Jim, you've identified one of a number of variables in this case. For
ourselves at Editel, I can tell you that we have a remarkably stable RH
throughout the main tech. areas of about 50%, due to some mechanism we are
unable to explain. But as a result, we are pretty sure that there has been
no real change in RH causing our CTL problems These have been sporadic now
for a couple of months.
It will be interesting to monitor a weather correlation here in Hollywood,
and if you are correct, when the Santa Anas start up very soon, we should
be going through hell!

BTW: we do know the Santa Anas give us a lot of static charge grief in at
least one telecine, which is in a small machine room on its own.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed info on this perplexing issue, we at
least have the slight comfort that we are not alone....
