  1. Oh nice. I will do that today. Thanks a lot
  2. I did not! I thought it was a plug and play operation unless routing to a computer. Better look into it more. Thanks for the response
  3. Hi folks I'm attempting to use Dante for the first time and not having any joy. Have the DSQD and 888 connected and the lights on the Dante ports are all flashing. But when I try to route Dante to the input channels on the 888 I'm getting nothing. I'm sure I'm doing something stupid. Anyone have experience connecting these two? Cheers
  4. Hi I must be being thick but I got the Panamic maintenance kit to clean my boom pole and I cannot figure out how to disassemble the different segments. I unscrew the Thimble as it says to do but after that it just says "remove from mating section". I have no idea how these come apart. Can anyone explain to me how this works? I must be being stupid..... Thanks! Oh. You pull it apart. Doh!
  5. Just wanted to come back and say that I sent these to Lectrosonics and they are now fixed. And not only did they sort the issue but they did it under warranty due to the fact that I'd already paid Ambient who didn't fix the problem. Lectro were so quick to come back whenever I emailed them and the whole process was really quick and easy. Brilliant customer service. And thanks again to Karl for the help here too. Cheers
  6. Thanks Karl I will get in touch. I'm just going to do some more tests with a colleague and see if we can figure out a bit more. I've spent a bit already only to receive them back with exactly the same issue so I want to rule out anything on my end that might be causing it. Cheers
  7. Yes purchased used over a year ago. Didn't notice this issue when I first used them, not sure when it started. Yes I'm in Europe. I have the Compat set to HBR. Other options on the receiver are m.3/300/110/m.6/IFB/HRB TB. Not sure what you mean when you say test each receiver separately as it's just the one dual receiver? Its currently powered by a single L mount battery in a Hawkwoods adapter. Thanks for taking the time to respond. Cheers
  8. Hi Karl No absolutely, all good questions. So I am choosing frequencies just with the scan function on the SRb. Rescanning and changing Freqs has so far made no difference to this. It has happened in all sorts of different places and scenarios so I don't think it could be connected to interference from outside (could be wrong). In the example I posted I switched to Sennheiser G3s (also on 606) and it sounded clean as a whistle in comparison. Now gain setting is something that I thought might be the problem and have experimented with it quite a bit. I generally set the tx as it recommends in the manual (-20 & -10 flashing green, -20 occasionally flashing red) and then the Rx to give a healthy signal into the 633. Bumping the gain on the tx does seem to help it a little but it is odd if to get a cleaner signal you have to push the tx to a point where a shout or something unexpected could end up clipping. I'm using DPA 4060s and 4071. Not sure how they're wired but the 4060s need a lot less gain than the 4071 (usually set around 23 on tx. 4071 needs to be higher, about 33). But never had an issue with noise with any of them previous to this. I'm pretty new to Lectro and the Smart NR so I had thought it might have something to do with it. So I tried every setting including off and it didn't solve it. Getting annoying that the G3s I've moved away from are currently sounding nicer and cleaner than the Lectros. Could powering be causing it at all? Cheers
  9. Hi there Really hoping someone might be able to shed light on an issue I'm having. I have 2 SMbs and an SRb, 606 band. I am getting this strange noise on them, almost like the type of modulating whispyLectro Problem.wav noise you get after a hissy recording is denoised. I've tried most obvious things I can think of but nothing seemed to make a difference, and the issue is virtually the same on both RX. So I sent them to Ambient to be serviced. They couldn't find anything wrong. I've just tested them out after getting them back and I'm sure I can still hear the same issue. I have uploaded a quick clip as an example. Can be worse but always seems to be there. Can anyone shed some light on what might be causing this? Thanks a lot
  10. Ok thanks a lot for the detailed response. I do need to look at powering options as I generally just rely on L Mount batts on the 633. So will keep that in mind Cheers
  11. Thanks Rich. I did see that usb on the back of the CL12 and wondered if that would do it. I'll take a look at the manuals and see. Thanks
  12. Hi folks Is it possible to still use Wingman when using a CL12 with a 633? Never used one but thinking of renting. I see the CL12 is connected through the USB so does that mean there's no way to connect the WM dongle? Thanks a lot
  13. Thanks Philip! That's pretty much what I thought
  14. Hi folks Just received a contract for a film I'm working on. There has been an agreed amount for daily equipment rental and consumables but there is no mention of this in the actual contract, only basic pay. Should it be in there? Thanks
  15. Hi Larry Haha thanks so much I will keep that in mind for future. I had a couple of online stores looking for 25 euro + cost to ship the two screws. But actually big shout out to Raycom who today just offered to send two completely free of charge, which is very kind. Cheers
