ok, so this is what is going on. I'm tring to do a tip I learned from a mechanics forum for trouble shooting those wonderful sparatic (sp?) problems with machines I can never seem to catch. I allways see the aftermath of it. So, I want some kind of video camera I can mount on a tripod and set to record on, let's say, a hour loop. Then after the machine acts up. I can get it running again, and veiw the tape on what happened. I talked to the guy at wal-mart, but he had no clue. So hopefully someone from here can lead me the right way.
