How can i buy all the cables to the sony vrd-mc6


Yeah most common problem that consumers encounter. Recently I adquire one for my production company. yeah, I search around and the best site was amazon.com. Depending in your camera model you would have to chec if is rca videos plugs type or Dv to Dv, USB, or IILink, in my case from my Sony camera to the Sony recorder I use the Dv to Dv. Just chec your specifications to make sure.
Amazon.com has one of the most wide variety in cables that I have found in the internet one place and affordable.

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.

With sony dvdirect vrd-mc5, can I burn pictures from my computer


Yes and no... you can not hook it up directly to your computer and burn copies of pix. You can however transfer your pictures to a memory card (SD, MS or CF) and then put that in the VRD-MC5 and burn your pix.

Hope this helps!
