  1. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    Jason, you are right. Thank you for describing it to JonG!
  2. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    Hello Jim, you can enjoy this information on every RX in the network or TX, of course. On TCX-2 when pushing up button. On SBOX-2RF when pushing left button. It is written in the manual. Thank you for using of our products! Kind regards, Jan Hello JonG, from our point of view and experiences of many and many customers: 1) No, it really shouldn't make any interference with othe devices in your bag. 2) Battery life of TCX-2 is really good. On NiMH about 30 hours, Alkaline about 25 hours. So battery eliminator is not necessary. Thank you a lot. Jan
  3. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    Hello guys, ID numbers of RXs is there for easy identification of receiver. If you have more pieces, you know well, which one is out of range, which one has dead battery etc. There are 5 channels, which can prevent problem with other systems on one place. If you know, that your system can be disturbed with other one, you can use TCX-2 as a stand alone units without RF. But to be honest, I think you won't be disturbed by other BETSO systems at one place. We have never heard about this issue.. Thank you for using BETSO! Kind regards, Jan Zastera BETSO ELECTRONICS
  4. BETSO synxbox blinking issues

    Thank you, Derek. You are right. Some manufacturers of NiMH cells don't respect AA cell dimensions standards, but it is not problem of all NiMH. We also upgraded battery door of SBOX-1N and it should be really minor problem, but it is good to check it if you buy a new cells.
  5. BETSO synxbox blinking issues

    Hello Blas, it is solved for SBOX-1Ns shipped from now. Thank you very much for this information - you are the first, who gave us this information. It is most probably because almost all users use alkaline batteries. They are much cheaper and because of really small current consumption of SBOX-1N, they can power it for 2 days with no problem. Using lithium batteries is not necessity. Unfortunately there is no easy way how to fix battery monitoring of lithium AA celss on already sold SBOX-1Ns.. Sorry. Have a nice time and sorry for delayed answer. Kind regards, Jan

  7. Tentacle sync review and comparison

    Hi Rado, if you are interested, please contact one of our distributor in the USA (f.e. Gotham or Trewaudio) and they would be happy to lend you SBOX-1N for testing. Or I can contact them and ask them to contact you and lend you SBOX-1N. It is up to you. :-) By the way, thank you for very nice comparison, we would be proud to have SBOX-1N involved! Kind regards, Jan Zastera BETSO
  8. Betso Sharkie active antenna

    I know. You are right. Company which made this mistake will be punished. Sharkie bandwith is 470-850 MHz. There is a significant signal attenuation outside this range because of internal RF filters, which are great for avoid mobile/wifi/walkie-talkie interferences.. Graphs and measurements will be on our new pages. Manual will be ready soon. We are working on that. Thank you for interest!
  9. Betso Sharkie active antenna

    Hello guys, European pricing is not right. pindrop accidently found our testing area for new BETSO web pages. There are only testing data there. It should be hidden for customers. Sorry for that. Pricing will be the same in Europe as well in the USA! Price in EU is 479 EUR/pc tax excluded. Price in the USA 579 USD/pc. Worldwide Free delivery when ordering online at BETSO STORE. Ask you local distributor for demo of SHARKIE. Our new web should be launched in 2 weeks. Best regards, Jan Zastera BETSO ELECTRONICS s.r.o.

  11. New TC-box from Betso

    Hi guys, problems you mentioned was in the past. Some units from the first series of SBOX-1 had this issue with powering. Even manufacturer of power chip (Texas Instruments) didn't know, where is problem and why their chip failed. We have made new design with different chip of different well known US manufacturer and this is the reason, why SBOX-1N don't have this problem anymore. SBOX-1N is really reliable. We are still doing our best to manufacture and design high quality products. We use high quality components from well known manufacturers, unfortunately also this high quality components can broken some day. But I am glad, it is really really minority problem of SBOX-1Ns. Hundreds of satisfied customers are prove of that. Thank you all for your support and confidence. Merry Christmas and happy new year! Jan Zastera BETSO ELECTRONICS
  12. Review: Betso SBOX-1N

    You are right, we received it 2 days ago. It is already repaired. Battery door was jammed, most probably because of some dust. We are not sure. It is repaired and ready to send back. Really sorry for this issue. We are sending you free nylon pouch as a small gift.

    Thank you for welcoming me here, José and Vin! :-)
  14. Review: Betso SBOX-1N

    Hi Adam, are you sure, it was SBOX-1N? (N letter in the name of product is important, it means NEW version) Because we did not receive any SBOX-1N from Trew Audio with jammed door and not working completely.. What you wrote was issue of some SBOX-1 (old versions) units in the past. Please, let me know. Hi Roberto, you are right. We know about one unit SBOX-1N which behaved weard. You returned it to Pascal (Noyz Boyz service guy) and he wrote us, he cannot simulate issue, you described. We gave you (to Noyz Boyz) completely new unit and this one, we also tested and cannot simulate this issue too. So I gave this SBOX-1N to my friend - sound guy from Prague and he is working with it now for almost 6 months and it works perfectly fine, so I am not sure, what was wrong.. Anyway sorry for troubles you had with it.. Jan Zastera BETSO ELECTRONICS
