Digital Break up while viewing/capturing tapes

Ok, I've got a major tech question and its blowing my mind. While viewing/capturing tapes shot using HDV 30p there seems to be digital artifacts that crop up at different portions of the durration. They never seem to occur at the same time and have been noticed on two different HDV decks (one being a sony deck and the other being during playback in the camera). Does anyone have an Idea as to where the problem is coming from? This has never happend in the past and I'm are really confused. Thanks.

Need Major help- Audio problems, and problems with JVC in general

This is best all understood if you have a GR-HD1 and or have heard the audio from one. So a few months back my camera started producing audio with pops and large amounts of hiss/ crackling. I tried to clean it to see if that helped, but it did not. So recently (about 2 months ago) I sent it to JVC for repair. After two months of intense frustration from dealing with their service ( they kept telling me that they'd call me "tomorrow" - that lasted for a month and a half , and emailing JVC also did NO good, but hey thats another story and I'm getting angry just thinking about it) I now have my camera back. Well they didn't fix it at all. So now I've contemplated going postal- anyways, I would just like to get a little feedback from you guys to make sure I'm not crazy and maybe some suggestions- I've posted 2 links to a .zip file with 3 audio clips I've taken. One with just using the onboard audio, one using a rode video mic plugged into the camera, and one using the rode video mic with a minidisk recorder. They were all taken at the same place- outside. some things I'd like feedback on-

1) I do have a problem right?
2) what does your audio from your JVC GR-HD1 sound like? better than mine I hope.
3) what should I do to get it repaired, and get it repaired right.
4)Should the audio should sound better when I have the rode video mic plugged into the camera? I think I can still hear traces of the crackling/hissing from it. I might be wrong.

This has just been a very frustrating experience, and has costs me lots of time and money. Any help is appreciated.

Here are the links to the audio:

As I understand it, the problem didn't exist then it did. Correct? Do you still have a contact for the JVC repair depot you sent it to, Either phone, or email? I would follow up with them, in a very agressive manner. Daily! Keep it simple. "My cam worked fine, developed audio problems, I sent it in, it was returned un-repaired." Keep hammering this message at your contacts untill you recieve a proper responce. You could also try an official complaint to JVC about your experience of a pathetic repair service.
On another note, is there a local authorized repair depot? I live near Vancouver BC Canada and there is one or more there. The benefit is it isn't being sent of to corporate where no one answers the phone. You can call up and ask, what up?

HD10u Night Footage

Sorry I'm a bit late with the footage, but my schedule got a little hecktic. Ok so here it is...Its nothing special.. The settings are as follows;
JVC jyhd10u
Manual Focus
720p / 30 fps shutter
auto white balance
no Color correction
No ACG

The download link is: http://www.sendspace.com/file/h3vtia

enjoy...I think it's a pretty decent example of what the camera can do with little effort. With manual White balance it would have been much better..but I wanted to see how the camera would handle it.

Good work Darrin. I see no one has thanked you yet so, kudo's.
One suggestion I would have for you is to zoom into an area of your shot you want focused. Leave auto focus on. Let it settle. Then switch to manual focus. This will lock you into nice high resolution focus. Something which is impossible to do from the LCD or view finder. You footage is very soft and it is do to lack of proper focus. Your effort is appreciated none the less. What city was that by the way?

Thanks Ken

Hi Ken,
The City is Kingston in Ontario Canada. About 2hrs east of Toronto.That is great advice for the Zoom. I usually do exactly that. Sometimes when it's low light the auto focus has difficulty or is a bit slow...so I tough it out manually... In this case I guess I should have used an external monitor.But your are spot on with it helping the focus. Thank you for the comments and suggestions. Always good to hear from you.

a good tripod for HD1/HD10?

Anyone have an opinion of what a good general use tripod for the HD1/HD10 would be?

I shoot ENG at my day job, so I'm very used to the Oconnor Quick Deployment Tripods (which I just love) & Sachtler Hot Pods. But I can't afford anything as nice as those sticks & wanted to hear what others use.

I use an el-cheapo Manfrotto 200$ tripod with a fluid video head.

Works like a charm.

exporting from PC to cam error

Guys,
As a test of the import/export feature, I pull off about 30 seconds of HD video from my HD10U using the JVC HD Capture Utility. The import works fine as I can see the resulting file and play it back in VLC. However, when I take this same file and Export it using the same JVC utility, the export fails with the message "cannot decode audio or video". I've tried a different tape, starting the export a few minutes into the tape versus at the beginning and similar tweaks/reboots/restarts but nothing seems to help.

I searched the forum and found a few people had similar issues, but I never found a resolution.

Has anyone seen this error and could tell me the solution?

Wide angle lens for HD10

Does anyone make a wide-angle lens for the HD10? Century Optics doesn't seem to.

It would need to have a 52mm thread. A quick google search found me this:

http://www.zoommania.com/walens52mm.html

I would suggest a search of this forum as I am sure we discussed this back in the day.
