That is very interesting, thank you. I've actually been actively searching for ideas and options on this, since we are building a new Stake Center (Lindsay & McDowell area FYI, since I notice you're local) and I am trying to arrange to rough in mounting platforms for a projector and camera durin...

I follow you completely, and am intimately familiar with all of the technical details you are discussing. My questions were not out of ignorance, just curiosity. In my circles, we generally refer to a balun as any device that converts an unbalanced signal to a balanced signal for transmission over t...

New A/V forum!!!

I'm excited to see a dedicated area now for A/V stuff. When I first got turned on to this site, it was obvious that it was mainly for the computer guys, and there wasn't much place for posts about A/V issues. There are a lot of issues and challenges in this area as we try to make our building system...

Surely any kind of church-maintained text messaging program or database would be on an "opt-in" basis. So I don't think concerns about cost, or people receiving unwanted texts would be an issue.

Also, to comment on the language question that Michael posted: We only do English & Spanish in our buildings, so it's a pretty easy standard setup. The two languages are distributed on left & right audio channels, and modulated onto two TV channels, one for each language. I installed a balan...

These kind of video baluns are cool and have some advantages over standard methods. I've looked into this sort of thing as well, but it was never quite the right solution for my application, so I haven't had any first hand experience with them. I'm curious about why you needed to go this route. What...

Kind of late to the thread, but I saw this while surfing the forum and thought it was interesting... A few more things come to mind: Our stake president is famous for sending a text message to all of the youth in his address book on random Friday nights. Something to the effect of "Have fun &am...

While I have no doubt that your vintage 1984 system may not be the best, there are a lot of other things that could be contributing to poor performance. I've seen a lot of old systems like this that worked perfectly well, but had been tampered with so the levels and EQ were all messed up, causing it...

Thanks for the quick reply. For some reason, I only tried the WMV download, since that's what usually works best for me. I guess it was too late in the evening to think clearly, so I apologize for the fire drill. As you mentioned, the Quicktime file worked just fine, and it's much better quality any...

HELP! Need to find YW Meeting Recording

I mis-programmed the DVR last weekend, so the General YW Meeting didn't get recorded. Now they want to use excerpts from the meeting in a Stake YW meeting. Talk about murphy's law... So, I was hoping to find and download it from the internet. But the only place that I could find it was at beta.lds.o...
