      Ok, i’ll be brief. Does running DV in sp or lp actually makea difference. I can’t imagine that it would. Nothing but 1’s and 0’s right? And I am talking about video quality not just the obvious. πŸ™‚

      You know, I have been wondering the same thing as well, for the past couple years but I have never been able to get a straight answer… or any answer for that matter.

      i usually record lp only if it’s a new tape and i know that an opportunity for atape change is not likely to happen. otherwise i record sp. i haven’t noticed any issues in my tapes that have been recorded in lp.

      The difference in SP LP in DV is that the bits are placed closer together on the tape. The quality is a constant as the DV standard does not allow for a lowering of bitrate. However due to the fact that the bits are closer together on the track they have a much higher chance of having errors which would cause artifacts and other problems with your video. Only use ifabsolutelynecessary.
