    I cannot for the life of me remember what settings I need to select in the menu so as to use my MX8 for analog to digital conversion, (Svideo in,and red/white phono to 3.5mm jackplug in, firewire out I seem to remember.
    Anyone got this excellent camcorder and knows this ? Now also lost the manual. :mad:

    Found it !!!
    set about sorting out all the crud that PCs and life creates, many subject piles and hours later, have just found the sheet I need. (needed a sort out anyway I guess :roll: )
    Answer was, for anyone else needing this :-
    in VCR mode menu, set AV to in/out
    then below that set DV output to ON
    use Svideo lead and red/white phono to jackplug for input, use firewire for output to PC.

    Now wondering if just playing off a recording (made lens to tape as it were) from the MiniDV tape onto PC to be made into DV-AVI by Premiere also requires DV output set to ON. ?

    anyone ?

    Cheers
