  1. Hi Iron Film, Here in Mumbai India, as of today, it's a complete lockdown with police barricades and curfew all over the city. So even rental houses are shut. we only allowed to buy groceries (very limited places from 10am-1pm) and or medicine from pharmacies. Besides that it's all a complete lockdown, if seen outside of home post 1pm , a very valid reason is needed backed by proof of reason to be out of home. But im sure filming work will not start so early so once lockdown has ceased , i might be able to get the key crew involved, to get things sorted before our crew of approx 400 is back onto the floors filming.
  2. Hey guys, Everything is in Limbo due to the Co-Vid 19 outbreak, Had to shut down all operations before i could get to the bottom of this, will update once we resume work. Thanks for all your inputs and suggestions.
  3. Hey IronFilm, 110% should be trying this out first though! i tried swapping the cables of the teradeks that were not interfering with the lectrosonics with the ones that were, but the problem was not resolved, so i narrowed it down to the teradeks being the main cause, yes they are different models so im gonna ask them to give us the ones that do not invade the lectrosonics path, hopefully if available they co-operated and said they would swap with whatever was available with the camera rental house. Await for that to happen now . Thank you so much for your help. Hey Patterson, i tried the option you suggested, behavior was less erratic but the problem was not solved , so here i am sitting as far away as possible from them teradek fro now , Especially the 4 of em that are invading block 25 and block 26, Thank you so much for trying to help me out. hey Chris, i tried what you suggested and the problem still persisted , so narrowed it down to the teradek models, have asked the camera rental house to send me the ones that are not interfering with the lectrosonics blocks. Await the day all goes smooth. it's rather strange as they operating at a much higher frequency . so its baffling why this interference is still occuring. Thank you for your help, i will update y'all ASAP when i get this under control.
  4. Thanks IronFilm, i Got some time out during lunch, got all the teradeks next to my sound cart and tried each teradek at a time 2 of them did not invade my UCR411A path, but the rest of the 4 teradecks started to freak my UCR411A as they booted up , only solution i found was to stay in a spot that all of the 4 teradeks that invaded were away from my line of sight. asked them to get a bunch of new cables as feeds for the next few days ,and have also called for some shark fins to see if it works better, as i cannot keep dodging 4 teradeks all day. strangely when i switch to G3 systems the problem is no more , also going to try n run cables from my 788t to my UCR411As till up close to talent and far away from them teradeks next
  5. Hey guys, What beats me is why the F**k the cam ops keep the teradek so close to the cams , they have 5 Frikkin antennas pointed in all directions, When i ask them to distance themselves they say, they tend to loose signal, n it simply beats me HOW with 5 Antennaes u have a weaker signal than my lectros? The battle is on since its b een just 3 days of shoot, i have 97days to go. Please help me find a solution to this problem, All of you Audio Gurus, any kinda help in any way mentioned i will try. but i have to fix this . PLEASE HELP . Another important thing i forgot to mention is that im using the whip antennae only , no shark-fins, as im rather close to talents so i get a good strong signal. but these dropouts are driving me nuts. My saving grace for these past few days have been my 3-G2500 plug-ons that i use for my boom mics - Thanks in advance Audio brothers. Hey jason, They seem like brand new antennae on all the teradeks, cables and connectors that feed the video village, is what i have not checked, i will do that right away. Thank you for your help, will report back ASAP.
  6. Hey Barry, u feel me bro, its driving me insane, i sometimes switch to G3 A band if it keeps happening, that for some reason works better than the lectros in this case. Hey Jason, The Cams are not affected in the slightest bit, It's the lectros that take the beating, hence dropout signals get fed to the cams, cos my inputs on the lectros , the phase icon on the UCR411A Start jumping up n down and seem like they are struggling to find a clean path, especially in small rooms its a torture.
  7. Hi guys, facing some unusual dropouts on lectrosonics for this particular project with 6 red cameras and 6 Teradeks. Im using a lectro UCR411A Rx and a Smqv Tx, things look fine and work beautifully, but the moment a teradek comes around, my Phase indicator starts jumping up and down on the UCR411a, and i start getting dropouts, ive tried changing frequencies after rescanning . but the only way things go back to normal again is when i distance myself from the teradek and things work just fine, but when we using 4-6 cams the teradek is all around the place and i start to go nuts to find a sweet spot. is there something to combat this or am i doing something wrong, would appreciate any help u can provide. i checked with the cam ops and they work in the 5k Mhz range , so its rather strange that block 25 and block 26 starts to go nuts when them teradeks are around, Anyone facing similar problems thanks.

  10. Hi guys, was wondering if this mic could be used for dialogues on a sennheiser g3 tx, or a lectrosonics smqv tx in noisy environments. i was looking for a cardioid lav for noisy situations. looking everywhere but found no answer regarding dialogue recording for film and broadcast purposes. Pls advise .thank you in advance https://www.countryman.com/isomax-2-all-purpose-microphone/

  12. Hey, Thanks a ton for confirming my doubts, Jason and Jim 👍 ill give one of the 4 mics a try, n see how the cable behaves over time, hoping that it gets a little flexible and dont bulge out now n then after that. Meantime i shall request my dealer to give me some time to decide if i want to exchange them for the B6's. will post an update as to how things pan out with the COS-11's Thanks again guys. Cheers.
  13. Hello everyone, Just introducing myself first, my name is Roy and i am new to this forum, this is my first post here, I seek some help from the pros in the film recording industry. I am a regular user of the Sanken Cos-11d PT, off late some of my lavs seem to have gotten worn out over time, so i called for 4 new COS-11D PT capsules on the 20th of Oct 2018, but unfortunately i have noticed that the new lavs being shipped have rather stiff cables, which makes it quiet difficult to wire talent, as the cables cause a bulge under costumes, my authorized dealer says that Sanken has now started shipping just these cables ,and the soft cables are not available anymore. Has anyone that has recently purchased the COS-11D PT facing the same problems, as im unable to find any info on the Sanken website or anywhere else on the internet, pls help as im rather disappointed with these new cables, unless there is a valid reason. Im considering returning them and opting for Countryman B6's or DPA 4063 lavs Thanks in advance. Roy.
