So I bought one of Bartech's wired focus controllers when I bought my BFD BDR setup, and quickly realized that it doesn't work with the Digital receiver. Is there anything that replaces the wried controller with the BDR?

NOPE, that's the reason I'm still analog, The live shows require I focus myself and the BDR cannot be made to do that.
I'll get a BDR and Digital motor at some point, but I'll have to keep a BFD Analog receiver for just that purpose.

Had a brief chat with Jim Bartell at Cinegear last year and that's what he told me...but it sounded like there was some talk of adding the appropriate connection to the BDR. Maybe I misunderstood, or maybe something like that is in the works.
