    Hi !!

    OK, I’m back @ home and just find how to change the bk_release command. It works ! yay.

    I’ve tested some features… and now, I got a new question:
    I want to format disk. For that, I need to hold REC and then press Rev play.

    But, the REC command seems to be “auto released” … so, when I tried a task with
    0 – Record
    1 – bk_play_rec
    2 – bk_release

    It doesn’t work…

    any idea ??

    I tried to record some videos, too… but it’s supposed to tell me there’s nothing connected, if I didn’t connect a proper video source to the input (of course, I set the bonsai drive as requested… for instance, CVBS if it’s a single BNC for video connection)
    but when I hit the REC command, it sends me to Menu 092, giving disk info… (that’s why I want to format the Bonsai)

    again, thanks for your time and kindness…

    I unplugged the RS-422 cable from the bonsai drive, it keeps running thru menus… I had to electrically unplug it.

    I re-plug and tried another cmd: bk_menu … it does work but it seems it’s the same: it keeps runnin… and so, I can’t send any other bk_ commands…

    I’ve noticed that every cmd got the ACK msg… but the bk_release got a timeout msg….

    Hi…

    thanks both for your time…!

    I got the keyspan USA-28X on my mac and it’s seen (finding a driver for 10.11 wasn’t easy, but it’s done)… after a moment, I get how to make it seen by V-Control (configure/channels, then ask to refresh while in serial settings)

    but I got no idea which settings I am supposed to send ??

    I’ve tried the settings
    Baudrate : 38400
    DataBits : 8
    Parity : o
    StopBits : 1

    then added the 28Xtest as channel to my Bonsai Drive_1 device, , then I selected bk_play, Run CMD then bk_release, RUN CMD… but no result at all

    What do I do wrong ?

    OK. Thanks for reply !!! (;

    I got a USB <> Mini Din 9 serial , from Keyspan , the USA-28X, and a cable MiniDin 9 > Sub-d 9 Rs422… basically, it was used to control a Beta or DVCam (or else) using RS-422 on an old ProTools 6 TDM workstation…

    I think it can do the trick…

    in fact, I got my bonsai drive without the original remote controller… and so, I can configure it properly… can I do that with V-Control ? (access the menu, format the disk, change the settings… these things I can’t do on a BVE…)
