First try to correct your CAPS problem. Then check the switch on the back that it is properly positioned for either NTSC or PAL, whatever applies in your case. This has often been causing these kind of problems. If that is not the case, supply more details on version, project/sequence settings, and export settings, as well as source material.
Here is a little bit more info, that the OP forgot to add to this post:
I am using premiere pro cs4. I did not cite this in my warstory. The computer takes over the vtr but I get nothing on the tape.. thanks to those who have viewed the original question.. I apologize for not telling you what software I am using.
Hope that this helps,
Have you tried just manually hitting Rec. on the deck and then starting playback in Premiere?
On rereading your original post, it surprised me that you mention the monitor of the DSR-11, but that model has no monitor. Can you check the model you are using, or did you mean the program monitor in PR?
In order to help you, you have to be very precise, because we can't LOOK over your shoulder, we can only READ what you write and if that leaves things open for misinterpretation or misunderstanding, we can not help effectively.
Harm, thanks for the information. My DSR 11 has a port and I connect that port to a monitor. I am able to see whatever I am doing on the computer's monitor and the monitor that I connect to the DSR simultaneously... That is why I know that the computer takes over the vtr : the lights, the countdown, the terms index and mark. But NO VIDEO.. I reworked the program on another computer using the A.P. 6.2 software, and VOILA!
I captured, I imported , I exported to tape and everything worked like clockwork as it is supposed to. I just cannot get the same thing to happen when I use PP CS4. fa'thahks
I understand now. I just tried it out with another deck (Panasonic NV-DV2000 and an external monitor) and no problems. The Program Monitor shows the message that the timeline is played on an external device, the Panny records and the external monitor shows what is recorded. Stopping the export to movie, rewinding and playing the recorded part back shows no problems. So it has to be something in your settings. Did you check the NTSC/PAL switch on the back of the DSR-11?
