Hey G1powermac, I have an XL2 and use the ZR80 to capture all my video. When taping presentations (most if not all are over 30mins) with only one camera I always tape in LP and the ZR80 never had a problem playing them. We until it gets to hot then it will not play more then 15 seconds before it starts dropping frame. Have you tried playing a tape recorded on the 80 on the GL2? That would be interesting to know if it has a problem. I don’t know all the ins and outs of these cameras, but is is possible for the heads to go out of alignment? If so maybe that is the problem. I know back in the day tape deck heads would get out of alignment. When that happened any tapes taped on that deck could only be played on it. Again I’m not sure if these heads can come out of alignment, but I don’t know why they couldn’t.
