    rebooting doesn’t change the situation in this case. I’ve powered the GC and the host computer down and back up. We got the project done by importing the video as another name, writing down the in and out points of each clip and remaking them. It would be nice if we could change the comments box on the clips. I could have changed the 4 to a 9 and not had to redo anything then.

    I do my deletions from the backup utility.

    I think the real solution would be for us to send the card and driver to microsoft to get them to bless it.

    Won’t the gigabit communication card make that unnecessary?

    We purchased some JVC decks recently to do this. exporting AVI then converting to MPEG-2 (for our playback) or DVD is very time consuming on the GC. One of it’s downfalls is no direct MPEG-2 or DVD iso exporting features. Maybe in the future 🙂 For now we run firewire to DVD recorders. It looks pretty good and we use TQL 3 on Time Machine.

    Any other way to get this besides paypal?

    No offense to those who like it but I won’t touch paypal and besides that I work for a Gov’t agency so I can only do VISA or purchase order.

    There was a Trinity set made once upon a time but they are way outdated now.

    The Globecaster is the master blackburst for the whole control room. Everything else, including TM2, works fine. I can run a 30 minute clip on TM2 without a glitch.

    I have used the E20 for at least 2 years now & it works great. Eric is right about cheap disc but as long as you stick to the name brands (Memorx, Sony, Fuji, Maxell, etc.) you will be fine. Shop the deals, a stack of a 100 DVD-R can be had for under $30.00.
    I also use JVC’s BDX200 w/ IEEE directly fed from my GC. From there any dubs get burned in my tower w/ 7 drives.

    We use a similar setup with the X200 and a 7 disc duplicator tower but have one issue with the X200. We have not seen a way to remove bad tracks. Basically if someone makes a false start or needs to redo a track they’ve been stuck and even JVC tech support hacked a hairball saying they saw no way either. The dual SVHS/DVD JVC deck we use for copying tapes to DVD and reverse at least can delete tracks as well as the consumer DVD recorder we’ve had for years.

    The only other real issue with the X200 is it doesn’t give us any more for the money than we can get for half the cost with the DVD/miniDV JVC recorder for our needs. Neither can be controlled by the GC. The dual deck at least gives us two recorders for half the cost.

    We use a brand of disc called Legacy which we have few problems with on any recorder. We get printable discs for around .25/disc plus shipping of about $3-$4 per 100 from http://www.newegg.com

    any “suggested retail” price? I’m not asking necessarily an exact price but a ballpark would be nice 🙂

    I think most people send this kind of work out. It requires specialized equipment to add it to a program.

    Not sure what causes it but it’s a glitch in the graphic panel’s rendering. We got it on the main switcher panel and actually had to reinstall the applications to fix it. I’ve had the reset fixable issue before but this was the first time I had to reinstall.

    I thought I read this wrong or you typoed since I distinctly saw the RC2 on the front page announcement. You snuck in RC3 while I was reading the forums ❗ 😛

    It could also be the dealer trying to explain something they don’t understand. But I’d wait for GS to chime in. I doubt it’s an intentional flaw but likely a bug.

    Depending on the drives you may need to upgrade the cabling. Some of the newer drives don’t like the older SCSI cables. We use all U160-U320 rated cables. The twisted ones mentioned above are likely U320. It’s not a sure fix but might help.

    actually that frame would work well in a clamp…. I’d never thought of that and it’s a LOT cheaper too…..
