  1. Larry, it looks super impressive. Kudos to you and the team. I hate to be that guy requesting features before it even comes out, but would there be any way for it to emulate (might not be the right word) NA/NU mode for my Digital Hybrid Wireless transmitters? Essentially, to receive from the legacy transmitters. Manual points to no. I was just talking last night about needing a small receiver with this frequency range for monitoring talent wireless while we're wiring. Keep up the great work!
  2. Wow! I had no idea...but is it compatible with the older hybrid modulations (400?). It appears not. But if so, it's a real winner.
  3. I just got one and I calibrated it to the Audio Root Bag distro and things seem fine so far on my end. Nothing strange regarding voltage.
  4. Here we are 7 years later. Any 48fps yet?
  5. Thanks for the wise words. Motion capture is how they shot Avatar. Motion control is pre-programmed computer (and timecode) driven camera moves. I'm doing the latter. In Reaper I plan to have Music on Track 1, LTC TC on track 2 (either pre-generated in Reaper or downloaded for free with http://elteesee.pehrhovey.net/) Audio then goes out through my interface where I'll send LTC timecode directly to the motion control rig to trigger it. TC will also go out to a hop, being received by the slate for visual reference to match to the song in post. Meanwhile, the song goes into my trusty old 552, being mixed out post-fade to a hop to record to the camera, a big speaker, and VTR. Since we're not recording any sound, there will be no secondary timecode and no TOD. I don't know about jamming the camera as well or just letting that go. I think another thread here said don't worry about camera's tc metadata. I'm a bit confused by this. There will be a unique identifier in that the slate will have different info on it each time (take 1, take 2), but the only footage recorded is in camera. Am I missing something?
  6. Reviving this thread - How "stable" is continuous timecode coming out of Reaper on a 2018 macbook pro? Will there be any lost frames or skips? Is there a more stable way to do it that won't involve audible scrubbing that comes with a 7 series recorder? Any other gotchas when it comes to timecode synced motion control? Thanks
  7. My heart would sink if this happened to me. I think back to all the years I only brought one recorder to set and it makes me nauseous. Now for bag work, I always bring my 552 and a zoom H4n and leave them in the car. Just knowing they are there makes all the difference.
  8. Once you got it up and running from the internal supply, did you try to then switch it over to external? Is it possible you have a faulty battery/cup/distro/power cable all of the sudden? The hirose jack on my 664 once came loose after years of wear and tear and I had to send it in.
  9. I don't use filtration, but I'm looking into filtering my IFB transmissions so they don't "bleed" out into my receivers.
  10. I'm using a Venue2 in A and B band, and using 75% single block transmitters. I find this "hybrid" way of working to give me enough flexibility and is a good way to make the full transition into wideband.
  11. New question I haven't seen posted here. If you're going off-speed, say 60fps, and they want to watch playback after a take, can most of the big-boy cameras record audio while off-speed? I don't believe they do... So if there is Video Assist on set, if you send them the sped up music, can they slow it down for playback and if so, should you send it to them pitch corrected or pitch preserved?
  12. Does the D2 do both NA and NU modes?
  13. 100% agree. That said, I do have it and have not had any issues in the bag. Have not tried it with the cl-12.
  14. Thank you. I get too much loss after 100 feet. Are you amplifying the signal?
  15. Yes. I was curious how S Harber does it and if/how he integrates that into his remote system.
  16. I just got off the phone with him as well and he was super helpful. My HMa is at 1.02 and he said don't even worry about updating it. If I really want to, I can send it to one of their service centers and they can do it but there is essentially no need.
  17. Yes, I'm wondering the same thing among many other questions regarding firmware updates. Karl told me: "Benjamin, what I'd recommend is giving us a call and talking to Gerland Weesner who can talk you through it. ... Gerald can be reached at 800-821-1121 in the US or 001 505 892 4501 from outside the US."
  18. I used to do the same until I discovered LMR 240 Ultra Flex bnc.
  19. Super confused... From https://www.lectrosonics.com/Support/category/98-smwb-smdwb.html : "If you have SMWB version 7.xx firmware, use only SMWB version 7.xx firmware and boot loader version 2.01." Where do I get boot loader version 2.01 (for my SMDWBs)? The only download I see is 1.03 Also: my SMWB is at version SMWB 1.04. I don't know what /X means but none of the bullet points seem to address vanilla "SMWB" firmware lower than 6.xx...unless /X means with or without a suffix? And finally: "New firmware versions with iXML header support require a bootloader update before they are installed. This applies to the following firmware versions: SMWB, SMDWB v6.52 SMWB/E07, SMDWB/E07 v1.50 SMWB/E01, SMDWB/E01 v1.50 SMWB/X, SMDWB/X v1.50" Does this apply to those firmware versions AND newer? Or just to those exact firmware versions? I know Karl or Gordon spruced this page up, but I need this to be so easy a caveman can do it. Edit: One more. For the HMa, " Please note: version 6.x firmware for the HMa is for use only in new product shipped after October 13, 2018 to US customers. These will bear the following new FCC ID numbers: DBZHMAA1A DBZHMAB1A" My Hma is FCCID'd as DBZHMAA1 (no A at the end). Does this mean I stay in the firmware version 1.xx line? Do I install HMa/E01 Firmware Update v1.04 or is that the European version?
  20. Just went back to redownload this paid app on my Android after many years. Why isn't it available? I bought it, I want it back. Send help!
  21. Thanks Larry. This is helpful and actually makes sense. I didn't think I needed attenuators but wanted to experiment because my (flawed) math wasn't in line with my real world experience (which has been good!). I thought all RF "gain" was the same. Had no idea. There's no way I'm ever coming close to +5dB so I'm going to keep truckin' as I have been! Really appreciate what you and Karl have taught me. Love Lectro!
