SOURCE: Recording from DVR.

There is a firmware update posted on the Sony support web site. It takes care of the copy protect error. However, i have encountered an error where the recorder doesn't identify the input signal. It posts the message "waiting for input signal." I have no solution for this one yet.

Hi,
I had a similar no audio issue when using the I-Link connector and 8mm camcorder. I found that if i selected "Manual" rather than "Automatic" (copy everything) that I got good audio as well as video.

I have tried using a later model Sony miniDV camcorder with A to D passthrough from my 8mm Sony camcorder that I get better Video color using RCA cables directly from the 8mm Camcorder but better audio from the I-Link passthrough above.

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.

SOURCE: Motorola VIP1216 DVR and Sony VRD-MC5 Connections for Recording?

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.
