I use it with an HD-110U, and yes, it records TC and you can use the camera's record button.
I set up the CF cards as UDF format (rather than Fat32). You have an option for how you want to control the recording. The 3 options are Normal (the FSH-200 buttons control the unit), External (for newer camera control), and Syncro (for older camera control). I found that I couldn't get camera recording control by using the External setting, but it works fine using Synchro.

Thanks Ed,

Mine arrived yesterday but still waiting for my media card to turn up - how frustrating is that.

I shall give it a test to see what works best. So just to get this straight do you use 'Syncro' mode for hard drive only recording using the cameras record button? Can you also use this mode for doing a dual record?

I use Synchro mode for recording to card *and* tape. The instructions say that External mode works for cameras that don't need a tape inserted and Synchro mode is for "older" cameras that need a tape inserted. It only works in Synchro mode with my camera (if I want camera recording control), but that's OK with me since I want a tape backup.

Anyone maybe "Matt",

Using a JVC HD200. Like Ed said the camera controls will only work in the Synchro mode.

I only see the counter moving in the TC but not the Absolute, Counter, Remaining , or UB. Is that normal?

The TC also seems to be behind a few frames from the TC on the camera. Is that normal?

And while I don't mind having the tape in the camera as a backup while I record, I'm guessing you have to stop recording to change the tape which means the FSH200 also has to stop recording. That's kind of counter productive to why I went to tapeless since it always seems that what I'm shooting always goes over that 60 minute mark. Or am I missing something? Can it continue to record while a tape is being changed?

Thanks,

Carlos
