I believe you need a pair of these...

Then you just need an ordinary pair of phono hifi leads used with every modern stereo system.

Once you have all this use the jacks at the back of the Elmo rather than those next to the power input as they sound better. Also gives you control of treble and bass as the jacks on the back come off the internal amp.

They're the ones.

Next lesson will be re-recording your feature length prints and sync' pulse.

They are still available from a Guy in Germany who builds them privately.
Also try Wittners in Germany as they also sell their own version but at a higher price. I'll try and locate the email address of the other guy for you.

As for using's a doddle [Cool]

Kevin, get Andrew Pedro's email address. With Pedro's little box of tricks Andrew you'll be amazed how simple sync' pulse is. Connect the box to the ESS port, flick the ESS switch to ESS and press PLAY. All you then need to do is have the video source and the Super 8 running in sync'.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Pedro's web site .

Units are built on order, so you have to wait for a while before actually receiving it.

It took about 15 seconds to learn how to use it from Kev at a passed BFCC.

From what Ugo told me a while ago, Pedro was working on a new, more reliable version that needed an external power source (as opposed to the current - pun intended - one that runs on the projector's power).

And the NTSC version seems to be available now...

If Pedro's cracked the problem of synchronizing to NTSC he deserves a medal.

Sorry Kevin, I just re-read my post above Jean-Marc's and it sounded a bit rude - like I was demanding you gave out Pedro's email address. What I should have said was I've lost Pedro's email address so Kevin if you have it would you mind passing it on. Sorry about that. And thanks, Jean-Marc for posting Pedro's web site.
