I have a recent model low-end vcr, a JVC HR-A591U. Because it is stripped down, it doesn't have an INDEX feature, to find the start of recordings. However, i noticed that when I use the INDEX feature on my other VCR, I can still find the INDEX location of recordings made on the JVC. So the JVC does put index marks on the tape, but how to get the JVC to find the INDEX marks? I tried the first 255 EFC's on my C7 remote, and couldn't get it to find the index mark. I used a JVC remote from an older VCR that has the indexing feature, but it didn't work on the HR-A591U.

Anyone know of a way that I could convince my JVC that it CAN read the INDEXING marks on the recordings it creates, if it will only try? Could JP1 help here, or perhaps EFC's from other JVC vcr's? Thing is, if I can't get the JVC to locate the indexing marks that it records, the VCR is useless to me. All it has is a counter, and it's just too time-consuming to find anything on tape otherwise!
