How is programming done with the XDR

Hello: I received my XDR yesterday. There was no documentation with the unit save the 0.0.95 release note.

Audio is not coming in from SDI or analog so I need to get into the menu to check settings.

If anyone has this unit, how do you get into the menu for programming?


Cheers,
Scott (on the bleeding edge)

Menu question

I found with a call to Convergent Design tech support that there is no menu at this time, but it's in the works. Also, although there are numbers indicating VU or Peak metering, metering does not exist yet either.

This product is still being designed and should be considered in those terms for would be buyers.

As a positive sign, the images I recorded do look good and play back. I will do more recording in the next couple days and send in my findings. Since I have no test equipment, I can only give feedback as to how it looks to my eye on a HD monitor.

Cheers,
Scott

Hi Scott-
I hope to post a firmware update next week with more of the menus enabled. We are finishing up the Quicktime testing and release this week.
