    No audio or video on capture

    I am sure we are just missing something but we are having trouble capturing from a Panasonic AJ-HD1400 deck.  It is a new system with running OS X 10.4.11 and MC 3.1.3, no Mojo or any other DNA only 1394 FW.  We can control the deck through the Avid, the tabs for V1, A1,A2 are all highlighted but we do not see or hear anything.  We tried different sorts of deck configurations (Auto adjust, picked the exact deck).  It does work with FCP so that tells me that it doesn't seem like a 1394 issue with the Mac.  Any thoughts?  Like I said I am sure that I am just overlooking something.

    Check the decks DIF settings. Make sure you have the right speed (S400), stream format HD -> HD and not downconverting, etc.

    Hey Dom,

    We checked all that and we got DVCPro and DVCPRO HD to both play fine, it just seems to not like MiniDV being used with the cassette adapter for some reason.

    You sure you have DV25 media in that tape? We often get tapes from the field incorrectly labeled as being DV when in fact the camera was set to HDV. At that point you need another deck :)

    Positive. I can play it on my system but I do have Adrenaline DNA. We are going to try one more thing and connect a canopus to the system and see.  We are baffled at why we can't work with that one tape.Confused
