I own a Canon MV750i DV Camcorder and a Panasonic DMR E65 DVD Recorder. The DVD recorder has a DV input for connecting DV Camcorders. In order to connect the camcorder and DVD recorder digitally I bought a 4pin to 4pin firewire cable. However when I connected the devices and selected DV input on the DVD recorder I was faced with nothing but a blank screen. I thought this might be due to the fact that I was using a cheap firewire cable and so bought a much more expensive cable. However, I still get no result when I connect the devices. I am beginning to wonder whether the DVD recorder is incompatible with non-Panasonic camcorders and that I might have wasted my money going for the E65 for the DV input when it is unable to connect digitally with my camcorder. Does anyone have any experience on connecting camcorders to DVD recorders via DV input?
