switching to HD...how?
on Jun 21, 2012 at 11:53:34 pm

I inherited a Panasonic AG-HVX200P DVCPRO HD P2 that I believe is 4-5 years old. It's set to shoot in SD and works great with mini DV tapes but when I cycle thru the menu under REC FORMAT the only options are in 480i. I've gone thru the menu carefully but I can't find the HD mode. I see where it allows you to choose letterbox but it stays in 480i.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you are attempting to record to tape, it will only record in SD. To record in HD, you need to record to a P2 card and set the media switch to "P2".

On the back of your HVX, on the bottom left side, there should be a button that says "Tape" on one side and "Card" on the other.

Hit that button and it should switch over to "Card" mode, which will give you the HD recording options.

It should also be noted, that you will need to have P2 card in order to record to HD, since the HVX doesn't support HDV tapes.

Good luck.

Also, I suggest getting Barry Green's HVX & HPX Book, and/or the HVX Boot Camp dvds, if you intend to use the HVX extensively.
