I can't seem to get this thing to sync correctly with my system. The image scrolls horizontally no matter what position the external sync switch is in.


The LZX doesn't like to sync to a source that's far out from the NTSC sync frequency standards. It has a fairly wide range -- any camera or DVD player I've dried is fine -- the only device I have that it doesn't like is a cheapo scan converter I picked up for $30 once. I'm suspecting it's the same problem in this case. You'll need to run the media player thru a video mixer with a TBC or a TBC of some kind, to lock the LZX to it directly it sounds like.

Frustrating, I know!

FWIW, I have a Sony network'ed media player box I paid about $80 for, that plays Netflix via wi-fi and will also play tons of video file formats off of a USB drive port. That works fine as a sync source, and has Composite, Component and HDMI outputs. I think it runs a similar software interface to the PS3.

just found this, it looks way easier to deal with.

In the meantime I am going to pick up some AV cables for iphone as I have an old iPhone as well as an iPad. I think that the iOS player "with its built-in preview monitor" might be a good way to go for playing pre-recorded clips

That looks very promising.

As an additional input, I keep a bunch of videos on my phone and pack an A/V cable for it... Will buy an ipod touch for this purpose soon enough, less liability!
After my ipod nano ended up in a drink (hah, whoops!) it's time to buy a Touch.
Pretty well convinced they're a great solution and I'd rather pay more for something reliable and versatile than suffer with compromised discount players.

edit: half hour after writing this, my girlfriend just messaged me to say I can use her old iphone for video work. total coincidence love

How would I connect my ipad to the lzx system? Is there a dock connector that outputs to composite video? Or would I need something like this, with an addition vga-> composite converter?

EDIT:

Just found this: Dock connector to composite

Yep that's what you need. Nick Ciontea here also has some sort of Alesis I/O dock with a video output.

I use these all the time with a bunch of older IOS devices. they work great. I also got some cheaper versions from amazon that work, although when I plug them into my iphones a message saying they won't work comes up. maybe they don't charge or something, I can't remember. I only wish that the IOS device would play the video on its screen while sending video to the composite output. that would be the ultimate in portable video playback for me, as I use 3 iphones to play back clips i made with the LZX into my modified panasonic mx-10 mixer (one through an external TBC)

edit: i can only find 2 of my 3 apple cables so I tried one of the cheap knocksoff I have, and it works fine. I did have to plug in and rotate the iphone to portrait mode and then re-plug but it started to send video once I did that, and it is charging.

Sorry in advance for the extremely noobish question -

Can I use this to connect the s-video out on the CVE to a component input?
