Could you use the unit as a pass thru device to connect the output to a TV monitor when playing from the timeline. It sucks that this happened to you, is it a new macbook pro the one with Retina Display that might be the problem. The more footage I loaded the worse the problems got. There are many DV products that may not appear on the approved list that will work perfectly with FCP. Sorry you got burned. I bought mine three years ago and use it with my Mac Tower, I never had any of the problems you describe.

When sent back for repair, the first time they “adjusted the playback heads” which took 8 weeks. On my second attempt, I got more of the same problems, only worse.
Actually, I have talked to some people who are having no problems at all, and others who are having the same problems as me, and worse. I have been burned by this machine, and JVC, and I don’t want anyone else to get scorched either.
The more ve30u I loaded the worse the problems got. Now I can’t even load at all–my FCP system keeps reporting time code breaks, and shutting down.
JVC SR-VS30 Mini DV / S-VHS VCR
Was I ever wrong–and I wish that I had done my homework. I’m thinking of the countless home video camcorders that connect and operate just fine. And the effects seemed cumulative. I sent the deck back for the second time, it took another 6 weeks–and they wouldn’t return any phone calls when I sv30u to check on the repairs progress, they “replaced two capaciters” and it still doesn’t work.
Avoid the JVC SR-VS30U–multiple problems!!!
I have done everything that has been suggested–cleaned the heads, changed tape brands, new firewire cables, changed camera footage different camera nothing works. I bought mine three years ago and use it with my Mac Tower, I never had any of the problems you describe. It’s not on the list of approved devices, so I hope people would check that out before buying any deck. Ours seems to not do any jvf what I described. There are many DV products that may not appear on the approved list that will work perfectly with FCP.
Not sure if its the new operating system or might not be compatible with FCP 7, honestly has been a great Deck for me and was supprise that you had such a bad experience with it. Sorry you got burned. It is pretty wr to me if I cannot load my footage from my camera masters. Could you use the unit as a pass thru device to connect the output to a TV monitor when playing from the timeline.
This machine is worthless. The point I got from Sara H’s.
JVC Pro Technical Description
I have to use my camera to load into my system at this point. It just seems to be shoddy workmanship and terrible customer service on JVCs part. Return to posts index.
It sucks that this happened to you, is it a new macbook pro the one with Retina Display that might be the problem. This post is more of a warning than a search for answers.
I’m glad that yours is doing right by you.
