VIXIA HF G40 dual recording option grayed out Only Standard and Relay are options. Why?

I've never used the Dual Recording only Standard Recording.  I have 64gb micro SD cards in both slots.

I understand in dual recording, I can set card A in either AVCHD or MP4 and card B in another mode.

However, dual recording is gray out so I can't select this mode.

Why?

First, I would avoid using micro-SD cards.  They cause all sorts of problems.

Are you perhaps using Cinema mode? Page 45 of the User Manual shows Cinema as disabled (i.e. wouldn't be a mode that would support dual slot recording).

I was reading the manual and this is why I wanted to use the feature.  As I reread that page, right at the bottom, clear as day, it won't do dual recording in these modes.  I changed it and voila, dual recording became available.  Now washing egg off my face.

I have movie format set to AVCHD at 59P.  Not allowed in dual/mode.

 

Thank you!
