Sony DCR-TRV460 video8 playback?

Discussion in 'Sony' started by Paul Westwell, Sep 19, 2004.

  1. But would you not expect a Sony digital 8 to play video 8 tapes recorded on
    a Sony camcorder?

    My source camcorder is a Sony CCD-F500E (video8) and I was thinking of
    possibly purchasing a Sony DCR-TRV460 (digital8 with Hi8 and Video8
    playback)

    I would be interested if anyone has used the later for playing back video8
    tapes.

    Regards,

    Paul

    You would expect that a D8 would play back 8/Hi8 and, in the beginning, that
    was the case. Now it's buyer beware. Over that last few years, Sony has
    (arbitrarily & without warning, it seems) dropped the ability to do this on
    low-end models. Exactly the way that low-end miniDV Camcorders no longer
    offer pass-through.
