In case I loose my notes or I can't make a match or forget, here are the directions on how ot set the current Parma Mile Match TV system.
As of June/July 2013.
This should be readable with a smart phone



Blue Remote Box, Transmitter- connections

1.    Antennae to Transmitter-TX (Gold Unit)
a.   Use Long Cable
b.   Pass cable through hole in front side of Blue Remote box! so it does not get smushed if lid collapses.


2.   Transmitter-TX (Gold Unit) to Camera Cable
a.   Yellow to yellow
b.   White to white
c.   Pass cable through hole in front side of Blue Remote box! so it does not get smushed if lid collapses.


3.   Camera Cable to Camera
a.   Cable plugs into left side of camera under the View Finder after the View Finder is opened.


4.   Power to Camera
a.   Camera power cord plugs into inverter
b.   Pass cord through hole in front side of Blue Remote box! so it does not get smushed if lid collapses.
c.   Power cord to camera plugs into right side of camera under the ‘DC’ flap


5.   Power to Inverter
a.   Plug unique 2 pronged battery supply to unique 2 pronged inverter plug
b.   Turn inverter on, On is indicated by pressing on the ‘I’ side of the switch, off is the ‘O’


6.   Check Transmitter-TX channel
a.   Channel is indicated on top of TX(Gold box)


7.     Leave Blue Box lid up, so heat does not build up inside the box


Setting up camera

1.   Camera on Tripod
2.   Open lens cover
3.   Open View finder
4.   Zoom to preference [be sure to zoom it out enough to see some misses and still see hits on target]


Camera Details
1.   No ‘On’ button for camera, just open View finder
2.   Don’t hit record button- it is not necessary


TV End connections

1.   Power to inverter from Cigarette lighter/Power Source
2.   Inverter  to extension cord if extra length is necessary
3.   Power from Inverter to TV
4.   Power from Inverter to  Receiver-RX( Black unit located on the front of the TV stand)
5.   Turn inverter on, On is indicated by pressing on the ‘I’ side of the switch, off is the ‘O’
6.   Antennae to Receiver-RX( Black unit located on the front of the TV stand)


Antennas

1.   Must be pointed at each other, both side to side and up and down.
2.   This is the most critical point


TV

Put on proper channel !
1.   If no picture, Hit AV+ button on lowest Left side of TV remote [remote is velcrowed to back of tv, be sure to put it back]
2.   Once ‘Source List’ Blue screen pops up, select AV
3.   Hit right pointing arrow or triangle in middle/center of TV remote for ‘Enter’
4.   Receiver-RX on TV must be same channel as Transmitter-TX
5.   Use black buttons on top of Receiver-RX to change channel or buttons on front of Transmitter-TX to change channels from channel  0, 1, 2, 3 for best picture
6.   TV power on is located on lower right side of TV
7.   Occasionally there is bandwidth interference on certain channels, you may have to drive back to transmitter to change channels for the best picture.  Use cell phones to discuss which channel has best picture if necessary from TX to RX


To charge battery

1.     Unplug battery quick disconnect from inverter if not already done
2.   Plug quick disconnect from battery into charger
3.   Pass cable through hole in front side of Blue Remote box! so it does not get smushed if lid collapses.


To armor Blue Box and Camera
1.     Use two of the 24 inch by 24 inch steel challenge type plate with caps and 'H' stands.  Use the 2 foot 2x4's.
2.     Try out plate, caps, stands and 2x4's at conex to see if it all fits
3.     Place one 24x24 plate to protect Blue Box, place the other 24x24 plate to protect the camera
4.     Place the rusty side of the plate towards the shooters, don't need another white plate to shoot at! :)

It's completely legal.   The only problem is that it puts you into FR Class (Full Retard), and you might be the only one in the entire country running FR.   Of course, it would set you up for 1st Place in your class, everytime you shoot.
