  1. Okay Elaine,

     

    I'm glad you've got it working for you. The 30-minute one bears looking at, though. There are still many questions unanswered there.

     

    Is it an error in that file which is causing a problem with MyDVD 5, or just the duration and a heat buildup?

    Is the other software completing because it doesn't work the CPU so hard, and therefore there isn't so much of a heat buildup? Who knows?

     

    I hope the checkup doesn't show something serious with the machine.

     

    Regards,

    Brendon

    As well as the suggestions already made I'd also suggest looking at your system settings for switching into standby.


  2. I have been really happy with the Canon HV20. HDV that uses tape. There are arguments for and against tape systems. I still haven't warmed up to AVCHD format. Still too many issues editing, etc. Some manufacturers don't publish the bitrate of camcorders so it varies to quality. I always consider 'last years' models, too, which are usually heavily discounted.

     

    I'd go for a model that records on a HDD if possible or maybe tape,

     

    I've used a VHS-C model from Panasonic, and currently have 1xHi-8, 1xDigital-8 & 1x30Gb HDD model from Sony, and 1xMiniDv model from Panasonic. The Hi-8 camcorder I have doesn't have a digital connection so it's a pain the .... to get the footage onto the computer. The HDD camcorder I have isn't top of the line but it seems to do the trick for most of the stuff I do and transfering "footage" to the computer is a lot faster than using firewire/i.link or a video capture card.
