The ssc duel records with a time signature that allows you to go back to a specific time to view the information on the harddrive. on the front of the dvr there are three buttons and the large round multi button. If you have the unit with vhs backup, then you just press the center small button on the front pannel and you'll get the menu that either allows you to select a time group to watch, or put in the time you want the playback to start. after you start the playback, then you can control the playback with the controls on the large multi function button. If your trying to play back the VHS tape, GOOD LUCK!!!!.....If you have the newer model without the vhs backup...then you have to press the stop button on the large multi function button...andthen press the center small button and then the other small button to the right...then you should be at the menu to play back the video either by selected time/date..or by half hour increments....good luck!!!

Foot pedal FF or Rewinds when pressing Play

It's possible that there's a broken wire in the cable that connects the foot control to the machine. This usually happens near the plug that plugs into the machine, or by the end that goes into the foot control.

You can usually duplicate it if you put the auto-backspace up a bit and then hold down the play pedal on the foot control. While holding down the play pedal, try moving the cable near the machine or near the foot control in a circular motion. If the machine stops, rewinds or fast forwards, then odds are that the problem is with the cable.

DVR won't play

I hae a Motorola 6412 that had this problem. I turned it off, then unplugged it for 30 seconds. After turning it on I had to wait 1-2 minutes before I could acces the DVR, but it work now.

I got a phone call from GVI. Here's the scoop:

The SSCDVR only supports up to a 128MB memory stick. This was the highest capacity available when the SSCDVR was manufactured.

Further, the memory stick must have the standard Sony interface. This isn't to say that it has to be a Sony, just that it has to have that standard. Lexar and ?Magicgate? are other possibilities.

I don't think anything that says "duo" or "pro" and comes with an adapter sleeve will work. It has to be the "old", full-size stick.

GVI tech support says that the stick will hold 2-6 minutes of video in an encrypted format. It will save as an executable that can be viewed on your computer. If you need more than the number of minutes that the memory stick can hold, you need to sneakernet the card to your computer, copy the file there, then take the stick back to your DVR, erase the stick there, and load on the next batch. Repeat until you have all the data you need.

As a workaround, I use a VCR or DVD burner to back off audio and video. I plug an S-vid cable from the back of the svid-out of the DVR to the s-vid in on the video device. I run an RCA cable from the audio out on the DVR to one of the audio ins on the video device. (I lost my mono to stereo RCA cable, but it seems to work fine this way anyhow.)

Then you just get the DVR to the right place for the event you want to back up, hit record on your video device, and you are good to go!

SHR-1040 - rewind from end of footage??

I'm wondering if the firmware can be upgraded as that might be the easiest thing. My other thought was that putting the hard drive into a PC and trying to view the video might be a way to see it.

All of a sudden some of my tapes will not playback and others will??

I have been experiencing the same problem with my Panasonic PV-GS120. I don't know the root cause or real solution, but I found if I keep playing the tape, rewind->play->rewind->play, eventually I would get the image back normal. I think I would try to clean up header with a header cleaner to see if it helps or not. If not, I plan to submit a request to Panasonic support to check out possible solution. Good luck.
