DVDirect recorder. waiting for input signal? It shows the video on the screen but i push the record button and it stops and says waiting for input signal?! help!!!!


HAD the same problem! Called sony and it was fixed for me. I had a/v wires hooked up from my camcorder and from my vhs. I could see the video on the DVDirect screen. I would hit record and screen would go black and say "waiting on input signal". The fix: 1. turn the unit on. 2. Hold the on/off button for 30 SECONDS. (YEP, believe it or not) When I hooked the wires back up and did the same thing I had been doing. IT WORKED!!!! Hope it works for you!

I need to transfer my 8mm tapes to dvd...


I assume that it is Sony DCR-TRV250 camcorder.
Go to camera menu and enable USB stream, like what Sony DV Direct says about change usb settings.

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.

"Invalid Video Found" HDR-CX7 and VRD-MC5 DVD Recorder


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.

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!
