Re: Incoming call Badge nuisance kevs 11/28/21 01:09 AM
DK Marsh, it's holding up so think you have solved the nasty banner issue, thanks! (hopefully)...

2 more, 2 final nuisances, can you solve?:

The green one on right still comes up quite a bit, it's iphone saying redundantly, do you want to call with iphone?, total nuisance.

And one left if iphone asking to choose between several choices. another total nuisance.. one on left has not bothered with for awhile but it will come back with force....

No Antivirus software. I did download and run EtreCheck and it showed show much a couple of unsigned files that have been there are years and a couple of Launch Agents from long ago apps and I deleted those.

Do you have any antivirus software? A long time ago (and it may have been in Jaguar), I found that Norton Antivirus was causing kernel panics. Recently, I uninstalled AVG antivirus because of issues (not KPs, but unexpected crashes). Sometimes, AV software IS a virus.

Message Effects plantsower 11/27/21 11:17 PM
I am trying to send a short home video to someone and I keep getting the "message effects" pop up like "gentle, loud" etc. I checked and that option is turned off. I picked one just to see what would happen, and I still couldn't send it. I turned Messages off and on and rebooted my phone, but I am still getting the effects option which I do not want and there the video sits. How do I get out of it?

OK, unplugged the printer USB cable and see if that does anything.

Jon cited Thunderbolt only as an example. Any peripheral hooked up to any port could create an issue.

Your printer having been hooked up for well over a year is meaningless, because, as V1 used to say (more or less): "Everything works right up until the moment it stops working."

Unplugging your printer may do no more than eliminate a possibility, but it also maaay identify your problem.

I have NO thunderbolt devices on my computer. The only device I have is my Canon printer hooked via USB and I've had that for well over a year now.

I had the same problem (I don't remember which OS) and disconnecting my Thunderbolt device stopped the kernel panics.

I can't be any more specific other than it is I/O related and perhaps to a Thunderbolt device. I have two suggestions…
  1. Run Etrecheck Pro and see what, if anything, it turns up.
  2. As this has only occurred since the last update, I would try reinstalling 10.15.7.

I like to record Wally Whyton's Country Music Hour (now Bob Harris) from the BBC. Chop out the tracks that I like and create hi-res mp3 files for the car. If the announcer talks over the end of the track, you can chop it at the voiceover, then create a gradual fade out for, say, five seconds. I find Amadeus really useful. I think if you want to edit tracks in Audio Hijack, you have to buy their Fission app.
I went for the AHP/Fission package because AHP has got the wonderful feature that allows recording from multiple sources at the same time. I can record a stream on Safari, another on Firefox, a piece from Amazon music, the conversation in my room, et al, all at once.

I'm with you on country music for driving! smile

I'm using Catalina 10.15.7 on a Mac Mini. Since the last security update I've been experiencing random freezes and restarts. The error report is below. Anyone have any ideas what is causing this?

The stylus is either sapphire or diamond, neither of which is susceptible to deterioration, but, as you've said, the guts of the cartridge itself are a-whole-nother matter.

Re: Transferring analog audio to iMac artie505 11/26/21 11:28 AM
I got a ton of use out of my iMic. It was a great product.

I started out with Griffin's proprietary Final Vinyl software, but was much happier after I switched to the Audio Hijack (Pro, at the time)/Fission combo. I looked at Amadeus, but it seemed like it would have been redundant.

Griffin iMic

I bought a Griffin iMic in 2009. It was an excellent product. I used it to transfer 300 90-minutes audio tape cassettes to mp3 files. I loaned it to my brother-in-law and never saw it again.

I have no more audio tapes to convert, not even a cassette player to play them on, so no need any more. Still, I'd like to know what he did with it...

Side bar: two audio software products I can recommend: Audio Hijack and Amadeus Pro

That got me thinking... I suspect that you may need some sort of preamp functionality to go from RCA to TRS, so you may need to cable up to your preamp or, as the case may be, stereo rather than directly to your turntable. (That's how the iMic worked, anyhow.)
I just looked again and realized that the UCA 202 has got RCA ports, so now I'm not sure what's up. I guess I read your response backwards.

The Griffin had 1/8" ports.

This was one of the most exhausting Google searches I've ever embarked on. Google has, indeed, got all the answers, but ONLY if you ask it the precise right questions.

Thanks for the beer offer, but if I visit my daughter in Tacoma - much closer to Okanagan Valley than Brooklyn - to split the distance difference we'll be stuck meeting in Idaho, and I wouldn't set foot in Idaho for the last beer on Earth.

Hot damn...that looks perfect. I've already put one in my cart....and I've got the adapters to go from the RCA to 1/8" TRS. Perfect. And the USB connection is icing on the cake. No, wait, more icing....it's six bucks cheaper that the Bluetooth unit that doesn't work.

I can attest to that. I never did get it to transmit to the iMac and I once got it to receive from the iMac. Other than that, a lot of trying this, trying that.....to no avail. I have since got my money back.
