Re: Remote Control Recommendcations

I put in two different Broadcast Tools units with good success. One of them in an environment where the power is somewhat dirty and it's held up nicely. It's not super slick like a Burk or Statmon, but it handled the job very nicely.

KVM Suggestions

So I am starting the process of looking to get our in house KVM replaced. The current model we have has 64 "ports" and 12 user stations but is quite old. So there are some graphics resolution issues with it, along with the other known potentials with older units. Here is what I am looking for. It ha...

Re: Ecreso vs. BW for Translator

I've installed four BW transmitters with only one issue, where the webpage stop responding. I contacted BW and had them respond within 24 hours of the fix. (Just firmware issue). Otherwise they've been rock solid. I installed one for a misreably cheap client, who refused to pay for basic things like...

Re: RF Triangulation - number of devices

Out of curiosity , why exactly do you want to know this information? You need to answer this question. What you're asking to do comes off a little shady without an explanation. Please respond. You can PM me if you wish not to say publicly. Otherwise I will close this subject to further discussion.

Re: RF Triangulation - number of devices

According to my sources, a lot of people don't have their BT or WiFi on when being outside, that's why i'm looking for an alternative like network signal :) You may want some better sources. Most people don't bother to turn off/on either. They just leave them on, and whatever connects works. Many m...

Re: Arris DSR-4460 won't authorize on unencrypted feed

Life was much easier when everything was analog, there was no boot-up (except maybe for tubes warming up), and you could troubleshoot it with a meter and scope. (Yup, said like an old fart!) Except for dealing with the video bandwidth noise, and trying to get the sparklies out of the picture. (Espe...

Re: Arris DSR-4460 won't authorize on unencrypted feed

The Tandberg RX-1290 receivers were nice receivers, except the internal upconversion and cross-conversion never worked. So you were always stuck with using outboard converters. After extensive calls with Tandberg, they admitted their hardware did the conversions in a funky route, which didn't work w...

Re: FM and windmills

Make contact with the chief engineer of Entercom in Buffalo, NY. He has a site surrounded by Wind Turbines out in the country, that is essentially a rim shot to the city.

Re: Lock (Unlisenced)

Yes, you do not have a license for the format which you are running. On the Ericcson receivers, certain video formats, such as 4:2:2 (or is it 4:2:0) you need a license to have the receiver decode the video. If you go into the webpage of the receiver, and look at the video it is trying to decode, it...

Re: ABC news audio alerts like NBC blackbox voice alerts

No problem. We run the feed through a compressor/limiter: there's an enormous variation in level, depending on who is speaking and how excited they are. Dierdre has come close to launching me through the drop ceiling on more than one occasion with her "ATTENTION STATIONS!". :lol: We DA ours into se...

Re: Monitoring, Day Sequerra Board Repair

WPRO in Providence took theirs and modified the bar-graphs to be a dimmer, easier on the eyes green color. I remember their engineer telling me how they modified the unit because the blue was too harsh.
