I have a Sony Beta tape (NOT Betacam) on which there is about 5 minutes of my wedding, copied in 1978 from my 8mm cine camera. My Beta video player died years ago & I defected to VHS. I would like to copy my wedding onto a VHS tape. Can anyone help me, or direct me somewhere? I know there are commercial transfer companies, but the content/quality of the tape does not justify that sort of spending.

From: "FrancisX Gentile" <spylab@netzero.net>

I am about to open up a BVV 5 that I bought on ebay to clean away its glitchy picture and try a few things to waste time and prove I am a dork.1.New line in audio that bypasses micpreamp and bogus "line" attenuator2.Adjust the AFM pots so it has the same headroom "0vu" as the line tracks3.Optimize battery warning shut off levels4.some kind of playback tap5.Yuvsync outs

1.there are test points and a Pcboard to pcboard jumper point that make the line in pretty easy it seems. One test specs is at at 4db for a mic in at -30 tone, a -5db spec for a 4db tone input with line attenuator. The mackie outs are 0 and +4 so one of them should be bout right.(page 10-3 in manual) If 4db is 1.23 volts rms? could the preamps tolerate having that crammed backwards into them or must a cut off switch be included, it would be so much easier to hook onto test points TP102/202 and leave it at that.(why? you ask,I have recorded mixer straight to a edit deck and compared it with mixer to camera, camera blatantly worse) 2.Sony apparently messed up the AFM OVU so a magazine guru says practice is "10VU". If the camera were tweaked to 0vu mackie levels it would be easier to use the AFM as at least back up tracks as most of us have only UVW decks. I have no experience here and would have to run load to distortion tests and backoff 16 to 24db on the pots to match O on the mackie.3. Page 8-2, and page 1-4 deal with it and I am not sure what to do there.4. I guess a phono plug hangin out or holed into the viewfinder would get a black and white playback picture.go ahead, laugh at me.5. Bunch of bncs on skinny coax hangin out betweenthe camera and the dockable that send YUVsync out. I say this in the cameras at House of blues some years ago, the cameras decks were rolling at the same time the liveswitching was going on. might not want them clattering about in the field, wonder if it could be optional

Hello,I need to store some camera masters in house. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might be able to purchase a cabinet suitable for this. It would need to be fire proof and the shelves would have to be tall enough to accomodate Beta SP T-60.

Hi! I'm looking for VERY-VERY inexpensive second-handed BetacamSP (PAL)recorder. AMPEX, Thompson and BTS machines are more preferable because they are cheaper. E-mail me your offer with tech info (please include counters readings of your machine).Thanks in advance!Leoneed

Hi, does anybody have any 60 or 90 minute D2 tapes they no longer require, used once peferably. Also i am after an line ouput transformer for an old Ikegami TM-1415, although i think a transformer from later models would also work as they kept the same design. Thanks.

Looking into purchasing a BVW-D75PS but can find no literature on it here on the BetaCamPAL site. I believe that it is a BetaSP deck for PAL but has the option of outputting or inputting via serial digital and aes/ebu digital audio signals. Basically, a glorified BetaSP with a digital I/O. Does anyone have experience with this deck to give me some feedback (pros, cons, problems, etc...) Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

never having done this I hope someone can assist.

Using Digidesign ProTools I have mixed audio for layback to a Sony UVW1800P (PAL Beta). The video must remain intact.

How do I record *only* the audio ? (that is, arm the stereo audio tracks for recording only and leave the video untouched).

Is there a way to do this from the front panel of the Betacam machine ? Do I need software in ProTools in order to do this (I have installed the Machine Control option but as yet haven't seen any options to arm only the audio tracks for recording).

Would most appreciate any advice by email.RegardsPeter
