Hi, I subscribed to ask a question regarding my new camcorder. It is a JVC GR-SXM248 (analog) I am new at camcorders, so please bare with me. The problem is only when playing back, I have a whole line of different information across the top of the screen. (such as the tape counter, the recording mode indicator, cassette indicator, etc.) I've tried to record onto a VHS tape, thinking that this info would go away, but it's still there! I thought it was just appearing in the LCD monitor but it appears on the TV and on the recorded tape as well. Is there a way of getting rid of this information, or recording without having it on? It seems to me that no one would want to have this information hanging over their family videos. (I'd like to see this information when recording though) Thank you for your help. CamGal.
