The manual on my XH-A1 says the audio levels on the camera can look fine but the audio can still be overmodulated.

Larry, et al.

You can send line level to a mic level input on most any camera and set a "proper" level, but the audio will still be distorted. (it won't soundd good, but the level will look right.) That info is in my book, btw.

All video cmaeras I've run into share that mystery. I mean, why not have them set up so if you send line level and the input is set to mic, the meter goes WAY off scale?

Check to make sure your gozouta and gozinta are set porperly.
