  1. Alvin's cables, has anyone used them?

    I have a couple of their cables and haven't had any issues so far in the year or so I've been using them.
  2. Withholding Audio Files

    I've generally only hold files if I know I'm not getting paid what was agreed before. I've had a producer not pay and then asked for a pickup day like 2 months later. I jumped at that chance since I had already given him footage from before.
  3. Buying a used Schoeps Colette?

    I bought one on ebay for around $1200 and I've been using it for a year or so no problems, sounds great. Of course, you never know with ebay is the thing!
  4. DIY sharkfins (Ramsey LPY41)

    I figured I'd give this a go as well. Quite happy with the way they turned out, although it wasn't as cheap as I thought it would be, haha.
  5. Zaxcom Bluetooth

    I'd be happy if they just added Android support for the dongle. I'm not sure if that's on their to-do list.
  6. Quick question about tentacle sync

    There is no display, but a little led light does blink on the top of every sec.
  7. Rodelink power solution

    Joon, you seem to be right. I was finally able to wire something that worked, used a 12v to 5v converter to get the power to the right voltage, but I am getting a ground loop when using the battery as well. I'll have to try the small charger to see if that works.
  8. Rodelink power solution

    @codyman I did notice that, but was going to see if I could find a cheaper solution first. I picked up a switchcraft 761k barrel plug, which I hope will do it. I do see myself just buying that cable in the end if I can't figure this out though, lol.
  9. Rodelink power solution

    So I noticed that the Rodelink wireless system has an option to power the unit through a micro usb cable instead of batteries. I've got a BDS system but unfortunately no one (including Rode) sells a micro usb to barrel DC cable. Anyone have any success making one? I tried but can't seem to get a working one.
