I've been told that it doesn't do this if the bitrate it lowered (I use high - 8MBits/second). I haven't tried this yet.

What SD card do you use? I use the 8Mbps mode too, for about 1 year, never have the situation, maybe you can get clear how to remake the issue, then we can get feedback and ask a new custom firmware.

Fair comment...
I used a Transcend 32GB class 10.
My flying buddy also has a BEVRC DVR. His seems to crash more often than mine. I'll ask him what card he uses (although I'm pretty sure his is a class 10 as well).

They only seem to freeze when the video signal becomes noisy followed by a total loss of signal. We fly quads on 5.8Ghz so flying behind a row of trees at long range is enough to make it freeze. (Crashing your quad most certainly causes it!) Apart from that it records for long periods without fault. I think it has more to do with loosing sync (to many interrupts?) than writing to the SD card.

Got it, will test it and update later.

I have had this same problem as well. I think it always happened to me when I forgot to stop recording before pulling the video cable out of the recorder. Mine did leave an unplayable file on the SD card that I was able to fix and get playable with a utility program I found on sourceforge.com. DivFix I think.

Thanks for the Divfix lead.
I forgot to mention your specific issue.. Yes they also freeze if you switch off your plane (video transmitter) before stopping the DVR. That's a real pain because stopping your DVR isn't the first thing you think of when you land!

There is an issue with the #16 808 keycam where it randomly stops recording when recording to a cheap brand class 10 card. Maybe the issue is with the SD cards not the recorders.

If you have lockup problems, try a class 6 card instead.

BEVRC, no need to play a hero here... what you posted is a lie, you were well aware of the situation, you even commented on it some pages back but did nothing to help... which is why your customer service sucks and people should stay away from your store!

It's a standard 2.5mm 4 pole plug. I bought one from my local electronics store and made a custom cable with a 3.5mm plug on the other end that plugs straight in to my video receiver.

I did know it when I made the cable, lol. Just get a multimeter and see where each ring is connected to.
I think I even posted it somewhere, try searching this thread??

is there a video tutorial somewhere of how to make a cable like this? 2.5 to 3.5, using a multimeter to check the connections, soldering the connectors etc?

it's not hard to do mate. Get a 3.5mm 4 pole and a 2.5mm 4 pole. Post the pictures of those here and I will tell you where to solder. It isn't too hard if you can solder wires.
