Re: SS32 Win 7 issue

Although SS32 runs fine with Win 7, attaching the next day’s schedule seems to be a problem. A “file not found” message causes the program to stop. Any thoughts? Thanks! I deleted the second posting of this you had in the Ask The Engineers forum. No need to cross post, everyone will see it here fin...

Re: Smpte timecode to ESE timecode

Or am I dumb and the evertz can generate ESE timecode? it's a big manual I suppose I could have missed it... Nope. Valid Question. ESE TC is proprietary to them, and for the most part they only sell SMPTE equipment now. Anyways, you're going to want an ESE ES-462U, which takes ESE TC and converts i...

Re: Optimod 2200

They are very very nice sounding boxes. My college FM has one, and they sound great. Competitive and full.

Re: Very low power recommendation

You can also tell google NOT to return results from specific sites (such as ebay) by adding a hyphen and the major part of the site name (no space between them), as in: Bob, Google changed something in the last year and the "-" trick doesn't always work. It works only sometimes. I think they use an...

Re: Very low power recommendation

In any event, no matter what you use, plan on adding an external second harmonic filter. Microwave Filter makes them, there are other companies I'm sure. That was already in the plan. :) Along with about a half dozen other things... I never heard much good about the Bext Stuff, would that be a good...

Very low power recommendation

Hello brain trust... I need advice that the Google-matic machine is not helping. I am taking on a very small class D fm that is a mess, but in the process of being cleaned up. The FM is a whopping 6 watts TPO. Currently the station has a Superior Broadcast Products 200 watt transmitter, with the nee...

Would you also happen to have a link to Tandberg rx8200 firmware?
If so any chance of a pm.
Would be very grateful.
You'll need to contact Ericcson on this firmware. We don't share firmware still available from manufacturers here.

Re: Adding Genlock

Well, again, that's that cost/risk tolerance thing:) The stuff that really matters is Evertz, Grass Valley, or whatever Harris is calling themselves these days. But really, I have no complaints with the BMD OpenGear DAs and deembedders, and while the up/down/cross converters lock up occasionally, t...

Re: Adding Genlock

Am I the only one that calls AJA "ah-ja"? Every product video they always just call it A-J-A but I like the first way better lol See post above. The name actually comes from the first initials of the owner’s sons. So I read somewhere. So it is properly A J A, but he has been asked about it, too. So...

Re: Adding Genlock

Evertz makes good stuff, although they charge accordingly:) (they do NOT make OpenGear equipment) We use quite a bit of Blackmagic OpenGear DA and de-embedder equipment with success. (and at a better price) We have had a bit of trouble with more sophisticated Blackmagic stuff (format converters) bu...

Re: Sync, time code, and insanity

So reason #3 (or shall I say cable #3, why we are replacing cable).

Intergrator labeling.

Re: Sync, time code, and insanity

Your experiences with integrators is sadly similar to my own. In every case where others have built up systems for us, they have left behind serious errors in design and execution; and generally, whatever documentation they leave us is marginal, and in a form that is impossible to update. That's wh...

Re: Snow removal on 5 meter dish

I do have some covers on my network dishes and steerables. Might have to get covers for all the dishes. The issue we ran into with the snow rake is it leaves behind some stuff, then when it starts to warm up that little bit of snow turns to slush. I swear a little bit of that slush in the right spo...
