Cablecast: Almost therePosted: August 25, 2008
Dennis setting up our SX4.
Continuing with our installation. Dennis, Ted, Dave and myself were here Saturday to watch over things, but as I anticipated, most of the time was spent finishing the rack wiring from Friday, so there wasn’t anything photogenic to show you. I did busy myself with some hardware swapping Saturday morning, swapping a DVD drive into the machine we normally use for our console in cablecast.
It isn’t a real project without an emergency delivery, and we had ours Saturday. We couldn’t use our old RS-422 8-port card, necessary for deck control, with the new machine so Tightrope overnighted us a USB to serial device, the Quatech ESU2-400, an 8 port RS232/422/485 interface box.
Still waiting my turn to set things up.
