    Well, I have no one to blame but myself. :rofl

    Hey Errin - Are you aware that VIO has a firmware upgrade to take up to 8G cards now? Looks like a free download.

    Yep, just downloaded it Saturday night. I ordered some 8GB cards too, but I have yet to receive them.

    Hi RBA,

    Have you tried using the camera in loop mode? I've found that to be the better way to use it while riding. Setting it to :30sec loops, and then just "Tagging" the clip that you like. If you're at the beginning of a :30sec loop, it will keep the clip immediately before it, and if'n you're at the end, it will keep the next clip. For my money, less is more with POV type footage, and there's nothing worse than sifting through six minutes of POV footage for a 10sec shot.

    Also, both POV and ADVdesigns sell a belt clip mount for the POV now. So it's easier to look at the head unit and make sure that it's recording. I plan to carry mine on my camelbak's belt loop.

    I have tried the loop mode and I use it on occasion.

    Thanks for the tip of the pouch and belt clip, that might come in handy.

    Hey Mike, good to hear from you! I checked out your Titty Bar thread and really enjoyed it (meant to harass you on the thread but never did).

    I hope Japan is treating you well and we'll see you stateside for a ride next year.

    Dave

    sweet vid as usual, RBA:clap

    don't know if you noticed, but youtube is offering videos in 720P HD resolution now... thought you might want to save some smugmug bandwidth or at least try it out.:D

    they just activated 720p last week so you'd have to re-upload the file in a compatible HD format to enable viewing in 720p HD. right now your video says "watch in high quality" on the youtube page, but if you upload the HD file properly that will say "watch in HD" and the quality will be very good!

    i haven't actually uploaded any vid's of my own in HD yet, so i can't give you any more details, but if you search youtube for "720P" you will find quite a few videos that already have the "watch in HD" option enabled. check it out!

    All right, I've got my hdmi cable in hand, ready to plug it into the laptop & 62" TV and watch some life-size ADV-riding bad asses do their thing! :lurk

    OK, folks...Here's the HD version of video #1.

    Remember, you need to go to the link and then click on the "watch in HD" link in order to really see it. Then hit the full screen button. If anyone knows a better way let us know.

    you can force youtube to play the HD version by adding "&fmt=22" to the end of the movie link. so the direct link for your vid is:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEgA7ochROY&fmt=22


    not sure about how to embed the HD version just yet... but since you figured out how to embed the high quality version earlier something tells me you will figure it out.:wink:
