I have some technical questions for those experimented operators that had to live with Seitz and WRC-4 remotes. I belive it is possible to use a CP amplifier with a Seitz receiver. My questions are: How can we plug them together ? The pins of the serial connector on CP and Seitz are the same ? On Seitz the power goes from reciever to amplifier through the 4 pin signal cable, is it the same on CP ? What do I need to know to use a CP amp on Seitz reciever ? I join 2 pictures of the CP because I don?t know how many models were on the market.

Thanks a lot. I trying to held someone on that issue.

It's more complicated than just the cabling. There is a chip inside the amplifier that has to be changed because the pulse width timing was different on the two systems. Unfortunately, it is not a chip you can just buy because it also has to be programmed. When Tiffen took over CPC, all the files that had the programming information were dumped because the WRC-4 was not a product Tiffen wanted to support. So even if you wired it correctly, it still wouldn't work.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings.
