Following on from the DV Head Clogging topic below, is anyone successfully running non JVC mini DV tapes in their JVC DV camcorder?

Have you mixed JVC DV tapes with other DV tape brands and if so, have you experienced any of the Sony/Panasonic problems reported by other users?

Panasonic, JVC and Fuji are all the same tape. I have had problems when I then used Sony tapes, especially the older ones. (I had some DV tapes from a while back, these did cause some clogging problems.

Sony has improved the tape in some new versions but IMO it stick with either the Pana camp or the Sony camp
