  1. All back to normal after the upgrade to 7.81B. I will keep monitoring but so far so good. Thanks everyone for their inputs on this.
  2. Trusting you guys! I just wanted to double check after I had done my latest tests. Ill report back once on 7.81B. Thanks
  3. Thanks all for the feedbacks. Latest update: First of all I have gone down to processor speed Normal as John suggested and I discovered that the problem appeared only when using the Trascend 64GB 800x as primary in combination with sandisk ultra 16GB 50MB/s and Transcend 16GB 133x as mirror cards. Instead if I used the 16GB cards as primary the audio files are not effected after mirroring. So as you mentioned it could be a mirroring problem when the machine try to deal with different speed of cf cards. Do you still reckon I should upgrade to 7.81B? I have been really happy with 7.81 and I know there are added features and everything but I am a big promoter of not upgrading unless you really need to. I just would like to be able to use the 64GB as primary as it is very convenient.
  4. Anyone experienced this noise in the recording after mirroring on Nomad? I was using SanDisk Ultra Compact Flash 16 GB 50 MB/s and Transcend 64GB 800x as Primary. Processor speed Fast 1 on 7.81 Firmware. I tried to remirror on a Transcend 16GB 133x which is recommended by Zaxcom but still no luck. Luckily the Marf file was fine and saved the day. Any tips on how to fix it or I should just send the machine to the mothership? Thanks in advance. Marco audio corrupt 3.mp4
  5. OK Matt thanks for pointing that out on the manual and I have myself RTFM (Thanks Mark) but I thought that as RPSharman mentioned and hopefully he had experienced, if you only wired 1&4 pin on the hirose you are able to only power the internal battery without charging it. Anyways my main question to you guys is Do you know if there is any way to NOT charge the internal battery at the same time as powering the unit using an external source? Basically I wasnt looking for something you can read on a manual but something out of the box. Maybe I will have to address my question directly to the SD people. Thanks for the comments.
  6. Hi guys just going back on this old topic. I came across another problem.. I have made an Hirose cable wired to 1 & 4 only (as RPSharman mentioned) to be able to power my 744 externally ONLY without charging it but for some strange reason the orange LED still blinks and charges the machine at same time as powering it. Now just to specify, the cable was made by a professional engineer and I went back to him to double test the cable and nothing wrong was found with it. So my question is,, Is anyone aware of any problems with firmwire 2.66v giving this problem? Or do you have any other thoughts on why this is happening? Thanks in advance.
  7. Thanks for your quick response. I think I have said charging in my post but I meant powering the machine while at work. I guess you are mentioning to have the 744s battery plugged in but what If I use the 744T with the NP29 only? Will that damage the machine? Sound Devices advices to have their battery plugged in at all the times during use.
  8. Hi there, I was wandering if anyone has ever experienced any problems powering a Sound Devices 744T using the hirose 4 pin with an NP29 NiCad having the machine's battery un-plugged? Apparently Sound Devices advices the users to keep the machine's battery always plugged in while powering it externally. Is there any reasons why I shouldnt do this? Can this damage the machine? I am planning to power my 744T using the NP29 NiCad and was thinking that if I'll keep the sound devices battery plugged in at the same time then the NP29 will keep charging the machine's battery and powering the device at the same time incurring in less power life. Any thoughts and ideas will be much appreciated. Thanks in Advance Marco
