I have a Peak Performance video analysis system in my lab and the VCR with
this system is malfunctioning. As I digitize a trial, the VCR is
simultaneously erasing the videotape images. If I try to view a
previously digitized portion of the videotape, only static or "noise"
appears on the video monitor. Has anyone had this problem before? If so,
how did you solve it? This VCR is approximately 7 years old, is this an
indicator that it needs to be replaced? Any insights or comments would be

Additionally, based on previous postings to BIOMCH-L, it is apparent that
a large number of researchers have a Peak Performance video analysis
system in their lab. Is there an interest in forming a separate bulletin
board to answer technical questions, problems, etc. associated with the
Peak system? Or will these problems be general enough to be applicable to
the biomechanics community at-large and as such, 'BIOMCH-L' is the
appropriate forum for questions related to the Peak Performance system?
Again, any comments or discussion would be welcomed.

As is customary, I will post responses.
