Record not working? [solved]

Requires me to press ‘space bar’ each time to actually start the recording. Never seen this before, it would always work when hitting the ‘record’ function.

Is there a setting I may have accidentally changed?

Can’t work it out…

Certainly, otherwise the forum would be full of people posting this…
„External sync“ active…?

bingo, it was external sync, which I didn’t think would be the cause.
