Follow up, DVD burning with Sony VRD-VC20
« on: February 26, 2006, 06:59:06 pm »

I've been tinkering with the Sony DVD drive.

The stereo buss goes to 2 channels of a 1046, I tap off the 1046 into the RL ins of the drive.  I take an old Sony Handycam, and run the video into the video port of the Drive. Bummer, but audio won't record unless a video signal is present.
So the band gets to see a birds-eye view from FOH.

I've got a few nice recordings off the mixer.  The audio is quite open, and you can tell every mistake (both mine and the musos).

I've finally figered out a decoder for the audio that works with this drive, so I can strip it off the DVD.

The AC3 files that I'm left with are Signed PCM 16 bit 48Khz 1536kbps stereo.

A one hour set is usually about 180M HD storage AC3.
320M 44.1Khz MP3 results are what I use to store and burn to audio.  They're about 156M in size. 3 sets a night, 1/2 a GB.

FWIW,

1 out of 6 good burns give CRC errors when attempting to copy files to the hard drive.

1 out of 4 media won't finalize.
I have altered brands of media, attempted to finalize disks with advanced tools on a PC, but it just don't happen.

I anticipate a firmware update for this.
