Difficulty Dubbing/Downconverting from 720P (Varicam) to DVCAM

I am using a 1200A to downconvert 720P footage. The downconvert works fine as I tested it loading it into FCP and the footage is fine DV25 just what it should be. However, when I take the same output (firewire) and plug it into my DSR-1500, the iLink light does not lock up, it just blinks.

I tested the DSR-1500 by loading firewire directly from a DV Camera (VX 2000) and the DSR-1500 locks up to it just fine.

So, best I can tell there is something the DSR-1500 just does not like about the firewire output of the AJ-1200A. However, I tested both machines and the downconverted output of the 1200A loads just fine into FCP (DV NTSC Easy Setup) and the DSR-1500 locks on immediately to the output of the VX2000.

Anybody have a clue what's up?

David,

Just a guess, as I have not had occassion to do DV downconvert (only straight digitize into FCP and downconvert to Beta via SDI output) but you might take a look at menu item #880 DIF SPEED.

Default is 0002 S400 (400Mbps); I'd try lower speed settings of S100 (0000) or S200 (0001). I think thetransfer speed in the default setting must be too high for the Sony DV deck!
