  1. MovieSlate and Sound Reports

    Movie Slate 7 still partially works with Zaxcom Nomad touch software. only Scene and Take number get updated automatically. I believe Zaxcom didn't go further with integration.
  2. Kangaroo PC

    If you are using Kangaroo and Ipad via wifi, make sure it's not on the same wifi channel as Zaxnet. It's little tricky to change windows wifi channel but you can try to change Zaxnet frequency and see if that help. Hardwire for me has almost no latency at all.
  3. TRX 742 External battery option

    I have 3 AA Cells, one 5VDC and two dummies. Just use red and black wire for pin 1&4.
  4. 2,4G Wireless on SX-R4+?

    I'm using Nomad Touch on my Ipad via wifi. It's not ideal but better than having a full size usb connector attached to a tablet in the bag. You can use a wifi hotspot app like Connectify to be able to have a peer-to-peer network. The range is enough to burry the mini-pc in the bag and walk around with an iphone or Ipad. There is a module to transcode serial to wifi signal, but it's too technical for me to figure it out. it's called ESP8266.
  5. Zaxcom RX12

    It's a Kortwich bag for Nomad. RX-12 barely fits, but it's a compact setup. I'm using a medium K-tek Sting ray now.

  7. Suggestions on Lectrosonics blocks to take to Dubai

    This is for anyone who travel to Dubai for audio work. I've lived there between 2004-2013. Currently based in New York. I owned blocks 19-25 and they were pretty much clear. ( No TV Station within that Frequency length ) Comteks are a bit an issue. i'd suggest to use Dipole or Phase right antenna. It's always a good idea to include your kit list with camera kit. Dubai Airports are usually easy to deal with when you show them a camera along with the rest of the gear.

  8. Zaxcom RX12

    Here: RX-12 is not that heavy in my opinion. I only use 1-2 Receivers when i do run and gun stuff ( not so much of it these days ). The software is really good and pretty much without any bug or issues so far, but there is plenty of room for improvement.
  9. Zaxcom RX12

    I'm also waiting for those covers. RX-12 is a great product and i'm very satisfied with it's simplicity and Range. I use it in my bag with 2-3 Receivers and more on my cart. Also i'm in touch with Kortwich at the moment to come up with a better bag tailored for RX-12 and nomad.
  10. 2.4GHz Amp for Zax IFB100 Troubleshooting

    Question: I've just received my amp , antenna and cables. My first test ended up with Red light on Tx LED. Meanwhile i've got decent range with my IFB , but not sure if the red light is good sign on my amp. Any advice from users? Devices : Zaxcom nomad - ZAXNET gain : 5 amp : l-com 2401G-100

  12. Tinnitus expriences

    interesting thoughts. by the way as i mentioned , i went to audiologist few months back and did the whole checkup. there was some audio frequency test into my ear , also some word recognition , which was hearing some word into a headphone with very low level and try to repeat them if you can hear them well. i've scored that test for 94% hearing ability which doctor said it's great. what he've offered me was these custom made ear plugs which i can use them when im in very loud level environment. i tested these but it doesn't help but also it just worsen it .. since you cant hear anything else , then that ringing is much more louder in your ears.

  15. Tinnitus expriences
