  1. Hi John, I have an OLD Rock n Roller (5/8" Axle) and these wheels fit perfectly: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019Y4OWSI I'd measure your axle diameter and take a look at Amazon, they have tons of variations.
  2. Given the amount the Fader value is "dancing" in the screen, the pot is bad. Send it in to Sound Devices to have it repaired.
  3. How old is the drive itself? Sounds more like a media issue than a connector issue. I'd connect the drive to a host PC/Mac system and run some diagnostics on it and perhaps a low level format.
  4. Yes, the timecode square wave is a Bi-Phase signal. Flip the polarity and a 1 is still a 1 and a 0 is still a 0.
  5. Tomoko, A&S is Sound Devices distributor in Hong Kong, they would be a good start: https://asbroadcast.com/
  6. Another good option would be to buy a pre-made BNC-BNC with a cable of the proper diameter for the Lemo5. Cut it in half, solder on the Lemo5, done. This way you can have nice molded strain relief BNC connections.
  7. Cable Techniques came out with some pretty nice low profile TA3/4/5 connectors last year: https://www.cabletechniques.com/lopro-xlr-mini-xlr
  8. I own one of the Behringer CT-200s. Pretty simple to use, but sometimes I think it would be easier to interpret the CT-100. You can use a Multi-meter, but a tester would be much faster if you have a lot of cable to test.
  9. Drawmer makes a 4x4 active split, probably isn't cheap: http://www.drawmer.com/products/kickbox/4x4r-rackmount-active-splitter.php
  10. RTS is a brand of production intercom systems commonly used in production trucks and venues: http://www.rtsintercoms.com/rts/line Much like Kleenex it has come to stand for any 2 wire intercom system. RTS systems carry 2 channels of intercom and power for the beltpacks over a regular 3 pin XLR cable. RTS1/RTS2 allows the user to select which intercom channel to transmit.
  11. Keep in mind, the SRs draw relatively low current (~150mA, IIRC), which works well with 2 9V cells. If you try it with other equipment that takes an L-Mount, say a Sound Devices 7-Series or 6-Series recorder, your run time would be measured in minutes. Also, if said equipment had internal charging for the L-Mount, like the 7-Series, that would cause problems as well.
  12. While the 6 Series all have analog trims and can't be ganged, the 688 can read the setting of the trim pot. This allows you to set all the inputs to precisely the same gain.

  14. IIRC, It's a Switchcraft 761K. Long shank, 2.5mm inner diameter
  15. I can't think of any cameras that record sound when in a non-sync frame rate. Many cameras also freeze their timecode as well when in a non-sync frame rate, so attempting to provide timecode for them would be fruitless. The best thing you can do is have a properly jammed sync box at your frame rate so that when the camera comes back to sync speed, they will have the proper timecode available to re-jam automatically.
