GS100 TV playback and preview

Hi.
Still exploring my new GS100. Now testing TV connection on playback and preview.
Have recorded a few minutes of tape, connected to A/V of TV as required, playing back brings nothing to TV screen - no video, no audio, video is playing back on LCD and in viewfinder.

Are there any menu options in the cam that disable A/V output ?

Have yet tried S-Video connection.

BTW, as I understood S-Video cam output doesn't carry audio signal, right ?

exactly....

dunno the jap translation, but in VCR mode, ana cams have an "AV in/out setup" function.
In there you can assign the output jack to either IN/OUT or OUT/Phones.
Pana cams also have an Audio dub selector which allows u to dub audio either thru the mic, or thru the AV Jack
The DV out config (backup, DV copy etc) is also in theis area...

Thanks Peter.
I was really nervious searching through teh menus several times, readign even DV953 manual. Figured the AV setup you mentioned in the translation, (though the suplied translation of this specific point wasn't clear), nothing helped, UNTIL I figured another smaller socket just under the once I considered AV one - this one turned to be an AV indeed and everything begun to play as a sharm !

BTW, what is the socket just above the AV ? (a bigger hole the AV with metal surrounding)

Alex, it's the plug for the wired remote control or for an external mic (plug-in power).

Yes, no audio from S-video. You have to connect the supplied composite AV-cable as well to get audio. You should not connect the S-video and yellow composite video cable simultaneously. Depending on your TV, no image may appear if both video plugs are connected at the same time.

Thanks Allan, but isn't the AV connector sharing both AV and ext. mic functionality ?

I am strugging with this too. There are not enough plug ports. For example, you cannot have the wired controller and an external. Can you have phones and mike at the same time? Confusing...

Yeah, unfortunately, there are sharing of functions of the same plug.

The AV port also functions as headphone port. Make sure to set to Out/Phone (Headphone) - VCR Mode, 6th Menu, 1st Sub-Menu -when connecting a headphone, otherwise you'd not hear the right audio channel.

You should be able to connect a headphone and a mic at the same time right?

If you want to use the wired remote and a mic simultaneously, you must buy Pany's proprietary hot shoe mic.

The MX5K was even worse - AV In/Out, headphone, and wired remote shared by one port.

Pany would not provide an LANC connector so as a compromise, they're providing the wired remote. Zoom speed is not variable though. In any case, it is pretty convenient to use (when shooting) especially when your cam is mounted on tripod or when shooting at awkward angles/positions.

The wireless one is useful both during shooting and playback. You can even perform Menu Operations using it. There are some functions that require the use of the wireless remote...audio dubbing is one I think.
