  1. Hi, 1. We had a PDR battery die in field. On the card is a "RECOVER" file. When putting it back into the PDR and doing the recovery process I get "Error during recovery" Any ideas or are we out of luck? 2. I can't seem to format a new microSD card, when ever I go to format it says "MUST STOP PLAYING FIRST", I don't see any option to stop playing. Keep in mind this is a new card with no files on it. 3. Upon inserting a new card I get "ERROR# B002"
  2. I am using it primarily for video stuff and not audio, so card readers, hard drives, etc...most stuff is 3A-6A. Considering that, do I need https://www.trewaudio.com/product/remote-audio-pshot/ or can I go with https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1077442-REG/indipro_tools_ip4pps_12v_power_supply_with.html
  3. I'm interested in the Hot Box to power some DC devices. I was told to get this power supply. https://www.trewaudio.com/product/remote-audio-pshot/ At 200 for just the power supply, it's a bit pricey are there reliable alternative options that you guys are using successfully with the Hot Box? Or are you sticking with the one above?
  4. Ambient Lockit Box is what is being used but it is not on the camera the entire time. From my understanding they'll jam it, then remove it, then jam it later in the day, and so forth. So who is correct Dalton or Run and Gun? My first instinct was that it wouldn't work due to the offspeed but Dalton says it is possible. Thanks again you guys, very informative.
  5. Hi Dalton, I'll try to find out, I'm in post and not on set. But are you saying one should be able to sync cameras with TC, even though they are off speed?
  6. We are working with a RED Monstro and a BlackMagic PCC, timecode is being jammed to both,. This is not to sync audio but to sync the two cameras together. Both have project/base frame rate of 23.976, and our shooting rate is 29.976, to give a slight gliding/slow mo feel. When sycning both via timecode in Resolve, the cams have been off everyday so far, sometimes by 6 frames, sometimes 2 seconds and it drifts throughout the day. I was wondering if we're doing there's anyway to get TC spot on for both or if it's impossible because of the off speed shooting rate, and therefore it will always be off regardless that both cams have the exact same settings: 23.976 project/base, 29.97 shooting rate Thanks
  7. Hello, Working with media from some PDRs, inside the folder is the WAV file but also a number of other files named PDRSPACE. For offloading the media are these PDRSPACE files needed in addition to WAV file or are they just place holders (they take up 30 gigs of space)?

  9. Hello, I need to export a Pro Res quicktime with 5.1 and 2.0 mixes from Premiere. More precisely 8 channels of audio, the first 6 being the 5.1 mix, and the last 2 being the LT/RT. Premiere has a few different options to do this and I'm trying to figure out which is correct: Option 1 - settings In the image above, one can select either "mono" or "discrete" for the channel layout, which one should I select? A quick export with both settings and a get info on each quicktime file shows the following Mono Selected Discrete selected Option 2 - settings Exact same settings/layout as option 1, just the Audio Channel Configuration is different (see full configuration in 2nd pic). Get info on Quicktime export shows Option 3 - settings Following a reTooled.net tutorial, they set it up like this, the difference being that the 7th track would be a standard track for the Stereo file and not mono and therefore would not be panned to the left or right. When bringing these QuickTime exports into a Premiere timeline, all 3 options, show 8 channels in the correct order. However, is one of these options the correct/industry standard way for this 8 channels of audio, the first 6 being the 5.1 mix, and the last 2 being the LT/RT? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  10. Hello, I was wondering if any post audio pros could answer this. We re-edited a finished film from years back. For the re-edit we used the 5.1 stems: The 5.1 dialogue tracks The 5.1 background tracks The 5.1 FX tracks The 5.1 Music tracks So all 24 tracks were carried throughout the edit. Now my question is what is the procedure to create new master Stereo and 5.1 files? For the Stereo file is it as simple as Pan all L and Ls channels to the left Pan all R and Rs channels to the right Leave C channels as is and discard LFE then export? For 5.1 would you just mute all tracks except the Center channel for each stem, and export, then repeat that for L,R,Ls,Rs, LFE?
  11. Does one need a timecode slate in order to sync footage or can one just have a lock it box to feed timecode to camera? For example if you're using a lock it box can one use a dumb slate and still sync via timecode?
  12. What are some other poly merger applications?

    Wave Agent

    I'm trying to add 1 mono file to a 8 track poly file, when I bring them into wave agent and press combine it says the process is complete but nothing happens. Can someone let me know the proper procedure to accomplish this? I should add this lone mono file is from a separate recorder, that's started a little later than the first recorder, so is it even possible to combine it in Wave Agent? Do I have to take it into a NLE or DAW, sync them, then export a 9 track poly? Thanks
  14. Can this device record and deliver Polyphonic Wav files?
  15. Thanks everyone, we got it to work! We're just offloading to a FW400 drive, the offloading from the internal HD to the external is still kind of slow but I'll take that over a DVD. The mixer was very grateful, he thought his FW port was NG and so he had not used it since 2009. If it wasn't for my persistence and the help of this forum, he would have been turning DVDs for the rest of his career.
  16. Thanks a lot Mirror for the step by step. We don't have a CF card, but we tried connecting an external drive to the firewire port. On the Ceva screen it says Internal HD "Ready" Mirror Drive "Mounting Drive..." and just stays there.
  17. Thanks Phillip, we're going to try a few different things, will report back the results on Monday.
  18. I appreciate the insight offered but I've never touched a sound recorder before, let alone one as old as this one, so I'm trying to get specific instructions (e.g Step 1,2 and 3) especially if it's something like installing a FW400 card reader, where one would have to open up the recorder.
  19. I didn't do the hiring, just trying to find a solution to the hand I've been dealt. I'm shocked that this has not been an issue for this mixer before, I mean a DVD, what is this 2005?
  20. So with a Firewire CF reader he could record to CF cards (assuming the firewire port is good)?
  21. OK, so the mixer actually thinks his USB works but he says that the USB on his recorder might be only for plugging in external audio devices like a keyboard, can anyone confirm if the USB on the DEVA V can be used for transferring the files to a USB drive?
  22. So is the process: 1. Select mirror mode 2. Select the folder you will record to at the beginning of the day, for example tomorrow 171606. 3. Select the drive you want to mirror that folder to. Now, anything you record throughout the day will also record to the DVD as you go? dfisk, maybe you could confirm the steps to execute this process? Thank you.
  23. Does Mirror Drive or Mirror Mode = "burn as you go"? The process from the manual (how to burn as you go) is not really clear to me.
  24. Hey guys, Thanks for the suggestions, either of those options would be much better than what we have going now. Obviously it's not my device but I'll have a talk with the mixer and see if we can do and what he feels comfortable with. That "burn as you go" option is that "Mirror Drive"? From the manual Mirror Drive # The Mirror Drive # button provides the options for mirroring the data off the internal drive onto other media through the FireWire port or the optional Internal DVD-RAM drive.
