    Hi, I have just bought a JVC GR-D340E/EK digital video camera and have a
    couple of questions. I am new to this technology...

    How is the data stored on tape, as a digital file or as analog video
    (like old video camers)?

    If I use the DV connector to firewire on my PC an I getting the stored
    digital recording off tape, if not what?

    If I use the S-video connector (or composite video connector) does this
    come off tape as video or does the camera create the video signals on
    the fly?

    I am looking for the best way to take recordings off the tap into my PC
    with the highest quality.

    Thanks for your help.

    Brian

    And I'd suggest that you read RFC 1855 - specifically the seventh
    paragraph in Clause 3.1.1 which identifies you as an immature beginner.

    Since you're obviously a newbie, if you can't find RFC 1855 using
    Google, please come back and I'd be pleased to help an immature beginner
    like yourself.

    Why? Because the OP's spellchecker didn't catch the "tap" misspelling of
    "tape"?

    Big deal.

    I appreciate Tony's help, especially as he was not immature enough to
    comment on missing e's.

    He who can spell perfectly should cast the first stone (with ease!)

    I'd suggest that you have a word with your school-teacher since he/she
    hasn't instilled in you the very basic reading skills.

    Ask him to help you read (and understand) what I say on
    http://www.camcord.info/

    "I am no expert - just an enthusiastic amateur."

    If you interpret that as saying "I'm perfect and everything I say is
    correct" then you are a demonstrable dumbo.

    I also go on to say "If you would like to contribute an article to this
    site it would be welcome " but obviously, being such a dumbo, you will
    never have a contribution to make - either to my website or to this
    newsgroup.

    Now there's a good boy - go and troll somewhere else. All you're doing
    here is making an arsehole of yourself.

    Care to treat us all to your contribution(s) then?

    I'd also be interested (since you think you're so smart) in what
    website(s) you have spent any time in creating - No? I though not.
    You're just a sad spotty-faced schoolboy troll.

  10. There are two grammatical errors and two punctuation errors in the
    opening page. The first sentence is clumsy, but not exactly
    incorrect. Spelling seems OK though :)

    The Tuning page is rather out-of-date. And, if we're talking about
    the days when there were only 16 IRQ slots ( numbered 0-15, not 15
    slots numbered 1-15) we must remember the top PCI slot often shared a
    hardwired IRQ with the AGP slot. NOT a clever place to put your
    Firewire card! And did we really mean "...power supply issues on
    your computer's PCI bus."? Oh yes, and the antediluvian
    misapprehension about virtual memory. Spelling's OK as far as I
    can see.

    Skimmed through the rest. Can't see any spelling mistakes.

    Well done, Tony! Excellent spelling!

    Are 'we' not all being a little petty here. As far as I am concerned
    Tony's site answered all my questions and more, and that is all I care
    about. This silly squabble is just wasted noise on the internet.

    I am now much better educated with respect to digital video and how to
    turn my simple videoing of my son's wedding into something presentable,
    thanks to Tony.

    .... so why don't you lot just bugger off :)

  12. Nah. We live here. Tony enjoys being pompous at times. I enjoy
    teasing him. Live with it.

    Thanks Laurence. That's the first constructive post I've seen from you
    for quite a while.

  14. You haven't corrected it yet though :) May I have an editor credit?

    As I have a widden vidio to sort out I suppose I might be back with more
    questions later.

  16. Now, let me guess. A wooden video? Nah. Something to do with
    Halloween? :)

  17. Come on, Tony! You STILL haven't corrected it! People of our
    generation surely realise how illiterate presentation devalues
    content? This is your flagship web page, not a trivial misprint in
    an email :)

    Looks to me like your site is going to be very helpful to the likes of
    the OP who need some basic questions answered. You might perhaps mention
    that all Macs come with Firewire built in, and, with the supplied iMovie
    and iDVD, you can create straightforward movies very easily. I can't
    judge about the PC aspects as I don't use them.
