Question about Sony Handycam DCR-TRV350 Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Digital Video Output

I have had and used this camera for almost 4 yrs., though not heavily. It has been used mostly for pass-through of analog to DV for DVD archiving. I recently captured an hour of recorded video with no problems. The next night, I tried another hour of recorded video and while the audio is OK, the video during capture is dark, almost black. Playback of captured video has exactly the same appearance as during capturing. I use the i.Link but the same happens when using the USB streaming. Analog output to a TV is fine. I have tried another i.Link with the same results. Sony wants only $211.00 flat rate service. Thanks, Cyco

Re: Digital Video Output

Repairs up to 50 % of replacement cost are reasonable , if warranty is same as new ( if warranty can be extended - resale improves ) ;

Pass through

Convert and/or record any analog PAL video source to digital video via the analog inputs. Analog PAL video can also be passed through the Digital Handycam® camcorder directly into a PC via the i.LINK® interface in real-time for easy PC editing of your analog footage

You can use an USB analog to digital converter for the analog outputs or the firewire/DV/iLink connection for the digital output, with the capturing software you can then have your videos on files or disks.

Bad DV Out Port

There are settings like on pg 211 of your manual you might have to switch from analog out to DV out. I bet thats it. There are other options around pg 221 for USB output settings but I didn't see any conflict but it doesn't mean there won't be some.
Good Luck. Leave a comment if you need more info . Just in case here's where to get a copy of the manual:

I'm no expert, but I don't think you can do that with just the video camera alone. First you'd have to pass your video onto a computer using dv motion studio and then you can put that output file onto a sd card. I don't think it would be possible to play that video off the card on the camera. Hope that helps

How to use the MV6401 as an AD converter

There are more direct way of transferring VHS to digital format (MPG, AVI, etc. There are now cheap video capture devices like TV tuner, or a video capture card tha connects to USB 2.0 port. However if you still want to use this camera, this ?s what you need to do. 1. Connect the camera to the PC. Most MiniDV cams have an iterface called i-link, firewire or IEEE-1394. If your computer has no shuch interface, you have to install. 2. Record the analog video to the miniDV tape. 3.CApture the recorded tape to the PC. You need to video capture software to do this. You may need to convert the format to the format that you prefer. 4. Burn the vdeo to DVD, you will need a burner and video autthoring softare such as nero.

Playback on external device.

The SV-AV100 and the SV-AV50 come with an A/V cradle that allows you to connect to external devices for recording and playback. The SV-AS10 and SV-AV25 are not equipped for this operation.
