Author: Topic: Capture/searching for media/ or not?

Problem whilst importing JVC HDV footage to final cut pro:

Ok so I've got version 5.1 and updated to 5.1.2 and worked out the different combinations of settings to succesfully download my JVC HDV footage. (JVC HD 100 and 101 downloaded on a JVC HD50 deck. 720/24p

Problem: Whether I capture 'now' or 'batch' or whatever. During capture the stream fluctuates between 'Capture' and 'searching for media' mirroring how the camera was started and stopped on the shoot.

No problem, if the capture would kick back in a little sooner.

And for 70% of the capture it does work, but now and again the capture starts half way into the shot, or not at all.

The result is that I have to sit and watch the full capture. Stop the capture whenever it doesnt cut back in, and manually start the capture. This does resolve the matter but is very time consuming.

I've changed time code settings, pre roll , post roll, drop frames, non drop frames etc, etc, etc

Any ideas guys?

Many thanks
