See page 35 of your manual. This camcorder can play recorded images and video footage to a TV using the supplied cables. The same cable can plug into an AV/USB convertor enabling the digital recording of what you have recorded to your computer.
Sony and the other media suppliers do not recommend re-recording over any digital tapes, including MiniDV. Re using tapes can lead to dropouts and errors after only a few times. With MiniDV prices so inexpensive these days (in the grand scheme of things), is there any reason NOT to use new tape? Also, many companies keep all their MiniDV tapes as a kind of stock footage archive. You never know when you might need a shot that you have already filmed, and it saves considerable time and money to pick the tape off the shelf.

According to the manufacturer, this particular model appears to allow filming in NTSC format only. Unfortunately this means that in order to play any video footage recorded on this camcorder, the device being used to play the footage back would also need to be NTSC-compliant.
Please keep in mind that while some electronics sold in Europe may be both NTSC and PAL-compliant, it cannot be guaranteed that footage filmed using your camcorder will be compatible with all multi-format model devices.
There is no problem on your camera, DCR-HC19E is PAL system(European system) DCR-HC20 is NTSC(American system). Are you in US or Europe? I think your TV is NTSC, cause the tape recorded on DCR-HC19E you played has no color. To confirm, connect your HC20 to TV in camera mode, not recording yet, just look at the TV as your monitor, If its in color, no problem, just erase the old video recorded on the HC19E, but if its important to you, you can convert it to NTSC using a PC. thanks
