    I use my Sony DCR-TRV310 DigiCamcorder as a webcam for my mac. Unfortunatly, even when in use (Like webcaming people. Not when using it for filming) it shuts off during a certain period of time, even when hooked up to the charger. There is no option to turn this off in the menu, is there any other way?



    Please excuse bad spelling, if there is any.:)

    If there's a tape in there take it out... I know on a few camcorders I've used, if there's a tape in then the camcorder will go into standby after a few minutes to protect the tape heads....

    HTH
