what would cause one to record in Mono? Had mine out with us this past weekend and it's been doing fine ion playbacks. For some reason when I downloaded the file yesterday and started listening to it, the sound was coming out of one speaker only.

Try playing some music through your system and see if you can hear that through both speakers.
I am not familiar with your exact make and model of dvr so I don't know if you might have a ( stereo/ mono) switch on it or not.
It's always best to start with the simplest things first.
I hope this helps.

And make sure you didn't accidentally turn the "balance" all the way over to one side.

Them things are easy to push the wrong thing or think you have one control on screen when it is something else. Then it is a pain trying to figure out what you did to screw it up.


I have a nice TASCAM one - and I use it just enough to forget where all the controls are on the little screen - and seem to always mess up something.

But operator error would be my guess, being as how I suffer from that problem a lot..LOL

Them manuals....so when you screw things up you can look it up in the troubleshooting section and undo whatever ya did! LOL The one that came with mine looks complicated, so I haven't read it yet. The box it came in had all the features printed on it, so I know what it can do.

One day I will figure out how to use the features. Sure hope I haven't lost the manual, as I know I will screw it up a few times in the process........

If your recorder has a detachable mic it will do that if you don't have the mic completely seated. If it has a detachable mic test it by making sure the mic is seated properly, download the short recording of your voice and see if it plays in stereo.
