  5. Pull out video monitor

    I'm changing up the monitor situ on my cart (again). Adding a pullout screen and using a Decimator Design DMON-6S as a multi-viewer. There are a few monitor options out there, but only a couple that I've seen on rigs. The DataVideo and the one offered by Rackmountmart.com are two I've seen in use. Here are the links: http://www.datavideo.com/us/product/TLM-170PM http://rackmountmart.com/rmLCD/lcd1U17-018.htm If anyone has any experience with these, or any others (good/bad/indifferent) please let me know. Thanks and much appreciated.
  6. Xantrex inverter won't… invert

    Hello Blas, Sorry to read of your troubles. In troubleshoot mode, have you simply tried a single device...say the Yamaha O1v off the inverter/distro (Furman)? Also, I read that you are using a conditioner after the Inverter output, not a regulator. A regulator would cause some interesting draw fluctuations. The conditioner is just a really good power strip. I use a Furman AR1215 before the Inverter. And a conditioner/strip after the output. If you are running your whole cart off the output of the inverter, as this is how I read it, you might be into a load issue. I think I mentioned to you that I run all DC off a PSC Powerstar and only the AC items (Yamaha and a Fostex RM2 speaker) off the Xantrex HF1000 inverter system. The load on the inverter is super light, but it serves me well. That said, I would start with eliminating all items, then adding them to see where the problem occurs. Hard to armchair troubleshoot, but that's a good start. PWP
  7. The word from Yamaha is: We are currently testing the compatibility of Yamaha products with Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11) operating system. The compatibility information for each softwares and drivers will be regularly updated on this page, please see the chart below in order to see the current support status. http://yamahacommercialaudiosystems.com/downloads_brwstype_detail.php?prodID=1019&doc_type=Firmware Which I read as ... it doesn't work, and we'll let you know.
  8. After updating to El Capitan (10.11.4) the current version of Yamaha Studio Manager and Editor don't appear to recognize the older VCM consoles as a Host. Has anyone found a work around for this? Apparently the O1v96i isn't a problem. Thanks all.
  9. Rack drawer custom foam

    Finally have an update and picture to complete this thread. I highly recommend mycasebuilder.com. Here's the rack drawer.
  10. Rack drawer custom foam

    I chose the denser foam which should, according to them, allow for a tighter configuration of cut outs. I opted for the "re-do" coverage, which they will re-do the design if it doesn't work for me.

    I've done one drawer as a test for MyCaseBuilder. Let's see how this rolls.
  12. Rack drawer custom foam

    Hello Brain Trust, I need some recommendations. I'm re-doing the top couple of drawers in my utility/follow cart. The pluck foam has finally disintegrated. I need some custom foam cut for my transmitters, mics and accessories. I'm Los Angeles, so anything local would be great. Also interested in the MyCaseBuilder custom work, and impressions of that. Thanks! PWP
