For recording I currently use the DTC-100 connected to the JVC 30K, with the 30K also connected to the AVX-1 as is officially recommended by 169time.


For playback I disconnect the AVX-1 and connect the 30K to the Mits HS-HD2000U.


I view these tapes through the decoder of the DTC-100 which yields the best picture quality and the fewest dropouts. The 30K acts merely as a hub for playback.


I am wondering about how others are connecting their AVX-1s, DTC-100s, and Mits/JVC VCRs, especially folks with both VCRs and/or 1394 hub users.

Well I have a Mits RPTV with integrated firewire and DTV tuner, so I have my Mits HS-HD2000U connected only to the TV, for OTA recordings and all playback. I then have my dtc-100 and JVC and AVX1 hooked up just like yours, for recording from DirecTV only, and for D-theater playback only.


Seems to be the best setup for me. Also, I never disconnect the AVX-1, or power it off. I guess I just am lucky with my setup, considering I have lots of 2.4ghz devices within 5 feet of the whole setup, dont use any inline adapters of any sort, and dont use any ferrite cores either!


I experimented with a 1394 hub, and didnt really like the results.

Aside from the dropouts of the JVC30K decoder, are you saying the DCT100 decoder produces a better picture quality than the JVC30K?

Me:


For recording only:

HDVR->AVX1->Mitsu 2000U


For playback only:

Mitsu 2000U -> PC (DVHSTool + Elecard for HDnet, Fusion HDTV for BS tapes)


Since I have two 2000U VCRs there is no need to ever move any cables around.

How is DVHSTool working. Have they fixed most of the bugs. Is it user for the non PC geek.

Does it allow real time playback.


Will it work with the MyHD card.


Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks!

I really like DVHStool. Rick has done a great job. I think it is still a bit sensitive to hardware, so some people may not be able to run it (particularly if your PC is too slow!) Also it is a tool for enthusiasts. It is helpful if you understand a bit about configuring filters, and such... But overall I think it is easy enough for many people to figure out.


I don't have a MyHD card, so I can't tell you about that. I use it to play back things that

I recorded with my HiPix card. It is definately

designed with that in mind, as it knows how

to spool a whole directory full of HiPix "minute

files". Yes, I get realtime playback with no

perceptable frame loss. 1080p output which

looks at least as good as anything I can get

from the hardware on the HiPix.


Overall it is a very similar application to the

DVico Fusion player (including DVHS support and software rendering), but the DVico doesn't support HiPix split files, and DVhstool doesn't support AAC audio decoding (for BS tapes).


On trick I found - old HiPix recordings in the *.ts.#### format don't play properly in DVHStool. They need to be renamed to the newer *.####.ts format used by the AVS edition HiPix software.


We should probably move this discussion into the DVHStool support topic if you have other questions.
