When i crash record and play from the timeline, eveything is groovy but,
when i use edit to tape(assemble edit), the record tape records digital artifacts(small different colored blocks, and the condition light goes orange and red.
I can't do a final output (timecode sensitive), and i'm stuck
i saw a post by the infamous Bob Zelin saying to switch menu option 309 from auto 1 to auto 2, on a 2000 series deck, i did it to my hdw-1800 deck and what do you know...problem appears to be remedied. Thanks Bob wherever you are.
Does anyone know what that menu option does or have any ideas of anything else that could trigger that problem?
309 SERVO/AV REFERENCE
SEL Select the servo reference signal.
AUTO1: During recording, the input video signal is used as the servo reference
signal. During playback, the signal selected by F2 (REF VID) in function menu
page P03: VID PROC is used as the servo reference signal. If the signal
selected by the F2 (REF VID) in function menu page P03: VID PROC is not
connected, an internal reference signal is used.
AUTO2: When F2 (REF VID) in function menu page P03: VID PROC is set to
“REF”, and any of F2 (INS TC), F3 (INS CUE), and F5 (ASSEMBLE) to F10
(INS A4) in function menu page P07: E.PRESET is lit, the reference signal for
video/audio signal processing is locked to the input video signal.
EXT: The servo reference signal is forced to be “EXT” (an external reference video
input signal is used).
