Sony pd170 timecode preset problem


Standard Member
Hi I am having trouble setting the timecode preset at the start of shooting on my sony pd170. I am shooting several tapes per event and want to set in a time code that will display different numbers at the start of each tape.

Example 01:0:0:0:0 tape1
02:0:0:0:0 tape 2
03:0:0:0:0 tape 3

I am unable to enter the preset option when i go to the menu when the camera is on dv sp mode, however when i change it to dvcam mode it gives me the option to set the timecode, why is this?
