    I need to record a 2 hour vhs to two -1 hour minidvs. I have to monitor
    the record process. At the one hour mark I manually stop the machine
    and switch out the mini dv. I then record the last half of the 2 hour
    vhs to the second mini dv.

    Is there a program feature on the SRVS20U that will automatically stop
    recording when the mini dv reaches the end? If I don't catch it at the
    half way mark the machine begins to rewind. I'm technologically stump.
    If the jvc duplicator were to stop at the end of the first minidv (at
    the middle of the VHs) I could swap it out and finish up recording the
    last half of the VHs tape.
    Thanks for your attentions. Chuck M

  2. No there is not. The JVC machines will do only single pass duplication. You
    could use an 80 minute miniDV tape in LP mode which will allow the full 2
    hours to record unattended.

    I know the wrost one can do is record analog at extended play.
    If I copy the two hour tape running in sp mode and record on the 80
    minute minidv will there be degradation?
    I elected to do two sixty minute minidvs from the two hour VHs because
    I didn't want it to degrade. I need to dub for archive value.

    Also, if this question could be evaluated. When using the SR VS30U if I
    use a VHS-C adpater (I have a collection of VHS-C tapes) the machine
    plays the tapes. When I attempt to do a dub (vhs to dv) the machine
    turns off. Simply shuts down.

    I could see the tape not playing and that would be the end of it; but,
    it plays the tapes using the converter so the assumption would be that
    duplication would be possible.
    Thanks for the attentions, and the feed back.
