Can I simultaneously record to mini dv or hdv tape while also capturing the information on my laptop hard drive? If so, what happens when the tape stops recording after 60 minutes? Can I continue to record to the hard drive while changing tapes? I realize this may vary from camera to camera, and would like to know people’s experience with various options. I am particularly interested in knowing if this is possible with the Canon HV 20, as I am strongly considering purchasing it.
