Before attempting to Log and Capture, make sure the Mini-DV VTR (Video Tape Recorder, or "Deck") is powered "on" and properly connected. Your NTSC video monitor (TV) should also be powered "on" and set to channel/input "Video 1" (or "Line A" on the JVC monitors).
your Mini-DV tape into the VTR, and rewind to the beginning
of your footage if you like. Try pressing "Play" on
the VTR - you should see your video playing on the TV monitor,
and you're all set to "Log and Capture".
