  1. Utility wouldn't be able to use the Timecode Buddy app, because the TRX+ don't have wifi built in. Utility would need a Wifi Master, :pulse, or :wave on that follow cart to use the app. They could alternatively set the TC and UB within the TRX+ manually. So essentially you could go without the Wifi master, :pulse, or :wave and just go with 3 TRX+ if using the app isn't a deal breaker. The Wifi Master and TRX are from the same "family" so there shouldn't be problems in jamming units. It's been a while since I've used the wifi master and TRXs as I've moved on to :wave and USOs so I'm not sure how the TCB app is holding up. Maybe someone with better long term memory than I do can chime in and just make sure everything I'm saying is correct.
  2. TRX+ connecting to what model? Not entirely sure, but if I can remember you can do it, but you wouldn't be able to get blink data from it.
  3. Attach a small bluetooth speaker to your boom pole.
  4. @drpro @tincali You don't have to pry open the USOs like the TRXs. It's just the corner T5 torx screws and the nuts around the DIN conenctors. I've had to replace a screen after being dropped and was able to do it quickly. As for the switches, it may be the the piece that actually pushes the button getting stuck. Could need a new membrane? I haven't opened mine up in a while so I can't give a definitive answer. It's also a good idea to buy some sort of case for USO. A drop from 3 or 4 feet can crack the screen if you don't have a case. I don't know the options, but my problem with the official TCS silicone cases is that they use a thin metal plate for the velcro. That plate will keep coming out of the case (it's glued and held in by a 3-4mm lip) everytime you remove it off the camera. I've even had the plate break after so many jobs. I ended up removing the plate and just crazy gluing velcro onto the case itself. Contact support. They have done me well so far and they have even sent me a video on how to open up a trx case.
  5. Shouldn't have any issues. You could even boot from it externally if you have an enclosure for it if you want to test it out.

  7. You can also buy BNC to DIN 1.0/2.3 adapters which is a godsend.
  8. You can try a legacy copy of Viscosity by Sparklabs. Not sure how secure or stable it is since it is on 10.6. https://www.sparklabs.com/viscosity/legacydownloads/
  9. I don't put them into regular service after they show HIGH even if I'm able to recondition. Usually after the recondition they don't seem to last much longer.
  10. The WBs can't do 250mW in general, period. There is an isolator in non-WB units and it's only limited to one block. As for getting it to 100mW.. Probably possible, but illegal.
  11. I currently use a 4RU rack space case. With the 3RU Smartview Duo and the Remote Audio 1RU speakeasy. It would be crazy if I could fit both pieces of gear into a 2U case. I'm not sure if that's even possible with the width of the BMD. I also wouldn't mind disconnecting the cables in the back of the BMD to get back into the case if I needed to. It honestly wouldn't be advantageous to me if the BMD still took the 3RU and slid back into the case. I could easily just put the rack case cover on to protect the screens if I wanted to during transport. The ability to make it compact first, then tiltable is how I would personally prioritize my setup.
  12. Tiltable, but also able to fold down and slide horizontal into a rack space.

    More like 9k USD.
  14. I had this happen on an approved SD card. It was basically white noise at the end of the last file I recorded. Wasn't on the CF. I trashed the SD card thereafter. Haven't had a problem since.
