Hi guys!
I have got one of Pedro's synch units and all is well with 18fps but on 24fps the ESS needle goes crazy. He suggested that my setting for the 24fps switch may need adjusting. So I went and opened up the rear cover. I couldn't find the board!
I know on the ST180 and the GS800 It was easy to find but on this im lost. Is it possible that it wasn't included on my machine? Hmm..

Hi Alan,
That board at the bottom of your picture is the speed control board.

The Right hand pot is for 24FPS and the left 18fps.

Set your machine up as normal ie with the ESS switch in the normal position and then plug in pedros unit with the speed control set to 24fps on his unit and the projector. With the projectors speed control set to the centre position adjust the speed control pot on the board in the back until the needle is as stable as possible. Voila!!! job done.

Email me direct if your want any more info.

GS1200 Xenon with Elmo 1.0...great combo along with a 16-CL Xenon for that super bright white light.
