Just had to jump through hoops to record into the analogue inputs of the DV700. I tried 2 different VCR's and ended up having to buy a new Panasonic VHS deck. Worth my while, because I've loads to do. The camera seems to be quite particular about the stability of the video output from the VHS. Results digitised straight through to PC via firewire and burnt to DVD very good so far, although time consuming.
