What do I do now? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

THANKS!
Hi Maxene,

The instructions clearly indicate that if you have trouble, to call JVC Tech support. Since you are not in the U.S., you will need to call the tech support office that services your country. You may end up needing to send in your unit to a JVC service center to have the upgrade done.

Ronald, can you be more specific as to what issue you are asking about?

Br-hd50

Hi Carl:

I had read a post that indicated that clips transferred from the BR-HD50 via firewire to FCP had the occasional tendency to be broken up into smaller elements and it was my understanding, perhaps erronously so, that it had to with FCP's reading of the timecode or timecode dropouts?

Hi Ron,

What you describe is a known FCP problem, that Apple is working on. There are work-arounds for now that are outlined on this forum. The BR-HD50U firmware does not address this issue. The reason for the 1.06 firmware upgrade is mostly to get 24p connectivity to FCP.

Has someone an old firmware file for the BR-HD50?

Hi guys,

I wonder if someone has an old version of the firmware of the BR-HD50 (older than 1.08) as we encounter an issue where 1.08 is showing some flaws and we want to turn back to an old firmware.

Apparently we can not re-update using a firmware with identical version number, so using an old one instead may help us here.

If anyone has an older version archived, please drop me a note!

Cheers,
Axel
