If male plugs at each end are the connectors you need, then this might work (it wiring isn't clearly indicated, but presumably would be correct).  Ebay France link- http://www.ebay.fr/itm/Noir-blinde-stereo-3-5-mm-jack-2x-3-5-mm-a-angle-droit-Mono-jack-plomb-/321308524918?pt=FR_Image_son_Autres&hash=item4acf7b0176#ht_3177wt_1120

I prefer a right angle stereo plugs such as that into the DR2d inputs to reduce stress on the jacks.

Yes sir, 1/8>RCA and then adapters. RCA is handy and easy to patch into any adapter (1/8", 1/4", even XLR). Only issue is that it's not balanced...which isn't anything you're going to worry about with the tascam 2D.

yeah really interesting solution to have the less possible cables and connections !! thanx for this .
but in some cases I could use one of the mono input for a microphone so a female mono format would be better for me anyway .

Like I said on the U2 board, if you have a stereo mics, you should run them in stereo. At least for room mics (different if you're individually mic'ing instruments).

It's not the end of the world to run a second recorder if you need more tracks.

I see yout point but in any cases I want to keep 1 stereo input for my main cardioid mic . The other input will be use for 1 iem mono, and maybe 2 if conditions are favorable . If not, I'm just thinking about making 1 iem mono + 1 audience mono with my second pair of mics, omni . Just to plug all the channels at every show .
My goal with all those cables I'm talking about is for sure not to buy a 2nd recorder . Not only a question of money, more a question of number of things to enter in the arenas .

Suit yourself. I think you'd be better off with a stereo IEM or a second mono IEM feed.

Make sure you're only taking the input of one omni microphone, and you're not mixing both mics into one input. Could get phasing issues really easily.

Today, for the 2nd time, I notice the screen on my Tascam remains orange without text during the use.
The machine works perfectly, it records and play files.
The battery are new and full charge.
Any help?

^ This is just speculation, but did you play with the display settings? I know the menu has an option for how long to leave the display on during use, but I don't see why the display would light up orange with no data. Just an idea, really not sure what's going on there.

^^ my DR100mkii did essentially the same thing after only a couple of hours use.  Since it was new, I returned and got a new one.  No problems with any of my 4 Tascam models since.  I would contact Tascam and get it repaired.

Guy,
I do just about every time I run the deck. Probably not needed, but I like the security.

I do to run for a full fest weekend without battery changes.
Make sure the output is 5VDC (typically a USB output).  9V will fry it.

^I decided to try it today...  used a usb 5v battery and the deck started started to boot up for a split second, then lost power.
Then tried it with a tekkeon set to 4.5v and it did the same thing.
Now absolutely nothing when I try an external.
It still runs fine on AA internals..  but if I plug 5v into either the DC jack or the usb jack, it shuts off.

Any thoughts??

I'm original owner and have never tried external power until today.
Kinda bummed about it...

Polarity correct? Cable or connector problems?

DR2d can't be powered via its USB connector, only the power jack and/or internal batteries.  I always keep charged internals in the recorder as a back up when using the external battery.  Display switches from the battery icon to the wall plug icon when powered via the external battery.
