    Dear uk.re.video.digital users,

    I was hoping to get some advice from the group; I've tried all other
    avenues. Here's my situation:

    - I have a Sony PC101 that I bought in Ecuador to film my travels in
    South America. Now I've returned I want to mix my digital footage
    with vhs footage I have from previous trips.

    - The Sony PC101 has the capability, but not all of the products were
    shipped with the function enabled (apparently a licensing issue as
    DV-in qualifies as a VCR as well as camcorder), especially those sold
    outside Europe and America.

    - I was told by a guy in the Sony centre that i could probably get
    someone in tottenham court road to enable the function, but that I
    would effectively be infringing some licensing rights (hence they
    would not enable dv at the sony centre).

    My question to the group is twofold:

    1) Would I be transgressing any serious laws if I had my pc101 dv-in
    enabled?
    2) Where might I get this done?

    Your pointers, comments and suggestions gratefully received; I'm dying
    to get this project finished!

    Cheers,

    F

  2. Where does one get just the cable, which is I believe a 2.5 jack to go into
    Make one.
