  1. On a whim, I tried loading up the secure HTTPS version of this site (https://jwsoundgroup.net versus http://jwsoundgroup.net). Before, I usually got an error message since the site doesn’t have HTTPS enabled, but what I get today is something totally unexpected… Tried it in Firefox, Safari, Chrome, with my browser extensions enabled, with my browser extensions disabled, and on my phone using mobile data. Same thing. Is it happening for anyone else? https://jwsoundgroup.net

    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    I remember you use DonorBox to accept donations on your Weebly website – I also use it for nonprofit stuff, and fortuitously, they launched weekly and annual payment options earlier today, in addition to the monthly option they already had. Oh, and it turns out you have the annual option already enabled on your DonorBox page!

    Off topic, but I’ve been wondering – is there currently a way to set up recurring donations to you? Otherwise I just have an annual calendar reminder to donate $12.

    Paging @Jeff Wexler, in case he hasn’t seen this yet.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    Ah, I understand. Thanks for clarifying.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    What issues do you personally encounter, exactly? I’m aware of Rado’s critique about the shielding, but I’ve quite literally seen nothing but praise about these batteries on this forum. IKEA’s website displays availability, though it’s not as up-to-date as the info you get from calling IKEA at +1 (888) 888-4532.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    What’s the next best thing to the IKEA LADDA 2450 batteries today? The sole IKEA store in my state doesn’t have them, and an IKEA USA rep tells me most of their Midwest stores (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin) are no longer ordering stock. Wondering if there’s a similarly economical alternative, short of hiring someone on Craigslist in Los Angeles to ship some LADDAs.

    How would anyone get a return on investment on a Cantar then?

    Deity Microphones going Wireless

    If they’re going to stay a budget brand, I’d like to see them improve upon Sennheiser’s G3/G4 bodypacks. All-metal hardware, ability to connect different antennas, better dynamic range, and digital transmission. Oh, and timecode, since these budget systems usually end up as camera hops. At the same time, I’d like it to be as small as the G3/G4 (cough RodeLink cough), with its locking connectors, and its easy user experience. If I can dream, then I want some all Zaxcom-level benefits at a lower price.

    Haha, I dislike running websites myself for this reason. It’s a dark art.

    Good time to change control panel and FTP passwords at the web host as well. And while on the topic of HTTPS, I’d love it if this forum used it. I use Cloudflare for my websites and it’s free and easy to setup SSL/HTTPS security.

    Editing numerous times – Bad?

    I have a tendency to make one or two edits to most things I post, usually to re-word something or to add onto the post. Recently, I edited this recent post in the Zoom F8n topic probably six times as I found more and more things to put in it, and part of me felt guilty thinking I might break something on the site as a result, or that you (Mr. Wexler) might have a flood of notifications about it. I figured I should make sure: Does repeatedly editing a post pose any harm to the site or be a nuisance for you or Laurence (or anyone else for that matter)?

    Haha, good to know I’m not alone.
  15. Video/sound professional Curtis Judd just published a video about his sound bag, including his Inspired Energy battery setup. He notes (at 5:28) his only criticism of the IE battery system is that the battery isn’t able to lock into his cup adapter, in contrast to the NP-1 system. I was fully onboard with buying into the IE system until I heard this. (Though as I hesitate, I recognize the IE system is the inevitable successor to the aging NP-1 system, as consensus goes). To Inspired Energy battery users – and users of its Remote Audio Hi-Q and Audioroot eSMART variants – is there a better way to ensure a reliable connection with the battery than gaffer tape?

    Securing connections to Inspired Energy / Hi-Q / eSMART batteries.

    I actually haven’t invested in either system yet. Right now I’m at square one, powering my F4 with USB battery packs. An actual power distribution setup for both the recorder and wireless is not too far behind, though.

    Remote Audio Adapt-a-pak Pro Kit.

    I enjoy your posts a lot, so if you can vouch for it, I’m sold on getting one. What did you add to the kit? Looks like it’s my next Father’s Day gift as well.

    Remote Audio Adapt-a-pak Pro Kit.

    I’ll keep it short – To those who have amassed a handy collection of adapters, how does Remote Audio’s Adapt-a-pak Pro Kit stack up? Would you use more than half of these adapter types regularly in, say, a year’s worth of work? To prevent any confusion, I’m not talking about the smaller Lite Kit.

    Of course. Though I once accidentally annoyed a moderator on a different web forum, since every time I edited a comment, it would end up in their spam filter. Just don’t want a similar thing happening. Not the most urgent of concerns, I know.

    Pictures up load problem

    After trying to upload some product images for my F8n topic, it seems that the limit is somewhere between 3.2 MB and 3.6 MB. Probably 3.5 MB!

    Securing connections to Inspired Energy / Hi-Q / eSMART batteries.

    I thought so, just making sure Audioroot didn’t add anything proprietary!

    Securing connections to Inspired Energy / Hi-Q / eSMART batteries.

    Thanks, I’ll use that! Edit: Just to be certain, I assume that Audioroot cup works with the Inspired Energy-branded batteries as well, would that be correct?

    Remote Audio Adapt-a-pak Pro Kit.

    I thought that, though I was wondering if this would be a better alternative. It’s hard to buy an adapter on a moment’s notice, since there aren’t any sound shops in Michigan, music/audio stores are sparse, and RadioShack has gone out of business. I might not be thinking of another place to pick up audio gear, but I don’t want to be caught in the middle of a shoot without a necessary adapter and waiting for Amazon to deliver one. I definitely need some essentials, which other threads cover.
