Just bought myself a Panny E50 recorder and so far have been very happy with it. The only minor problem I have is that when I'm recording from video via AV4 (or anything else other than my Sat decoder) the picture is fine but there is no sound whilst recording. I can play the recording back and its fine with good picture and sound, the problem only occurs during the actual recording process. Not a show stopper but a pain whilst trying to transfer my videos to DVD, could do with hearing whats going on. Other than that, everything else is fine! Anyone got any idea if I need to change a setting somewhere to enable me to monitor the ousnd whilst recording?
