Got reply from Aiptek support (I sended to them almost exact copy of my first post here, plus asked for a new firmware):

"Dear Sir

The AV cable you used is the one we bundled with the package ?
If not , could you please try the cable we bundle ?

Thank you ~"

Very helpful , thanks, Aiptek!

Piterplus, it does seem to be a problem.

Some devices have auto format switching between various PAL and NTSC formats. Don't know if it negotiates with the receiving recording device though, but DVD players are one device.

There is a big problem with component/analogue signalling too. The signalling characteristics varies a lot, and don't follow specs so well, which makes it hard to record accurately. If you haven't tried it yet, it might be worth trying. The other problem is the port on the other device might have a problem, even macro-vision protection signalling. Try a number of different devices with clean signalling and different encoding and see if they all the same.

Thanks Wayne, I camo to the same conclusion myself.
Somehow my A-HD+ cannot automaticaly recognize signal from TV, so it came to a freeze.
But I dont think that it is TV problem since I tried to connect camcorder to all my TV's, which varies from modern one (50" Panasonic plasma PV700) to some older CRT (Sharp, Daewoo). Result was the same.
At the same time it can record from DVD and other camcorder.
Unfortunately I dont have any VCR at home, so I cannot test A-HD+ with it.

Piter, you might try playing a normal camera recording from the other cam through the TV and record it from one of the TV's outputs to see what happens.

Yes, I tried that, and A-HD+ can record it, but it lead nowhere, because it may be that signal "came through" TV's outputs without changes directly from one camcorder to another. And still, My A-HD+ cannot record TV programs from same TV outputs from which it was recording other's camcorders playback.
Aiptek keeps silence...
