    What happened to your Scorpio? I have a Scorpio and it’s been rock solid. Thanks
  3. Amazing! Thanks for finding that and the prompt reply. many thanks
  4. Unrelated to your question but where did you get that Velcro thingy that holds your COS11 please? Make and model also if you have it. That looks useful. I have about 50 COS11 which can get messy at times. Thanks
  5. What revision firmware are you running in your 833? 8.91 caused an issue with analog inputs 5 and 6 in some 833’s. Not sure what the issue was exactly. 8.92 fixed the problem. Regards
  6. So I have to apologize first of all. My bad memory! It wasn’t my friends 833 with this same problem, it was his Scorpio on one of the TA5 inputs. Same issue though, distortion after a while. He hasn’t had it fixed yet so no info regarding repair. Confirming my Scorpio does not display this problem. Sorry for the confusion. Regards
  7. This exact same problem happened to a friend of mine with his 833 on channel 5 IIRC. This has not occurred with my Scorpio on any input and I’ve used them all on long days. Seems to be an 833 thing after the machine warms up. Sorry to hear about your problem but at least you know what it is now. Good luck
  8. Without rereading through the replies, I don’t think you’ve mentioned trying the SL6 on a different filter. It appears you have Lectro SRC in A1 and C1. So have you tried the SL6 filter set to 470-700 instead of the “wideband” setting? For example, If you have a scene where you only use C1, set the SL6 filter to 580-700. The SL6 filter really matters and makes a huge difference. Please report back. Thanks
  9. Try the SL6 filter on another band that suits. I have a Scorpio with SL6 and if I’m on the wrong filter, it’s very bad. Im on 580-700 with no problems and excellent range with Lectro SRC in C1.
  10. I use the 64 and 128 GB 150MB/s and they’re both fine. Having said that, I’ve also been using the Extreme Pro version with no issues. The 95MB/s ones are fine and the 170MB/s version has also been fine in my Scorpio. Just buy the Extreme version, gold in colour. They’re cheaper anyway and they’re solid. Regards Peter
  11. No worries Jeff. Battery discussion is fine and informative for all. However, it’s a very obvious “sales” kind of tone that comes through. Maybe the ZMT4 needs its own thread or a personal message to Backfocus about a demo unit might’ve been more ethical.
  12. I was trying to hold my tongue but I can’t believe you guys are hijacking this Sound Devices thread to talk Zaxcom and make sales. Zaxcom make nice reliable products and I own some Zaxcom items that I really like, their service is also great, but really? Congratulations to Sound Devices, more nice products for us to choose from. BTW, can the A20 receive signals from other brands like Lectrosonics for example? For those who have many transmitters from other manufacturers (like me 😉) Also, can they slot into an SL6? Thanks
  13. Lectro 1 issue sounds like the TA5F connector is not seated in the tx properly. I’ve heard that thumping sound before and it’s usually a seating problem. Make sure the TA5F is plugged in properly. The other examples sound like RF issues. You haven’t mentioned what receivers you’re using. If you’re using a Sound Devices SL2 or SL6, make sure you’ve chosen the correct band for your transmitters. If not, you will definitely have problems. Cheers
  14. Check your firmware revision. 8.71 fixed a rare bug that caused an issue as you describe. Tracks that appeared armed were not actually armed. It only happened on 833 and 888. I always use ISO (never ALL) for monophonic track to media routing on my Scorpio and never experienced any problems with recorded tracks.
  15. I used this for a handheld mic holder but now I use it on the front of my kit bag. It’s adjustable. Has a clip on it. Holds boom pole and sometimes my umbrella! cheers https://ktekpro.com/product/kbac2-boom-accessory-clip/
