Thanks John, I have got the Rev C version and it has 1 gig of Ram in it at the mo and the basic 160gb Hard Disk. I am using a Sony Vaio laptop (1gig ram, core duo 1.66) to use the remote control, as opposed to using a seperate monitor and mouse. Just a thing I have noticed as well, I have been transferring files across from my laptop to the receptor and it is taking absolutely ages. To put it in context, it takes around an hour to transfer around 2gig which seems really excessive to me. Should it really take that long using a crossover connection?? I though the whole idea was that the file transfer speed would be quick??
The guy who I have been speaking to is the main distributor of Receptor in the UK called Grizzly Media, he has been down to my house to help me out and stuff and he has distributed around 50 receptors to people in the UK over the past 12 months and alot of these are famous recording artists in the UK.
With respect to research, trust me, I have done tonnes and tonnes of research on this but its until you get down to the nitty gritty where particular things crop up. I have been on alot of forums, and in fairness you have answered a lot of my queries and without your knowledge and knowledge of others, it would have been even more difficult to access this type of gear/setup. My friend also thought I was getting some duff info from what I was telling him and its diffidult for me as this is a new world which I am slowly getting used to.
Don't get me wrong, BFD works great and for live performance its amazing, all I wanted clarity on was the whole uniwire set up and the fact that I would probably have to buy a firewire mixer (I was thinking of an Alesis Multimix
to use in conjunction with my laptop to record. But based on what you have said below, uniwire should in theory run ok or worst case, just record the audio live and miss uniwire out of the loop.
