I have been using an MPVR for my helmet cam for a few months now and recently tried the A-HD. Unfortunately all my videos recorded from the video input on the A-HD were very bright and washed out. The MPVR videos has much more color. Took me about 20 mins to alter the videos to get them look even close as good as the MPVR. Has anyone experienced something like this yet? Is there a setting that controls this on the video input or maybe something wrong with my A-HD or is that just how it is ... thanks

Welcome aboard rdlugos

Allow the A-HD to turn on and adjust itself you may be turning on and hitting record too fast.

MPVr 640x480 mono sound better sound
"A-HD 720x480 Mono/mono stereo sound lower sound
"I do not have any issues with the A-Hd in that fashion. possably what firmware is the camcorder running on that may be the issue?

So you are saying they coloring and brightness is the same when recording using the video input on both the MPVR and A-HD?? (other than resolution) .. this was an A-HD I got from Target. It was glossy black

Recorded on the same day with the same camera plugged into the Video Input

Example of A-HD

Looks like the MPVR has better color saturation. Just like the MPVR+ I used to have, it doesn't record interlacing and cuts out half of the resolution giving you only 240 lines and then interpolating it up to 480. This is why your second images have jagged edges. But the A-HD delivers a softer imge, whether it is due to actually using interlacing or because it just interpolates more, is unknown at this point. I'd need some sample video to examine.
