Selects whether to record internal time code or external time code while the unit records the
signals input via the DV jack in DVCAM format.
INTERNAL : Records the time code generated by the internal time code generator. (The
value of the time code or user bits depends on the settings of other menu items, such as
TC PRESET, UB PRESET, or TC MAKE.)
EXTERNAL: Records the time code with video and audio signals input via the DV jack.
• When you set REC MODE on the VTR SET menu to DV SP, this item cannot be used.
Even if this item is set to EXTERNAL, when you set REC MODE on the VTR SET menu to
DV SP, the setting becomes invalid and the unit records the internal time code.
• When this item is set to EXTERNAL, the INPUT SELECT selector on the front panel is set
to DV, and no signal is input via the DV jack, or the software of the editing controller does
not output a time code, if you start recording, bars (– –:– –:– –:– –) are recorded as time
code. At the point that the input of a signal begins, the time code of that signal will be
• When this item is set to EXTERNAL, if you input time code to the DV jack that is not
continuous or does not advance correctly, the value of the recorded or displayed time
code may not be equal to the actual value of the input one. If you use a tape with this
problem, you may not be able to perform search or edit, depending on the devices you

Selects the time code when you start recording.
REGEN : The time code value is set to continuous time code from the one already

PRESET: The time code starts from the value set in TC PRESET on the TC/UB SET
(page 61 (GB))
Selects the advancement mode (counting up).
REC RUN : Time code value advances only while recording.
FREE RUN: Time code value advances even when the unit is not recording. (This mode is
used to set the current time as the initial time code value, or to synchronize the internal
time code to an external time code.)
• If you set the advancement mode to FREE RUN, the time code will be updated by the
internal clock when the power is off. Therefore, when you turn on the unit again, the time
code may have been delayed or advanced somewhat.
• If the internal backup battery is exhausted, the time code of the FREE RUN setting is

Selects the frame mode.
AUTO : Automatically sets the frame mode in accordance with the inserted cassette. (If
nothing is recorded on the tape, the mode is set to the non-drop frame mode. If the unit
cannot read the frame mode correctly in the tape, the unit will use the frame mode that
was set in the last position it was able to read correctly on the tape. If you remove the
cassette, the mode of the last position it was able to read correctly is cleared and the
mode is set to the non-drop frame mode. If TC MAKE is set to PRESET, the mode is
also set to the non-drop frame mode.)
DF: Selects the drop frame mode.
NDF: Selects the non-drop frame mode.
• This menu is displayed only for the DSR-45.
• Regardless of this item setting, the frame mode is set to drop frame when you record in
