Ok, something is up here. From what I've read, the AR8000 will not work without the satellite plugged in. Therefore, will not work standalone with the Movi. The suggestion that I can plug the Movi to the AR8000 via the satellite plug renders the AR8000 useless! I've not heard back from Robert Redd (above) yet but I simply cannot understand how he got his receiver to work without the satellite? I'm going to try an AR9020 next. It has two satellite ports and hopefully it will bind and function with only one satellite connected, leaving that port to connect to the Movi. Any thought's on this or any further information on how the AR8000 can possibly work without the satellite plugged in? All this to trigger a shutter!
