Hey guys, just got back my JVC HM DH30000U back from Jots, and though it powers on now, it has a set of new problems. Let me just start off by saying that I didn't have ANY of these problems before sending the deck into Jots for a dead psu repair. The machine will playback and record VHS/SVHS tapes fine. The problem is when trying to record/playback DVHS tapes. I tried the last recording made on the machine, and though the image was fine, the audio would not output through the analog L & R. I heard breaks in the audio, and at times it was intermittent, but it would go away and be left with no audio. The only way that I got the audio to work was through the firewire port inputed into my DT100U. Next, I decided to try to record on the machine from the IEE1394. First off, I hooked up my DT100U to the front firewire input, and it wouldn't recognize it at all. However, I did get it to recognize it from the firewire input on the back of the unit. Next, I recorded the video signal, and when I went to play it back, I got "Wait a Minutes Calibrating... . What could be wrong with the unit?
Also wanted to add that when using an analog source for input, Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64, via S Video and analog L & R, I inserted a DVHS tape into the unit, and when it recognized it was a DVHS tape, the audio went out. When I either ejected the tape, or if I set it to SVHS mode, the audio came back. What does this mean?
