  1. Not sure about the other QS/ES decks but the MDS-JB940 has a "Date Recorded" button on the remote control. There's no such button on the MDS-JB980's remote control (nor does it have a clock afaik).

    Hi Mus. You might be best asking somewhere like avforums.com. There is not a lot of TV related chat on these forums these days. Good luck!
  3. Lovely looking machine, Richard. I've had one of these on my eBay watch list for ages but the ones that come up always see to either be very scratched or a very expensive import from Japan.
  4. I’ve got some “normal” MDs with plastic shutters, Kevin. I think they are Sharp ones (they’re in a box somewhere atm).
  5. Is the MZ-NH700 your only machine? Just wondered if the MDs with plastic shutters work okay in a different player?
  6. Re Air mode: Activate the Air circuit on Scarlett 3rd Gen’s upgraded mic preamps to make your guitars and vocals sound instantly brighter and more spacious, giving them a lustrous sheen that can make all the difference in the mix. Air emulates the technology of the same name from our legendary ISA preamp – just ask your local hit record producer how big a deal that is. https://focusrite.com/en/news/introducing-scarlett-3rd-gen
  7. Did you have the "INST" switch engaged when you were trying to record from your MD player? You possibly don't want that engaged as it is designed for recording something like an electric guitar straight into the interface.
  8. Does it have SPDIF connections on the rear?
  9. If it’s anything like the 8i6 then phantom power will only be on the XLR input. Best to check the manual though.
  10. No problem. Glad you’ve got it sorted.
  11. You can find the instructions on how to do that here: http://minidisc.org/r30_manual/MZ-R30e.htm#Labeling_recordings
  12. Yes, you can title a disc. What machine do you have?
  13. Great work M1JWR. It’s always encouraging to see another deck saved.
  14. Not familiar with that deck but had a quick root about and it looks very similar to this Orion MDC-201 deck? http://minidisc.org/Orion.jpg
  15. Google’s not turning up anything for me tbh. Is it the user manual you’re after or the service manual? Looks like you can get the latter on eBay, if you’re prepared to pay.
  16. I think you'll need a donor unit with the same type of drive. The MDS-JE480 has the MDM-7S1A drive mechanism. The MDS-JE780 and MDS-JB980 use the same one.
  17. Sorry, should have mentioned that the Service Manual states that the Rec Level knob and the AMS knob are the same part.
  18. Not sure if it might help you locate one but, according to the Service Manual, the part numbers are: 4-227-834-01 KNOB (AMS) (BLACK)...(BLACK) 4-227-834-11 KNOB (AMS) (SILVER)...(SILVER)
  19. I would have thought swapping the drive mechanism would be the easiest option. They're just fixed with four screws and then you'd need to connect up a couple of ribbon cables and the earth.
  20. My first thought was something to do with pitch control but I had a quick look at the manual and, as Kevin says, it doesn't look like the MDS-JE480 has that functionality. Had you accessed the service menu before this became an issue James? Is the playback just high pitched? Or sped up? Or both?
  21. Thanks for confirming re the "PRO" thing Bluecrab. The poster on TH hasn't reported back yet but it will be interesting to hear how they've got on.
  22. Thanks Bluecrab. Quick question: does your MDS-E10 display “MDS-E10 PRO” on the screen when you power it on?
  23. Interesting. I had assumed that the person over on TH having issues was trying to record using their MDS-E10 as the recorder and that SCMS was preventing this (which shouldn't be the case based on your testing - assuming the "PRO" model is the same as the non-"PRO" version). Having re-read their post, however, there is nothing to confirm this is the way round they were doing things.
