    Please help me RTFM

    Greetings -

    I'm thinking about replacing a TCXD300 with a used TCXD455 that I found.

    I cannot find where the manual for this beast can be downloaded so I can see if it's an improvement over what I have.

    I've tried searching Newtek for 'documentation' or 'manual' or 'pdf' gives many hits - waaay too many, or zero hits, depending on whether I'm smiling or frowning when making the query. Obviously I am doing something wrong.

    Any hints as to where downloadable documentation lives?

    Thanks in advance,

    Click the large blue "Can't find your TriCaster model?" button on the Support and Downloads page. The 459 docs are linked in the page it opens.

    Thanks Steve but that's where I got to a dead end.

    The 455 list has two software updates in downloadable form but I could not find a user or instruction manual anywhere near there. (See screenshot attached)

    What am I missing?

    Thanks in advance

    Oh, sorry - for\some reason I was thinking 450, not 455. You're right, it seems to be awol. I might be able to find one next week, but you wouldn't go to far wrong for now looking at the 450 Extreme manual.

    Excellent, Thanks Jeff -

    Although the deal on the 455 I found has evaporated the manual will be very useful as my hunt continues.
