Recording DV can be garbled if the recording starts
while the device is playing a blank spot on a DV tape.
The garbling affects the entire recording, not just the
begining. The audio and video are out of sync and jump
back and forth in time. I have a sample and can make
more because the bug is consistant. I am wiling to send
a sample. I have a fast connection to help with that.
The reason I was even trying to record during the blank
spot was to try to get the time codes on Broadcast 2000
to match the time codes recorded on my mini DV tape, or
at get consistant time codes from recording the same
taped segment. The result would be that I could edit
something, render it, delete the DV file from disk, and
keep the master on tape for later. The cut up HTAL file
could be used again if the master is rerecorded because
it would still define the same parts to cut.
I know this may actually be a bug in some DV library,
but since I don't program with them, I don't know. I
figured this would be a good place to start.
