What exactly happens when someone tries to play regular Japanese BS tape on US 30K. I know that WowWow tapes will not play since they are copy protected, but what about the ones which are not copy protected.

Actually you can see about 1 second of the BS program then the 30KU stops the decoding and the screen goes black.


This leads me to believe that the 30KU decoder is perfectly capable of decoding the BS signal, but JVC has artifically disabled this capability through software.

The copy protection of wowow tapes prevents them from being copied to another tape, but the original recording does play on any BS player. wowow permits copy once.

It will work if you put the firewire into a japanese model 30K or maybe another decoder and then you can use the US version 30K as transport and watch your BS program on the other decoder.

You can watch BS when 30000U is conected to MyHF HDTV card under window XP.

Perfect picture but no sound.

They said that MPEF AAC ( audio) signal will be made to pass though to AV amp when next SW upgrade is possible.

The 30kU lacks the ability to decode the audio, which is why it's disabled in the software.

That would make sense since the 30K doesn't have an aac decoder, but couldn't it decode the audio to pcm?


The japanese 30K has the option of pcm or dd/aac passthrough.

So what you are saying, is that if I had a receiver with AAC decoder (like the new Yamaha RX-Z1/DSP-AZ1) I will be able t watch Japanese BS tapes with sound. Does the US JVC30K pass AAC stream for sure?.

Yes , but when next sw upgrade.

right now picture is perfect. it can't pass through.
Jaehong, if you have a chance,could you please also ask MIT INC if they plan to fix the copy protected tape playback issue (ex.WOWOW) in a next software upgrade.


thanks.Rob

Hi Rob,


Yes, the copy protected tape is a concern. I heard they're going to label more program as copy protected starting this month...
