I'm having software or driver problems on the 6028 to PC hookup. I bought a firewire cable, worked fine, DCT6208 recognized.
First, perhaps you can tell me if the drivers are working right. I don't see the 6028 HDD as a device under My Computer, or maybe it shouldn't be there.
Downloaded all software per AVS Forum instructions. Managed to get the 6208 recognized by two drivers in Device Drivers under Imaging devices. They are called Panasonic DVS AV/C Device and Tuner AV/C Device
Both have an unnamed driver from Matsu****a Electoric Industorial (misspellings as indicated), apparently from the Meitape drivers.
Perhaps the drivers are working, when I unplug the firewire, the CapDVHS says No Device Connected. If so, here is where I'm at, software-wise.
The CapDVHS program acknowledges a device: Panasonic MPEG2TS Tape Sub
Then according to instructions, I do the following(AVS Forum instructions in quotes)
Select the Data Info.' tab and hit the Rec' Button
You should see the info populated.
This used to work fine, now I don't see the info being populated', though it keeps recording.
Hit stop and check your file.
I hit stop and while a file is stored, I cant get them to playback
Elecard works well for playback or Sasem OnAir Editor or VLC
I downloaded all three and none of them show anything to play
Also I can't get VLC to display the video feed on my computer, though it seems to recognize something.
Can you please explain what I might be doing wrong? It is so frustrating.
Finally, is there a way to just copy non-HD TV shows that I recorded on the 6208 hard disk (DVR) without all the streaming and HD compatibility that the AVS Forum instructions supposedly lead to?
