We have both; and SRW-5800 and an SRW-5500. At present our workflow is to patch the 5800 to the 5500 and from there into the DVD player to record a clean copy before sending the tape out to the broadcaster. I'm told there is no way to record directly into the DVD deck straight from the 5800 without the addition of the SD conversion card ($15,000 or so).
Does anyone know of a reasonable work-around or am I making a proposal to purchasing..?
Please and thank you for any advice you may offer.
