knowing it had galactic miles on it
That is sure that this recorder to 7 days, and almost 24 Std.gelaufen is.
It is worth no repair.
Here was the successor model JVC BR-S522 + 622 + 822
A JVC BR-S525 had more than 2000 SFr. cost to repair .......
[inclusive my work]
so I disposed of him ... sent over Jordan;-)
but none displays the image as clean as the JVC BR-S811-E
Yes ... all mentioned here can only play in SP "Standard Play" movies.
In general, you can access the settings ......
Back on JVC BR Connection "Monitor Out" cable to connect to a control monitor ....... Read manual ... and the settings properly adjusted.
As the drum and capstan are displayed hours.
With a better consumer recorder plus AVT 8710 You'll certainly be better satisfied.
