    Hi folks. I was using QuickShow and a KVANT ClubMax 1800 for a while. But there were some concepts I don't think I ever really got the hang of. Now I have a KVANT ClubMax 3000 with FB4 and have upgraded to Beyond Essentials. So I have decided it's time to make sure I understand some concepts.

    1) I have read a number of articles about scan speed. I understand how the test pattern in Beyond works. But I have also read that using that test pattern and setting your scan rate that way may not be the most accurate. So, bottom line, I would like to know how to properly set the various scan rate parameters in Beyond (default, minimum, maximum).

    2) I have found that in many cues that have dots, the dots have tails. I have determined that I can eliminate those tails by reducing (by a lot) the number of blanking lines specified for each cue. But I am concerned that I am missing a concept/problem in the settings that is causing this to be needed and I want to find out if what I am doing makes sense.

    I think that's enough to let you know what I am trying to learn more about. I have scoured the internet for specific tutorials to teach me these things but I haven't found any the really hit these questions directly and thoroughly. I found one really long webinar on YouTube that looked like it would be good but I could not understand the accent of the speaker in the webinar (was really disappointed about that).

    So any help would be greatly appreciated. My goals are to get the very most out of Beyond and my laser and also to keep the system safe from burning up due to my ignorance :-(.
