Hope I'm not the first one to be stumped by this but I couldn't find the answer in the archives.
If the firewire plug is connected to the dv in/out on the XL1s, the analog jacks behind the battery seem to be disabled. Is there a way to input an analog a/v signal from a vhs vcr and at the same time capture that to my nle without first recording to the mini dv tape in the xl1s and then playing that back?
In other words, can I use the camera as an analog to digital converter without first making a dv tape? Thanks.
