  1. Generally I keep mine between 15 and 25, depending on the situation.
  2. Thanks for the reply! That project may be a bit above my pay grade. Wonder if any local LA shops would be able to build me a cable.
  3. I recently bought a similar wireless drone setup - maybe you can help me. How the heck do you get the video signal from the downconverter into the Tx? I need some sort of adapter for BNC to the drone cable, but I can't find one after hours of research.
  4. Thanks Eric - yeah, I have a feeling this is the issue. It seemed very odd to me that the M and F pins were different. Probably the rental house's screwup.
  5. Thanks for the help guys. I'll grab an N cell and try it out. I didn't realize the mic itself had an internal battery.
  6. I had a Comtek Tx go down on me last month. I shipped it to Comtek and they replaced it with no charge. Apparently the crystal had broken somehow. Sent from my XT1096 using Tapatalk
  7. Hey ladies & gents - Anyone familiar with this mic? I have one rented for a show on Monday and I'm not getting anything out of it. It's wired into an AT8531 power supply (also supplied by rental house). It's powered on, but the XLR out of it gives me no signal. Am I doing something dumb? The cable out of the mic is a Ta4 and the the female end on the power supply is ta3, which seems odd, but it's what was supplied and the cables fit fine. Before anyone says RTFM, I can't find one anywhere online. The rental house is closed too. Thanks! Sent from my XT1096 using Tapatalk
  8. You could paint the stands white? Nice looking speakers.
  9. So sad. The list of great games on here is giant. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  10. I'm keeping 3 TX in there. I like to have everything I need in my sound bag for quick run+gun ENG jobs. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  11. How about under the 633? I like to keep a Sony L batt on the underside of the 633 as emergency backup, but maybe that's unnecessary. There's also a fair amount of cabling under there. Maybe I can make it work though, I'll give it a shot! Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  12. Here's my current setup. Really liking the Orca, it was a recent upgrade. I do wish I had a better place for the NP1 cup, though - everything but the side pocket is taken up. Maybe I'll rearrange at some point soon to stick it in the back pocket?
  13. Onkyo Reciever, Polk 5.1 system, Pioneer sub & Philips Fidelio cans. Running my PC and a bunch of game consoles into it, as well as my AT turntable. It's a good midrange setup, I think the Polks sound amazing for the relatively low price I paid for them.
  14. Curious to see your setup. I assume you rewired the tx to run off of DC and take coax in? Seems hard to find adapters for this drone stuff. Seems like you could run the TX off of a drone battery if need be.
  15. Has anyone had a problem with files disappearing on the F8? Editorial says I'm missing two takes (the only two takes of that shot) from a shoot 2 weeks back. At this point both original SD cards have been formatted but both the original and duplicate card dumps are missing those takes, although I believe editorial just dumps the slot one card onto two drives. Does the F8 'write over' takes with the same name? I'm struggling to understand what happened here, and the only possible solution I can come up with is that I incorrectly named the scene number and the f8 'wrote over' the takes. But it seems crazy that this would be possible without some sort of error message. This was on firmware 2.0.
  16. I've done it before with no problem, so it's not an 'every time' problem, but it did happen so I'll avoid doing it in the future.
  17. Had one of these hard-lock on me yesterday while renaming a file. I went into the SD card file structure to listen to the start of a file to ensure I was renaming the correct one, and once I heard the marker I pressed REC to get into file options (I find it slightly unsettling to press REC for anything but speeding the device, but I digress). After pressing REC while the unit was still playing back the file, it stopped playback and showed me the spinning 'loading' wheel, which kept 'loading' seemingly forever. After about a minute I decided it had frozen, and after about 3 I popped the battery to reset the unit (holding the power button did nothing). It's possible there is another way to hard-reset the unit, but I'm not aware of it and I was on a fast-moving set. Files seemed unaffected, but a note for F8 users - STOP the recording you are listening to before going into file options, to be on the safe side.
  18. II was joking! But I'm sure it's only a matter of time before interfering with drones becomes a real problem. Could just go the low tech route: http://gizmodo.com/watch-a-fisherman-catch-a-drone-in-flight-1722948154
  19. Time to invest in one of these... http://www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/battle-innovations-anti-drone-gun/ Sent from my XT1096 using Tapatalk
  20. Wow, what a detailed analysis!
  21. I'm all Eneloop Pro unless shooting somewhere where having a power tap is impossible, then I chew through my rechargeables and swap to lithium.
  22. I'm working with this next week, so I'll try and post impressions. I played with it at Location Sound a bit in preparation and it seemed like a really solid box. No decent take naming is a bummer though. Gonna bring my iPad and try out the companion app - it'll be my first time using a touch-screen control surface so wish me luck!
  23. My messy bag for today: Maybe time to upgrade bag size, I'm pretty much grown out of my Petrol. Sent from my XT1096 using Tapatalk
  24. Thought you guys would appreciate some good mic-based humor. Some strong language. http://www.cc.com/video-clips/z95ofl/key-and-peele-the-morty-jebsen-show-goes-off-the-rails---uncensored
