Can't control DSR-45AP using Avid Medialogger

I'm having problems controlling my DSR-45AP deck using Avid Medialogger. I'm trying to control it using RS-232 as its plugged straight into the PC com port.

I've set it to RS-232 mode and set it to remote yet the AVID Media Logger software can't find it. I can control other decks such as J3's using the Media Logger using software so the problem is with the deck.

I will point out that I only have a deck template for a dsr-45 deck within the logging software. Is there a particular setting I can configure within AVID?

thanks

Beren

SOURCE: Sony DSR-45 Lost Firewire Signal

Port's fried for sure -- that's a classic Firewire Port Burnout problem. Could be a cheap repair if you can take it to someone who's not afraid to get their hands dirty (soldering, perhaps). I don't know how integrated the port is to the unit (like on a laptop) so good luck!

SOURCE: Motor boat sound

This is caused by a grounding issue, an audio oscillation is being feed back through the ground. This is an indication that one of your units is not properly grounded or improperly isolated. Check your grounds and make sure everything is grounded if your system is a common ground system. If the system is an isolated system, make sure everything is properly isolated. the problem is your system is somewhere in between these two states and that is what is causing this problem.

SOURCE: My deck currently will not log and capture footage into my Final Cut Pro.

The problem is that you have a son of a biscuit.

DSR-11 stopped outputting anything


I have almost the same problem!  Did you ever figure out what happened?  Here's what I had posted yesterday:
Tech Friends - 
I recently got a non-sony tape stuck in my DSR-11 (bummer) and was forced to extricate it using the "my tape got stuck in the DSR - 11" article's method of removing the top cover and highest level of circuit board:  
http://www.fixya.com/support/t178954-tape_stuck_inside

This worked for the tape removal, however, upon replacing the circuit board and cover, the deck no longer seems to be able to do anything with video or audio.  It still communicates with FCP via its firewire connection (ie FCP is able to control FF, rewind, play functions, etc), but it seems unable to read or write video.  Also, we use it as an A - D converter box between a Beta SP deck and thecomputer (actually, this is the deck's main function here).  Even when I switch it to the correct setting (video) and check to make sure that everything is plugged in correctly (trust me, I checked, it is), I get the "there is no video here" error message. 
Also, after trouble shooting the drive for a little while, I pressed the "reset" button the the rear.  I'm not sure if that matters one way or the other.  I don't think it does (that just resets the time code, right?) 
The question is, would this be a case of "fried firewire jack" such as it seems so many of us DSR - 11 owners have?  Could I have done any frying myself by not having myself properly grounded when opening the shell?  Is there anyone who knows the answer?  Help!  I can't digitize my video!
Comment by eltriunfo, posted on Sep 05, 2008 The Plot Thickens... 
Okay, I've checked all of the FCP settings and played with the deck more and it's only confused me more.  I can now get it to not only be controlled by the computer, but actually print audio and video to mini dv tape.  Also, I can record from my Beta SP deck to miniDV tape in the deck (connected through the "video" input on the rear of the unit).  In other words, the deck seems to function perfectly doing everything except for converting analogue to digital passively.  The way we always did it before was by keeping the input switch on the face of the unit on "video" and log and capturing in FCP with it as a noncontrolable ntsc device.  This makes me understand it less.  It means to me that it is not a broken switch, it's not a broken firewire port, everything works perfectly EXCEPT for using the unit as an A-D converter.  What the dill-yo?  If anyone in the world could offer any insight as to what could be causing this I would greatly appreciate it!

How do I record just VO on the AVID? I can't find the tool to disable deck control for VO record only


In the Capture tool the Icon that looks like a deck. If you click that till it has a circle with a redline through it that disable deck control for recording VO.

Avid Xpress Pro - AVID crashes when deck is turned on


This sounds like a fatal error out side of avid settings, you're going to need to do an avid reinstall to replace any currupted files. Just back up your media capture and .bin / avb files. Does xpress let you create an omfi file just import that rather than relinking?
