Can anyone who has all of the parts hook up the firewire output from a camcorder that has a firewire out (such as Mini-DV by Sony) and see if it records OK to the Panasonic VCR (PV-HD1000). Is there any chance this will work? Marvin

Best, Marv

I tried this some time ago and my recollection is that the machines don't talk to each other. This coincides with the statements in the PV-HD1000 user manual. The technical explanation is that the PV-HD1000 uses a lower data rate, different packet format, and different command set.

An analogy is that the IEEE1394 is a like a hose. You send many different fluids through a hose, the usage depends on the equipment at either end of the hose. Same with the 1394 connection; many different formats and speeds of data are possible depending upon the equipment at either end.

Thanks Richard. I wanted to know for sure and I thank you for having tested it out and reporting your results. Marvin

The new JVC HM-DR10000 DVHS will digitally dub DV to MPEG via the firewire interface.
This deck apparently has many awesome features which, however, does not include HS (HD) recording speed.

It takes fewer megabytes per second to record HDTV mpeg than to record DV. THis is because DV is a "less compressed" format than OTA HDTV mpeg.

When dubbing DV to DVHS, either they have increased the data rate of of the newly announced DVHS to beyond what the PVHD1000 does, or they further compress it from DV to mpeg so that it takes a lower data rate.

The HM-DR10000 contains an MPEG encoder which will work with both analog and DV datastream; thus it supports speeds up to STD only.
