Sony DCR-PC350 A/V Connection Question

Hello to any of you users with the oldie but goldie Sony PC350 matchbook style camcorders. I have a relatively quick question: I know one can play recordings from the camera to an out source (such as a TV) using the A/V plug and appropriate cables, but can you *record* from an out source using the same set up? I have a thermal camera with an RCA video output that I would like to record from.

Thanks, folks.

Got it!

I had intuitively done what the instructions showed and got no results. Your message inspired me to try again.

I had the cam in "camera/tape" mode (which seemed logical to me) and accidentally slipped it into "edit/play" when playing around and...tahhh dahh, it worked.

I went back to the instructions to see placing it into "edit/play" mode isn't mentioned until you get to page 94 when discussing "dubbing to another tape", instructions I had ignored due it not being what I was looking to do. Or, I'm just blind...

Thanks for the reply! Without it, I may have given up.

It's funny how we interpret things.

Even better are the accidental "EUREKA!" moments... Been there, done that - too many times than I care to admit...

Glad to know it's working for you.
