Here are my weekly (or whenever I feel like it) random-general tips.
1. The Wacom tablet will only work on XG80/XG55 to XG80/XG55, not to ANYTHING else - no other manufacturers, no other Sony systems.
2. When you are finished recording a session, use the menu to stop the recording, MAKING SURE you wait for the light underneath the memory stick slot to stop blinking BEFORE you remove the stick; (only takes about 5 seconds).
3. Recording capabilities: The PCS-1, and the TL- series can only record a still image to the memory stick. The G50 and G70 can record audio and video, but no H.239. The XG80 and XG55 can record audio, video and H.239.
4. The reason the XG80/XG55 takes so long to boot up is because it is in a “green” mode, i.e it is using practically NO power in sleep mode so has to boot up from practically power-off condition.5. The XG80 is the only Sony system officially certified as “SIP” capable, and only to either the NEC or the ASTERIX server.
