Dear Paul,

Please let me know what length you need and we will build you another one.

I have quite a few already built, but they are in Colorado Springs.

Thanks Dan 20" is what I am using. Do you want me to send this one back? No hurry since I have the longer cable to use in the meantime.

Dear Paul,

If you are not in a hurry, we could send one from our Colorado Springs stock after the holidays.

Could you send me a picture of the problem cable, via a private message, at your convenience?

Sounds good Dan after the holidays. I will use the longer power cable which seems to be fine.

Email with picture coming.

Just to give you an update on some of my finding with the Flash XDR.

I thought Final Cut would not be able to deal with 100Mbp/s long GOP 422. Well I was wrong. When you import into FC set the timeline at XDCAM HD422 1080p30p (50 Mb/s) and it will handle the 100Mbp/s. Of course this is if you shot 1080p30p. Or I just let the timeline adjust for the clip when I put it onto the timeline and agree with changing the setting to match the clip. Of course I always check afterwards. But the real proof is when I export the clip QuickTime Movie. Then open the clip in QuickTime and open Window/Movie Inspector. This shows the data rate. The lowest rate I have viewed for 100Mbp/s is 92 and the highest is 105. So I have had no problems with Final Cut working with the Flash XDR at 100Mbp/s.

Not sure what the problem is with DVinfo.net site on uploading picture but once it is solved I will post some stills for people to look at in detail to see the footage.

Dear Paul,

Thank you for posting your experiences.

I assume that you are using Final Cut Pro version 6.0.4 or higher.

Hi Dan,

I am using FC 6.0.5 and QuickTime 7.5.5 on Mac OS 10.5.5. I was told by Dulce Products not to upgrade my OS system to 10.5.6 since it will not read my RAID but all other upgrades are to date.
