From reading many posts it seems as if you can record in digital mode onto S-VHS tapes using the JVC HM-DH30000.


If this is true, how is it accomplished? Do you have to record from a digital source to use digital recording or will the player encode analog inputs?


Thanks!

One of the best features of the deck is analog recording through S-VHS "Input #1" using the "REC LINK" button on the front panel. Unattended 21 hour tapes can be recorded.

Good words on using S-VHS tapes for digital recording. Has anyone tried drilling a "digital tape recognition" hole in an S-VHS cartridge to see if JVC will then accept the tape as a "native" digital tape? Has anyone been able to record digitally on S-VHS tapes in the "LS3 mode? Has anyone been successful in persuading the machine to output DV from the iLink in playback of tapes recorded as LS3 or STD?

I have been successful using STD playback over iLink to PC, from S-VHS tape. Have not tried it with LS3 but don't see why it wouldn't work.

Drill a hole and the deck will look at it as a DVHS tape.

George,

Some folks drill holes, some clip off the sensing switch post, and some just push the DVHS button to put the recorder in digital mode. SVHS tape can be used for all speeds including LS3.


The 30k has a DV decoder, but not a DV encoder. DVHS recordings, regardless of speed, output MPEG2 from the iLink. Analog recordings only output from the A/V and component outputs.
