    Hi there,

    Just managed to get hold of one of these in brand new condition fully boxed for £150. But I'am a little confused as to what the Firewire connection is for. Can you use it to transfer VHS/SVHS/DVHS to my computer, or transfer video content from my computer to the DVHS player ?

    Any advice would be great.

    Many thanks Guys

    From memory (which may be pants) the European D-VHS decks - which I think the DR10000 was - only used their Firewire connections to allow you to copy material from DV Camcorders onto D-VHS in decent quality (i.e. not reducing it via a poor quality S-video or composite connection)

    It is an input only, not an output on the European model AIUI.

    In the US the Firewire connectivity on D-VHS VCRs is also used to allow you to record and replay HD MPEG2 transport streams carried over firewire from set top boxes and integrated TVs. This wasn't an issue with the SD-only European models, so it wasn't a facility provided on European models.
