I was on a shoot last week. I was attempting to use my AV500 to record video assist, and ran into problems.

I'll explain my setup.

BNC from the tap to the RCA to minijack pigtail cable (on the yellow RCA)
minijack pigtail to the AV in on the AV500 Dock
Dock was plugged into the wall
Dock was plugged into the av500

I'd go to record, and it said no video signal detected.

Now, I tested this at home the night before, and all was well.

Any ideas to what I was missing?

Was it a black and white tap? They get mad if you don't set it the proper input type. The auto setting does not always pick the right type.
