    Question re: jamming a TCS :wave

    To me it looks very simple; you got standard IN and standard OUT connections from your Lemo, with the option (through menus) of swapping the IN for an additionnal OUT if you wish, including genlock. So you go with a common Lemo 5 pin wired as all the big players do (Sound Devices, Lectro, etc) and if you'd like to feed another nearby unit from your main one, you can easily do it just through the menus. This is also the connector used for genlock on multi-cam shoots. As additionnal info, since I just received my Ultrasync One units, they provide two cables identified as ''blue'' and ''red'' to ease up on setups I suppose; they're the same. Shell to shell, pin to pin (DIN 1.0/2.3 to BNC connectors). So if you swap your blue cable for a red one, everything should work all right. It's just a ''label'', if you wish...

    Question re: jamming a TCS :wave

    to follow: pin 2 is for IN/OUT depending of what you chose in the menus, pin 5 is OUT only so that makes it kind of a ''souped-up standard lemo connection'' … https://support.timecodesystems.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001143632-What-are-the-pins-used-for-in-the-pulse-and-wave-

    Question re: jamming a TCS :wave

    Yeah but that doesn't answer the question as to why they use the same pin (2) for both in and out ? First time I see that… testing the cables they sell would maybe bring light onto that question...

    Lectro IFB transmitter

    I guess the IFB mode with an SM series wouldn't work with the latest IFB units ? (the M2R rxs)

    NEW: Timecode Systems | UltraSync One

    There still is no miracle device yet but very near one ! I reckon I added one feature on top of what I was looking for from the start : -Screen showing TC -wireless sync between units and now: -ability to link to iPhone/android app and show TC on screen for script work or GoPro sync (I doubt sound people buy the GoPro backs from TS because they're not ''one model fits all'')

    NEW: Timecode Systems | UltraSync One

    Well, I'm at the local dealer right now and it desn't seem to work with only an Ultrasync ONE as a master... 🤔 The "braodcast to app" (to give it a name) is not a function available with the Ultrasync itself ... you probably use the Wave or Pulse unit to broadcast TC then...

    NEW: Timecode Systems | UltraSync One

    I got a question regarding the Ultrasync ONE: If I got the TCB app (the first app that came out for iPhone with Timecode Buddy line, NOT the Blink newer one), will it be able to link with the Ultrasync ONE master and simply display a TC on my screen ? In other words: do I absolutely need the Pulse or Wave unit to be able to display a TC on my phone ?

    Time Code

    Yes. First line of my post: ''... and if I had to buy right now, I'd go with Ultrasync One or … '' Concerning the ''you might want to hold off'' part newzhack, I guess you signed up for their black friday soon-to-be announcement ?

    Time Code

    I own Tentacles and Mozegear boxes and if I had to buy right now, I'd go with Ultrasync One or Betso boxes. What I miss now is capability to sync wirelessly multiple boxes (instead of ''re-doing'' the set box by box) and a display; for the market here, the FS7s have practically replaced the C300s which had a display at the back which allowed me to have a peek at the TC from time to time to be sure everything's all right.

    DPA slim cable getting stiff and brakes

    A guy I worked with last two weeks had two of them break. I got 4063s in my kit and so far so good (but don't use 'em often) and I'll be watching things about their response as to waranty. That could be a deal breaker for me if they ever say ''too late, sorry'' as there seems to be so much of these mics breaking either at the head (capsule) or along the wire.

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    What I meant is for quick spot checks here and there during the day and back from lunch; if you're one second off you know immediately. With my 633 it's been usefull sometimes just before shooting after a break since the internal clock has a limited time holding the TC . WHICH leads me to another topic: it would be great, since you already got a ''foot in the door'', to talk with Sound Devices about implementing an optional hardware (or software, as you wish) option transmitter that would work with the ACN system to send TC to our boxes from the mixer/recorder.

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Got both Mozegear and Tentacles and yes, since the Sony FS7 has taken its toll of the market here, I can't check the TC as easily as with the C300 which has an LCD on the back. The new unit from Denecke is nice but can't jam wirelessly. My next unit(s) would both have a display and the wireless jamming function.

    New iPower 9V alternative from Tenergy

    Well, apart from the ''swelling'' issue which I didn't encounter, after using and recharging the batts not more than 10-12 times (rarely use comteks on my shootings) one of my 4 batts died. CHarger lights up in green but no power on the comtek… well… a little more than a year and one out...
