    I bought a hi8 recorder to replace my regular 8mm. When replaying the
    regular 8mm on the hi8, the sound cuts in and out, and there is a
    slight horizontal distortion line on the bottom of the screen. Is this
    normal for playing regualar 8 tapes on a hi8 camcorder?

    Thanks for replying. I don't know if they are recorded in HD.
    I don't have the paper work, but I think they are both mono Hi Fi (same
    thing? )
    They are both Canon's are probably considered low end consumer models.
    .. The regular 8mm is about 10 years older than the newer high 8.
    The older is not working, so that leaves me with trying to salvage
    years of family memories on a high 8 with the audio cutting out,
    sometimes for long periods at a time. There's no place locally I can
    find to take it in for somebody to look at the unit. Would it make
    sense to try to find a used regular 8 somewhere?
