Cannot capture or Playback on XL H1
I have been doing some shooting with the Canon XL-H1. So that I can actually say that I have shot and worked with HDV footage. And so I can test the Matrox MXO with HDV footage. Shooting has been fun, but now it comes to time to capture the stuff…or even play it back on my HD monitor, and for the life of me it isn’t working.
Yes…I read the manual. In fact, that is one of the reasons I am writing.
In the manual, on page 98, it says to play back the footage I need to pres MENU, go to the SIGNAL SETUP option and choose PLAYBACK STD and set it to the format that I have been shooting, DV or HDV. Well, that option is greyed out…I cannot access it. Same thing for capturing, I need to set this to the format I shot to capture it, but it isn’t available. It won’t let me select it.
Any ideas why?
