the setting of [COMPONENT] of [VIDEO OUT] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu. The unit cannot up convert DVCAM/DV recordings to HDV at output. When [COMPONENT] of [VIDEO OUT] in the [IN/ OUT REC] menu is set to either [1080i/480i] or [1080i/576i], 1080/24p and 1080/30p video signals played back are converted to 1080/60i and 1080/25p video signals are to 1080/50i, and output from the COMPONENT OUT jacks.

Be sure that you set [HDV/DV SEL] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu to [AUTO] (default setting) before connecting the monitor to the unit with the i.LINK cable. If you change the setting after connecting the i.LINK cable, the monitor may not recognize the video signals correctly (page 50). To connect the unit to a monitor equipped with an i.LINK jack, you may need to set the monitor so that it recognizes the unit.
For details, refer to your monitors instruction manual.
When an i.LINK connection is made, the unit cannot output video or audio only.
If you connect the input connectors of the unit to the output connectors of a monitor, a humming noise may be generated or the image may be distorted. If these phenomena occur, use the INPUT SELECT switch to select a signal that is not being input, or disconnect the cables. To connect the i.LINK cable between a monitor and the unit, use an HDV or DV-compatible monitor. To play back a tape recorded in the HDV mode on a DVcompatible monitor, set [HDV t DV CONV] of [i.LINK SET] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu to [DVCAM] or [DV SP] before connecting the unit with the i.LINK cable.

To stop playback Press the STOP button on the unit. To pause playback Press the PAUSE button on the unit.
With HDV signals, interlace to progressive or progressive to interlace conversions cannot be made and be output via the HDV/DV jack. When HDV signals are down-converted to DVCAM (or DV) format during playback of HDV recorded in progressive and output to the HDV/DV jack, the signals are converted to the interlace system. 1080/24p and 1080/30p are converted to 480i, and 1080/25p to 576i, respectively (page 28). Some general consumer television sets are provided with a function to control equipment connected with the i.LINK cable. Such a function, however, may not work with the unit.
During playback, distortion of picture or noise in audio may occur at the portion where the recording format changes. You cannot play back an image recorded in DV (LP) mode on the unit. If the unit is playing a tape recorded with mixed video signals of the 60i system and 50i system, the picture and sound will be distorted on any portion of a tape where the recording system changes. During pause, a picture recorded on a tape in HDV format cannot be output from the HDV/DV jack.

HDV/DV: to record input signals from the HDV/ DV jack S VIDEO: to record input signals from the S VIDEO IN jack VIDEO: to record input signals from the VIDEO IN jack You need to adjust [HDV/DV SEL] (page 50) and [ REC MODE] (page 50) in the [IN/OUT REC] menu to the desired recording format.
For details on recording tape formats, see page 73.
When you select S VIDEO or VIDEO with the INPUT SELECT switch, set the audio mode by setting [AUDIO MODE] in the [AUDIO SET] menu (page 54). FS32K: Switches the audio mode to 4-channel mode FS48K: Switches the audio mode to 2-channel mode When recording a tape in DV (SP), you can set [AUDIO LOCK] in the [AUDIO SET] menu (page 54).
Do not change the INPUT SELECT switch setting during recording. If you change the setting of this switch during recording, recording will stop for several seconds. Recording will restart after the internal circuits are switched. During this time, no image is recorded. When DVCAM/DV signals which are input from the HDV/DV jack, or video signals which are from the VIDEO IN jacks or S VIDEO IN jacks, are output to each analog output jack, the distortion of the video signals occurs at the bottom of the TV monitor display due to the jitter. Depending on the display area of the TV monitor you have, the distortion of the picture may appear at the bottom of the screen. This is not a malfunction. Pictures may be distorted or not be displayed depending on the TV monitors. This will not appear while recording with the unit. Be aware of these phenomena when you connect other recording device via the analog jacks of the unit.
When signals are input from the HDV/DV jack, the audio mode is the same as the one used to input signals from the player.
Select the recording level adjustment mode using [AUDIO AGC] in the [AUDIO SET] menu.
You cannot adjust the recording level if you record signals input via the HDV/DV jack. For connecting the unit to a device that does not have an i.LINK jack, the sound is recorded on CH1/2 when the audio mode is set to [FS32K] (4-channel mode).
See Searching using the search function on page 34.
When the unit records HDV format images, it takes a while until recording starts. This delay, however, is not an error. ([STBY] is displayed on the screen and the REC indicator blinks until recording starts.)
Dubbing to Other Equipment
This section describes the connections and settings necessary to perform dubbing on other equipment, using the unit as a video player.
Connections for Dubbing
Connect the unit to the recorder as shown on the right using an i.LINK cable. The signal flow is automatically detected so you do not need to make separate connections for input and output. Also, by connecting the unit to an editing controller via the HDV/DV jack, you can configure a digital nonlinear editing system.
For connections of the editing controller and the unit, refer to the editing controller instruction manual.
To i.LINK jack Monitor
Before dubbing, you must set the format in which you want to output signals. Make [HDV/DV SEL] (page 50) and [i.LINK SET] (page 51) settings in the [IN/OUT REC] menu.
For details, refer to Major Differences among HDV1080i, DVCAM, and DV Formats on page 24. For details on i.LINK output formats, see page 72.
To dub a tape recorded in HDV format using the duplicate function on other units such as the DSR-25/ 45/50, select [DVCAM] in [HDV t DV CONV] of [i.LINK SET] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu.
There are some limitations to down converting a tape recorded in HDV format to DVCAM format.
For details, see i.LINK SET in the IN/OUT REC menu on page 51. (Continued)
If you output pictures in the playback pause mode when using an i.LINK connection, recorded images may appear distorted. When the tape is recorded in HDV format, the picture is output as a simplified picture during playback at various speeds (page 33). When using an i.LINK connection, you cannot output only pictures or sounds separately. When progressive HDV signals are played back and down converted into DVCAM (or DV) format to output to i.LINK connection, the signals are converted to interlace system. 1080/24p and 1080/30p are converted to 480i, and 1080/25p to 576i, respectively.
When connecting the unit to a recorder without an i.LINK jack, connect the two devices as follows. Set [COMPONENT] and [DOWN CONVERT] of [VIDEO OUT] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu (page 51) depending on the signals you wish to output.

Connecting the Unit to a Computer
Be sure to connect the i.LINK cable to the computer (editing machine) first and then connect it to the unit. If you connect the i.LINK cable to the unit first, it may cause the unit to malfunction because of static electricity. When the unit is connected to a computer equipped with an i.LINK jack and you intend to disconnect or reconnect the i.LINK cable, turn off the computer and pull out the plug of its power cord from the wall outlet beforehand. If you connect or disconnect the i.LINK cable while the computer is connected to the AC outlet, high-voltage current (8 to 40 V) is output from the i.LINK jack of the device to the unit, which may cause a malfunction. Before connecting the i.LINK cable, set [HDV/DV SEL] and [i.LINK SET] in the [IN/OUT REC] menu. If you perform the settings after connecting the cable, the computer (editing machine) may not recognize the unit correctly or may freeze. If you input or output signals in a format incompatible with the computer (editing machine), the computer may not recognize the unit correctly or may freeze. When set to EE mode, the unit outputs analog signals that are input from the HDV/DV jack to the computer. S VIDEO or VIDEO signals are output from the HDV/DV jack, according to the setting of the INPUT SELECT switch. To output the playback image from the unit through the HDV/DV jack only, set the INPUT SELECT switch to HDV/DV.
Before changing the setting, be sure to disconnect the i.LINK cable, or turn the other device off. If an i.LINK cable is connected when you change the setting, the video equipment may not recognize the signals correctly. If you select [AUTO], the screen turns off temporarily when HDV signals are switched to DVCAM/DV signals or vice versa. The video and audio also stops at the same time. For details on the i.LINK output and the recording tape format, see pages 72 and 73. Switches the recording mode between DVCAM and DV format (SP mode only). REC BDVCAM : Records in DVCAM format.

If the unit or cassette is brought directly from a cold to a warm location, moisture may condense inside or outside the unit or tape. If you use the tape or video heads in this condition, the tape may adhere to the head drum, and the video heads or the tape may be damaged, or a malfunction may occur.

Moisture condensation is likely to occur under the following conditions: The unit or cassette is brought from the cold outdoors to a warm indoor location. The unit or cassette is brought from the air-conditioned indoors to the hot outdoors. The unit is used in a place subject to cold currents from an air conditioner. When bringing the unit or cassette from a cold place to a warm place or vice versa, put it in a plastic bag and seal the bag tightly. After bringing it into the new place, leave the bag on for more than one hour, and remove the bag when the air temperature inside it has reached the temperature surrounding it.
