That is a major pain.

Definitely test if you can hear music or another audio source coming through. One other question, when you tried the XLR cable was it to 3.5mm into an adapter for lightening or was it just an XLR to Lightening cable? 

The other thing is I've got an Android phone, Apple may have their own little nuances with this stuff. 

 

Love it when Demonland momentarily becomes Gearspace.

Loved the podcast as usual, I feel myself flip flopping and siding with different panel members all the time; 

'Angry Andy' firing up about us potentially not being as good as the ladder suggests

Positive Binners reminding us that a 4 goal win against the 5th ranked team is a good result (after a 6 day break from the Alice no less) 

George giving Gussy Brayshaw a big wrap for his versatility

All great shouts

Just getting around to listening to the podders now and Binners has mentioned the return of our tempo footy. I completely agree. It was something very noticeable in the final quarter. We essentially started to play keepings off them by chipping it around half back and the wings. It was very final quarter circa 2021. Good pick up mate.

As an update for @layzie and anyone else who is interested.

You can connect an iPhone or an iPad up to the Rodecaster Pro 2 via XLR or USB-C to play audio but as a result of an intentional iOS limitation you cannot make or take calls this way.

I can set it up to send calls to your Mac or iMac and I tested this out when I went to the Gold Coast match and it worked but no one called into the Podcast that night. This is a viable alternative but ...

For any future interviews for the time being I will dust off the Rodecaster Pro 1 which uses the TRRS cable for calls and works every single time. I don't know why they didn't include that tiny connection on this device.

None of the videos that I watched on Youtube about connecting a Phone to the Rodecaster Pro 2 via Bluetooth to take calls mentioned issues with the Bluetooth connection failing so perhaps it is either an issue with my mixer or my phone. The simple fact is that no matter how many times I use the bluetooth connection successfully now I will still be scarred by what happened when I interviewed Steven May ... with Rick Lever riding shotgun no less. How embarrassing.

I couldn’t listen to this week’s Pod live, because of no remote area internet connectivity.  I listened intently yesterday, on my drive back to the ‘real world’.  Another absorbing show guys. It made the long drive home a ‘breeze’.  Thank you.

Look, you’re a far more generous defender of the players than many here, and it’s ultimately the admirable path, but there was no concession in the slightest that Kozzy could improve in some areas. Is there even the slightest grumble in there? Are you suggesting there isn’t the tiniest fire that’s created all the smoke? Even if that fire is located somewhere near the coaching staff?

Fair point MB.

It's true to say my starting point is to defend the players. But perhaps you're right and i was too dismissive of the concerns about Kozzie's form. Four possessions is a pretty poor output regardless of his role. 

I find how they're managing him quite interesting. He has struggled mid season every year so far, and to my eye look like he needs a chop out this year in the same way other young players like Chandler, JVR, Bowey and Spargo clearly did.

But unlike those players they haven't sent him back to Casey. He has played high time on ground in this period - i think it was 95% against the Giants, so perhaps playing senior footy is better for Koz in terms of getting the required load into him. 

The other thing i factor in is i don't think there is any debate that Goody's number one priority is to win the flag and that all his selection decisions are informed by that goal.

And there is little debate Goody places a huge emphasis on players carrying out instructions and playing their assigned role.

Goody is not going to select any player who is not performing their assigned role over multiple weeks, so the fact he continues to select Koz suggests to me he is ok with how he is travelling.

A very odd thing there and I can't for the life of me figure out why they would do that. I guess with TRRS being purely analogue it just passes what audio is playing off the phone through and can get around any limitations but XLR should have the same capabilities? No idea.

Good thing you still have the first one, I'd always want a wired option for best possible sound quality if nothing else.

Also there can be a number of unforeseen things that can interfere with the bluetooth and kick it off, just this morning I was listening to music on my car stereo via BT from Spotify and all of a sudden my phone went into call mode to no-one and cut all the audio. This happened at least 6 times, need to troubleshoot that one but I feel like it's another app on my phone getting involved somehow with notifications or something.

Every now and again I will take a call on Bluetooth in my car and it will for no reason switch back to the phone.

All my bluetooth issues could be my phone but it only happens occasionally when taking a call in the car or with the aforementioned connection to the podcasting mixer. It never just switches when using bluetooth earbuds which I use every day for a few hours a day.

    TRAINING: Tuesday 28th May 2024

    Veteran Demonland Trackwatcher Kev Martin returned to the training track to bring you the following observations from Gosch's Paddock this morning. Beautiful morning for training. The dew has dried, out from AAMI, quiet chatting. Maysie does his heart symbol. 7 in rehab, Turner, Hore, Sestan, BBB, Petty, Spargo and Schache. All in runners. Melky weighted and change of angles work. Salem has his individual program. White cap (no contact), Howes, Woewodin and Sparrow

    GALLANT by KC from Casey

    The world “gallant” is not one that is readily acceptable to losing teams in our game of football so when it was used in the context of the Casey Demons’ loss to Sandringham in yesterday’s match at Casey Fields, it left a bitter taste in the mouth.  The Demons went into the game against the St Kilda affiliated Zebras with the advantage of playing on their home turf (not that this has been a major asset in 2024) and with very little else going in their favour. The Saints have close to a full

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th
