Can JVC CU-VH1 play tapes from Sony HDR-FX1?

Based on the JVC website it only plays back up to 720p recordings, but I would think it would support all HDV-compliant tapes.

It looks like it can based on the product brochure listed here.

Here's what it says;

Quote:
480p / 59.94
480i / 29.97
Playback only:
720p / 60 fps
HD only
1080i / 30 fps
I'd probably call JVC directly on that one. There's actually a guy here on the forum that works for JVC Pro. You may want to contact him, I think his name is Ken Freed. You can search for it.

Ken Freed is indeed the man. Do a search here and put in his name. I think his contact info is there, but I'm not sure.

The CU-VH1 does not play back the tapes for the Sony HDV cameras.

It will output 1080i but that is an upconversion from the normal JVC HDV content.

Tested?

Phil,

Is that tested results or an 'educated' guess?

Thanks.

Troy,

This was confirmed via testing. CineForm has the CU-VH1 and the Sony cameras. The Sony cameras however will play the JVC tapes. Not really very suprising actually.

BTW don't you owe me a JY-HD10U for being wrong about JVC DVHS decks being able to record the Sony HDV content? ;)

As far as I've heard, there have been successful attempts at getting the FX1 to connect to D-VHS decks according threads on sonydvinfo.com....

You've tested otherwise I assume? :)

The JVC 30000 DVHS VCR will recognise and even decode the incoming Sony HDV stream but fails during playback. The video breaks up with MPEG errors constantly.
