Question about Sony GV-HD700 HDV VCR

1 Answer

I can't initialize on FCP

Hi, Glad you're here. I can't initialize my GV-HD700 to Final Cut Pro. I have a tape in the VTR, but the Log and Capture window tells me it can't initialize, and to make sure the deck is connected. It is, with Firewire. A direct connection to the front of my Dual Core Intel Power Mac. All other connections were taken off the front of the Mac, and I started in many ways: 1. with the VTR hooked up and on with an already running Mac 2.  with the Mac off and the VTR hooked up and on before turning on the Mac 3. with the Mac off and the VTR unplugged, turning the Mac on, and then replugging the VTR Firewire back into the Mac.
The HD settings in FCP are good, as far as I can tell. The VTR's are also.  I'm out of ideas, and would love some advice. I've got to get up and running again! Thank you, Shari Dyer

If you are capturing HD, go into the menu > IN/OUT REC > i.LINK CONV and set it to off, and A/V->DV OUT to off. Go into FCP and go to the File Menu and select "easy setup". In the easy setup menu set the "Format" to "HDV" and set "Use" to HDV - 1080i60. Click "Setup". Now go to File > Log and Capture (command-8). You're now set to capture. Just queue your tape and hit "Capture Now" or set in and out points and capture "Clip".

If you want to capture SD footage, then on your Sony unit, go to the menu and set the i.LINK CONV to "on". In the easy setup menu you will want to set "Format" to "NTSC" and "Use" to DV-NTSC".

Hi,
Try to playback with other tape recorded earlier from other camera or VTR .If other tapes are palying properly without any glitches then it might be the problem with this recording.

Audio Problem with Firewire


The input select switch on the front of the AJ-D230H needs to be in the "OPTION" position, not "LINE". That may help if all the other settings are correct. You will also have to make sure that you have selected the right codecs for the deck that you are using in the software. I am speaking as a Final Cut Pro user so only offer this as a suggestion as these are the things that work from out of Final Cut.

Good luck. It can be very frustrating, but awesome when it all comes together and works right!!!

Pass Thru, Analog Signal Converter How-To


I wonder if this is a MacroVision problem. Try this; take a VCR tape that you have recorded from the tv, try to record a commercial and then play this tape through your setup, I bet you it works. (Now take what I say next in the sense that it is given and that is as advice)When you are trying to push signal that you get from an analog source from the VCR by law that signal has to be encoded with macrovision to ensure that the signal can not be copied. Now the funny thing is you can transfer tapes which have not been encoded this is normal, what you need is a piece of equipment that removes Macrovision, here is a link that might help: http://www.regioncodefreedvd.com/copyeliminator.html also look up the company SIMA
