  1. Like stuffing a marshmallow into a keyhole.
  2. Like I said, probably misremembered from something else. I found this in the manual - To ensure safety, the charger performs a battery health “impedance check” at the beginning of the program. If the battery fails this test, “HIGH” would be displayed and program will be terminated.
  3. From memory, so don't hold me to this. There's a "membrane" that separates the chemicals that breaks down over time/charges. So the chemicals are now mixing and causing the voltage spike, in a bad way. I'm going to Google this now, to see if my memory is garbage.
  4. Maybe a smallish campfire to keep the electronic components warmed-up.
  5. Cool. I'm actually assuming the supervising sound editor takes on the task. Thanks!
  6. Are you sure it happens with all the cameras? A common interference problem is a broken shield on BNC cables used for sending video from cam to video transmitter. I wouldn't be surprised if that's the culprit, but I would be surprised if it was happening on all cameras!
  7. Sooooo.... I was contacted by Showtime because they want to submit a project that I participated in for an award. They want a 750 word essay and timecode selections. Any tips from the group concerning the essay? I've never had to do anything like this and I have terrible writing skills. This was a group effort (obviously) so I'm hoping someone on the team with more experience will take the initiative, haha.
  8. Don't over complicate it. 1. You set the transmitter gain properly. 2. Max the receiver output. 3. Line input to the MixPre. 4. Gain up the channel until your meters are where you want them. Personally, I like to hover around -14 to -10 dbfs. 5. Make fine adjustments to the mix with the channel fader. 6. Adjust headphone volume to a comfortable listening level.
  9. You can get a DC blocking circuit built into your audio cables. Personally, I've used 411s and SRb and definitely sent p48 to them accidentally. Nothing was damaged.
  10. I've never built a car, but I know you can get different tires for one. Common sense isn't so common...even with 30 years experience. I hope you remember me as the guy who tried to help you, but you were too proud to admit that you didn't ask the question that you wanted the answer to!
  11. My apologies. This used to be a forum of professionals. A place where a noob could ask a simple question and get a simple answer. Instead, noobs ask simple questions and then bristle at the tone of the response, instead of realizing the question they asked was answered succinctly and accurately. If you want to know how to wire a specific lav to a specific connector, ask. Next question - "How long is a string?"
  12. I always pushed it to the limit. That being said, I was never happy with the performance of a softie 😁
  13. This is a very difficult question to answer... without being sarcastic. Of course it's possible.
  14. Sounds like classic SD card failure. Try a different card.
