FYI, the component cable for the HVX is also compatible with the component cable for the XLH1 and for the original JVC HD1 & HD10.

Aha! Good to know! I was hoping this was a standard thing. I've personally never dealt with D terminal connections/connectors.

Barry, here's a question. I'm assuming you can choose the HD component output format, independent of the recording format. For instance recording in 720p24N, and monitoring 1080i out the D terminal. Yes? I hope.

Yes you can do that.

Overall you can do some cross-conversion but not all. Both 1080i and 720p modes can be output as 1080i or downconverted to 480i. 720p can also be converted to 1080i, but 1080i can't be cross-converted to 720p on the analog outputs.

480i doesn't get up-rezzed on output; 480i is output as 480i.

Very cool. Good news there.

So I ran the Marshall a bit more today and the sum total from last night and today on a single charge on the Bescor battery was a little over 5 hours. :)

Steev,
I just bought the Marshall V-R70P-HDA.
Please point me to a link to buy the Bescor battery and charger you purchased.

Thanks, Steve

No problem.

It's the Bescor NMH-65A 14.4V NiMH:

But, In case of using V-mount Battery,
What would you recommend?
How about Varizoom?

I've never used V-mount batteries. It's never been in the budget. Has anyone else used V-mount batteries, specifically the Varizoom branded ones?

Mount & Charger

Mmmm... No info...
Well, 'Bescor NMH-65A' worked very well, like you said... smaller than I thought too...

Anyway, I tried
'Marshall V-LCDMT01 Accessory Mounting Bracket for Camera Shoe' to test the monitor with my DVX & Mini35...

I think the monitor is bit too heavy for the mounting bracket...
It seems OK, if the monitor stay up straight all the time...
But, it's very unstable when tilted...

Guess I need to find good solid off-set arm mount for later, when using with HVX200...

Again, Thank you very very much for the information.

oh, one more question... The instruction for the 'Bescor' charger seems very confusing... (or I'm dumb.. Mmmm) Anything I specially need to know for charging?

I've found that when I charge, it'll be in solid green mode which means it's charging. Then often the charger goes into flashing red light mode, and I have to unplug, then plug back in, and continue charging. Then it'll charge until the green light blinks, and that means the battery is charged.

Too bad it doesn't just charge in one instance of plugging in and letting it charge overnight. I guess that's why it's $200. :/

Thanks to Steev and everyone else on this thread. I'm ordering the Marshall V-R70P-HDA today from Guy at DVestore.com for just under $1,300 and probably the Bescor battery set up as well. I appreciate all of your great notes and testing Steev.

I plan on mounting the Marshall with my HVX200 the same way I mounted my TransVideo CineMonitor IIIA when I had my XL2.
Photo here - http://www.thisis24p.com/firestore-pic3.html

It's on an arm that I got from VFgadgets.com. Jong, this arm may work well for you if you have not found a solution you like yet.

The TransVideo had mounting holes on the top and bottom. Since the Marshall does not look like it will flip the image and I'll need to mount this upside down , do I just need to get the "Mounting Plate?"
screen grab here (cut from Marshall .pdf) - http://www.thisis24p.com/MarshallMountingPlate.html

Then just attach that to the top (says it mounts on any of the sides) so I can screw it into the VF Gadget arm?

Ah.. cool! I have to look into that. Great find Derek.

You have the right idea. The Marshall comes with that plate already installed on the bottom. Just unscrew it and mount it on the top so you can mount the monitor upside down.

I'd actually like another plate so I have it on both bottom and top for quick flip mount ability. Did you see this plate as an orderable item?

Thanks Steev.

The folks at VFgadgets.com are some really nice people to work with as well.

On the Marshall Plate -
I found it in a .pdf at the very bottom left hand corner of this page. It says "Owners Manual (PDF)" ~
http://www.lcdracks.com/monitors/vr70p-sd.html

Or here's a direct link to the .pdf itself. The plate's on page 3, but there's no item # next to it ~
http://www.lcdracks.com/monitors/pdf...rs%20Guide.pdf

Next time I talk to Guy, I'll find out more about it and post the info here, as this is a GREAT thread on everything about this Marshall V-R70P-HDA. Thanks for letting me know about being able to remove the plate the V-R70P-HDA comes with and the ability to just place it on the top. That should work well enough to get me going!

Got the Marshall & Other Stuff Too!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Steev picked a real winner with this monitor. It was also nice being able to get a quick visual of where the three wires went on the back.

In addition to buying the Marshall Monitor and Bescor Battery I purchased a 26 Foot cable to allow a nice range of portability to the monitor if/when needed. The items I bought were { B&H code in () } -

1 Monster-Cable Video-2 Component 3/RCA-3/RCA (MOMV2CV8M)
3 Comprehensive-Cables Adapters - RCA/F to RCA (COARFRF)

I took a couple of photo's for your reference:
http://www.thisis24p.com/Marshall26FT-1.html (main photo of cable attached to HVX200)
http://www.thisis24p.com/Marshall26FT-2.html (close up of the adaptors)

I was impressed that the person at B&H told me that I was going to need the adaptors to do this. There's nothing I hate more than buying stuff, getting it, then finding out I'm missing something that prevents everything from working. The B&H rep also advised that I purchase Comprehensive's cable because he liked the spec's on it a little better, and it was around $30 less as well. The only problem was that it would not be availble for another 10 to 14 days, and I did not want to wait. But the Comprehensive might be a better option for some of you.

PS - I would not attempt reading the Bescor Battery charging instructions after drinking. And if you haven't been drinking, these instructions may drive you to it. I was glad to see Steev's summary up above.
