  1. Cables for SRs- Uni/Superslot connectors.

    I remember as well and I would be interested in buying some also. Anyone?
  2. DIY external bag cart battery

    Alex, I can help you out. I have several pelican cases that are wired already. Just need to add a new battery.
  3. NEED Vdb Boom Pole Cleaning recommendations

    No one in the US offers this service for boom poles? Okay, any suggestions for somewhere I can send it?
  4. I have a Vdb boom pole that needs a cleaning/tune up. Any recommendations to send here in the US? Thanks!
  5. Boom operators - Cool photos

    Booming for Al McGuire in Utah (1997).
  6. Magliner Shelf trim

    I used the door trim as well. It uses a heat sensitive adhesive that for me, got messy down here in Florida. I've had to peel it off and clean the residue several times. I tried silicone and so far it's been fine.
  7. Mozegear TIG Q28 on a job, in a sync test

    Thanks Jason.
  8. Mozegear TIG Q28 on a job, in a sync test

    I used the mini output to the headphone in jack on the iPad. Scripty asked if I could do it and I wanted to find out. I thought you could use the stereo cable for a DSLR, so I tried it and adjusted the output level of the Tig.
  9. Mozegear TIG Q28 on a job, in a sync test

    The script super asked me to jam her iPad Pro with TC. She's using Movie Slate. I used a standard mini stereo to stereo, but couldn't get it to jam. Has anyone done this with success? Thanks.
  10. Installing an SSD in Mac Mini.

  11. Installing an SSD in Mac Mini.

    Thanks for the responses. I'm not so concerned about the physical installation (but I will heed your advice), it was more about getting the OS onto the new drive. OWC suggests doing a clean OS install before adding saved data from the old drive. Marc, which SSD drive did you buy?
  12. I have a Mini 2011 that I want to update to an SSD. My first concern is, how easy is it to install an operating system to the new drive? This was recommended before migrating content from the old drive. Second, which have you used or would recommend, Crucial or OWC SSD? Thanks in advance!
  13. 688 keyboard fail

    I would definitely consider Jim's recommendations, especially if they have been used successfully. I'm using a mini keyboard (brand name no idea) that I use with my Mac mini. It works perfectly with the 633 & 664, before and after newest update. However, it still has an issue with the 688 (updated to 4.00). What I have learned is if I unplug the keyboard, power down, wait a few seconds, power up and replug, it will work (as well as doing a quick boot override during power down).
  14. 688 keyboard fail

    Version 3.11
  15. 688 keyboard fail

    It's happening to me today. Worked great all morning. Reset for next scene (powered down 30 minutes) and now it won't work. Keyboard lights up for a moment, but not functional. I followed your suggestion Tom and bypassed the quick boot and it works now. Has anyone mentioned this to SD?
