I have three PCM-800s and one is an old software version 1.10. Does this have any effect when running the machine as a slave with the others? It looks like the ballistics/reference of the meters is different. I played back a tape that I had recorded on the other machines and the -20dbfs reference played back at -16dbfs. Not a big deal but if I can still get 2.20 software I would like to upgrade it. This is a recent ebay purchase and although the unit looks brand new inside and out and only indicates 24 head hours, it may have a servo problem. It seems to have difficulty in F.FWD but it rewinds, plays, and records just fine.
