Question about Fostex MR16HD/CD Digital Recorder

1 Answer

Guitar Input Level

I have recently bought the MR16 in order to record guitar on it, but when I hook up my guitar, foot pedal, and amp I cannot record anything. I have tried and got it to record some, but I don't know how I did that and even then it was very hard to hear. I really could use some help on how to set up a guitar, amp and foot pedal so I can record music.

How do I copy(to DVD) my SVHS tapes using my JVC MV-40

It all depends on what kind of connections you are using. In most cases you set the dvd recorder to input 1. Then use the yellow,red & black or white out puts from the vhs player to hook up to the number 1 input on the dvd recorder. hit play on the vhs & record on the dvd recorder at the same time. Do not forget to put a blank dvd in the dvd recorder? also for the best copy set your dvd recorder to XP for a 1 hour recording for a 1 hour or longer recording set the dvd recorder speed to SP. You should have the dvd recorder hooked up to a Tv so you can monitor the recording progress. This should work out as long as the recording you are copying is not copy protected. Good luck.

I'm getting a message "Camcorder not connected. I can't program any recordings

When this recorder reads 'not connected to camcorder' you are simply accessing the recorder's 'DV' input on the front panel of recorder. This 'DV' input is used with DV Camcorders, thus the message.

Simply hit the 'AUX' button on the remote control to access the recorders other inputs. It will cycle between-TUNER>>AV1>>AV2>>DV.

Depending on what you want to access or view and where they are hooked up to the recorder. The "Tuner" will access either your over the air digital channels or your basic cable channels when hooked up through the 'UHF/VHF' input on the rear panel.AV1 is input 1 on the back of the recorder. AV2 is the input on the front of the recorder. DV allows for a Digital Video Camcorder to be hooked up to recorder using a 'Firewire'.

I have the same problem with the same model LG, bought a year ago. It only gives the 'Record-blocking signals detected' message when there's something I really want to record. Over the winter it was Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Today it is the British Open Golf from Turnberry. We are out tomorrow, for the last day of play and can't record!!!!! It seems this player has build in blocking signals even to channels we can normally watch. Any help would be appreciated - before tomorrow, July 19th.

you may have the outputs hooked up correctly however you may need to set the inputs to the selected type of cable you are using. S video 1 cable or video input witch is an rca adapter yellow in color. you will find these setting in the "setup section" on the remote set up button will get you there and then input or source.

Fostex mr16 eq/presets

In short - No. The Eq menu is the only way to affect the frequency levels on the inputs, but if you select stereo buss and listen to the inputs, you can hear the effect of each Eq on the relevant input.

Recording Snow

If you hook your VCR up to the RCA jacks on the front of the DVD recorder, push 002 on the remote to use the front input jacks. (001 if you hook your VCR up to the rear input jacks)

Push record on the DVD recorder, and push Play on the VCR.
(Pg. 35 in the manual)

When you push play on the VCR, you should be able to see the movie being played on your TV. If you cannot, make sure your RCA cables are good and hooked up correctly.

That's all you have to do, so if it's not recording I would try to take the unit back for an exchange.

The Panasonics are very picky about the media ie brand and quality of the DVD blank. Try a different brand and see if that helps.
