Question about Sony DVDirect VRD-MC3 DVD Recorder
Hello I have a Sony VRD-MC5 and have an Sony DCR-TRV27 MiniDV handycam. I have been trying to dub the MiniDV tapes to DVD. While using the DV input, I get an error "Waiting for Input signal". The firmware is the latest and I use a Sony Handycam. Is there anything wrong with the settings or it is a product issue? I could dub using Composite Video/Audio and S-Video+Audio cables.
I understand DV input would give the best resolution. Please advice.
The same happend to me. The camera contains informations of videofiles, which are no more present on the camera (were deleted from a computer). You are not able to record in full disk mode, or any other mode, which includes these videos. These missing files can be easily recognised, as the camcorder is not able to play them. Try to get rid of these "files", or ommit them from the recording list.

I have the same problem currently. I have successfully recorded to the Sony CM5 in the past from my DVR, but no longer can. I have Comcast and wonder if they have changed the DVR firmware and blocked output. Also some broadcasts have something in the signal to stop recording. I got half of my program done, and can't record the rest on DVD. I will try to DVR local news, then record to the Sony, to see if it's a signal issue or something with the Sony. I haven't tried to record from a VCR.

maybe the circuit is bad why not try to trace the wire to see where the fault is from but i think its the wire maybe its broken inside.

Check video input setting to DVD recorder...should be set to "External" or "Line". This should activate the video input jacks on the rear of the RDR-VX530 and allow it to "see" your Sony handycam.
