  1. Still works in the blog, but I guess JW doesn't host for forever :-( I've re-attached it below. Happy scanning! Freq Sheet.pdf

  3. I'm happy to say that we finally have released the Android version of TV Timecard. Sorry for the delay, but it's finally here and it's in tip top shape. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, feel free to reach out to me anytime. Google Play store link here. Reviews are always appreciated. We have a couple ideas still to come for both platforms, but this was at the top of our priority list. Thanks y'all!
  4. Just wanted to invite any mixers or others interested in sound in the Texas, Oklahoma or West Louisiana areas out to our 3rd Annual Lone Star Mixer Mixer this weekend in Dallas. We at Vandelay Sound Exports are hosting it at a local brewery, Texas Ale Project, and our friends at Gotham Sound are sponsoring it. We have lots of great giveaways and demo gear. Reps from Orca, Zaxcom, Lectrosonics and Sound Devices will be in attendance to show you the ins and outs of their products. If you're available, you don't really have an excuse to not come hang out with your compadres. What: Social event for sound mixers and others interested in sound for television and film When: Sunday, January 17th @ 4pm Where: Texas Ale Project, 1001 N Riverfront Blvd, Dallas, TX 75207 Entry Fee: FREE! However, we are asking for nonperishable food items to donate to the Tarrant County College Northeast Campus Food Bank. Every person that brings a donation will receive an extra raffle ticket.

  5. Hey Mat(t)s! Any update on this thingamajig?
  6. Thanks for the information, gentlemen. It is extremely helpful. I think this info mostly answers my question, as it was more about importing legal equipment into the country rather than using it. It sounds like it's not really much of an issue regardless of block.
  7. Does Italy have a "legal" range of operating frequencies for mobile wireless users like us? I can't seem to find anything outside of some user experiences and the Radio Astronomy range.
  8. I could, but then I'd have to kill you :-) Probably all I can say is it shoots around water.
  9. I also have some international stuff coming up and wanted to see if anyone here could help with a few of the countries below. My main concern is being able to bring this wireless gear into these countries legally. I'd hate to bring it knowing it will probably work in our remote locations, only for it to be turned away because of local regulations I'm unfamiliar with. Several of the other places are already listed. Thanks for the hard work, Olle (and friends)! Iceland Italy Croatia Malta New Guinea Honduras British Virgin Islands Vietnam

  11. That's great. Reminds me of a beer tote I made for my bro-in-law for Christmas a couple years ago. That'd be perfect for the local gigs.
  12. I recently made an updated version (attached here) that shows the wideband blocks from Lectro and Zaxcom as well. Freq Sheet.pdf
  13. Happy anniversary to the STS-1! I also found out in an infograph about NASA's SRB, also known as a Solid Rocket Booster. Always fun to see how different people can see different words and acronyms. Is that your inspiration, Lectro?
  14. I've had two just redone as well from John. Got them back last week and...so far so good. Good readings and very cleanly performed.
  15. We have a lot of SRb units and they don't always ALL make it back to the mothership unless they have to. They always update the firmware when it goes back, but most of ours are still living on 1.2 or 1.3 and they've obviously changed a few things since then. We ended up getting a LectroLink adapter to do the updates ourselves and wanted to share our experience. Lectro has a couple guides, but you have to e-mail them and ask for them, as of 2.26.15 anyways. Anywho, see the link below if you're interested. http://blog.texassoundguy.com/2015/02/diy-lectrosonics-srb-firmware-update.html
  16. Thanks guys. I'll be finalizing this over the next couple of weeks, along with a few other additions. Feel free to chime in as you please. I'll be following this thread any other suggestions pertaining to the widget function.
  17. I'd say they hold up fairly well. Much better than they should for $12. We have about 20 of them and have had 5 or 6 break over the past 2 years or so. Unsurprisingly, the same producer has broken 3 pairs. I love the compactness.
  18. In addition to working on an Android version of TV Timecard, I'm also adding a widget function in iOS. If you aren't familiar with widgets in iOS, they are basically extensions of an app that allow common tasks in just one or two steps rather than going to the home screen, opening the app, navigating to the function, etc. Rather than publishing what I think everyone would want, let me first show you what I'm thinking. I'm taking suggestions and notes, so wish away! Here's a graphic mock-up below. Thoughts? Demo available here.
  19. Had a good time chatting with you, George. Thx for taking the time! Good luck!!
  20. I did contemplate a Grace option, but decided against it. If Grace is called for me, I was always instructed to fill out the intended lunch in/out since there is no column or anything for that. But the MP option is manual so it's easy to enable or disable. Although you can't add multiple MPs, just one for lunch and one for dinner. Maybe the "Notes" area would be a good place for some of this info. I'll work on adding an override option for the times, though.
  21. Copy that. So it sounds like if I added an option in the general settings to use 30min (or whichever chosen duration) as the off the clock lunch time, no matter what time is actually entered, that would provide the accurate in/out time and also provide the accurate "total hours" right? It would override the default settings when activated.
  22. Hey Josh, sorry for the late response. I will say there was an update a few weeks ago, so make sure you've updated to the latest version. It will include meal penalties, NDD and custom lunch durations. However, it seems like the way you guys log your lunch times is fairly unique. Generally speaking, you would log your 30-minutes of lunch, either starting on time (at 6hrs. for example) or from the backend of your lunch out (sounds like a MP). Writing your times and then annotating with the correct time and calculating based on your notes is a factor I haven't considered because this is the first I've heard of it. Where are you located? I'm curious if this is unique to your location.
  23. That has been suggested and is in the cards. Honestly, I'm hung up on the best way to execute it. I have a few ideas. What will always remain as the primary focus is keeping it clean, uncluttered and easy to use. So long as I can maintain those ideals, I'm all for it.
