Hey Gary (and others with the BVB07) -

I recently had a cable made to power my BVB07 from my CineLive's "Monitor Power" 8 pin Lemo port, and while it powers the monitor fine, I notice that my tally light is now on. This is without any tally light signal being sent (i.e. using a film camera) and I'm wondering if the cable is wired wrong or if that's somehow normal.

Any help appreciated.

Cheers,
- Deke

Deke, it is a bug in the monitor. Boland is aware of it, and they were working on a fix last I checked. Hopefully Gary will chime in.

I have the same issue with the one I use.
I put black paper tape over it since I don't need it.

HI everyone,

 

Happy holidays to all of you....

 

And...some good news.  The fix for the tally issue has been resolved.  Anyone that has an issue with the tally via 8pin Lemo, please, whenever it's most convenient for you, feel free to give me a shout offline and I will personally set up the service / upgrade for your model.  (gary@bolandcom.com or 1-800-918-9090).

 

Thank you...!

I had a BVB07 to test end of last summer, and frankly it saved the day!

 

Simply could not have seen my usual monitor in the direct, midday sunlight, even with it's hood, so it was just great luck I had it for that particular shoot. We were so impressed we made a quick video about the monitor:

 

 

 

Happy flying everyone!

Hi everyone,

 

A few weeks back I noticed some postings on / for rain covers. And....had someone recommend a company today that makes them.  They are out of SoCal. I called and spoke with Susan...seemed cool.

 

 

Here's her contact info in case anyone needs it:

Hi gang,

 

Just wanted to let you know that image flip is now (finally) on the new BVB07's. Same awesome Daylight Viewable non-glare panel.

 

Special pricing for NAB 2018. Questions? Please let me know any time...

 

Many thanks...

Hi Mike,
 
To be honest it would have absolutely been free (just like all of our other updates...even those that have to be modded in-house).....but the older units can't be upgraded for this (at all). I guess we had to actually change the hardware, and even the casing was modified (very slightly) as a result.
 
Some original BVB07 owners are getting new replacements. If it's at all helpful (??)....I am offering a monster discount to all Original owners. Just contact me offline and I'm happy to share what the savings is...
 
And....again....my sincerest apologies for not being able to upgrade them. I have pushed our eng team for this for a few years. I really wish we had a way to do it....

Hi Gary,

 

How could I know if I have the new BVB07 or the old model?
