  1. I personally think lectro did beat it with the ssm. The sm was awesome at the time but the aa lithiums were expensive and the heat was a little too warm on people at times. But in a sea of large packs the introduction of the sm was incredible for the times, and they improved on it well thru the years. After a while, The rechargeable options were great, but didnt last long - half the time at best and caused more heat it seemed. I thought the ssm was a great upgrade. But that zmt4…it is serving my needs perfect. this world of micro transmitters as a whole is the place to be. They all keep getting better with time. I think this A20 will find its place. Seems like a cool piece!
  2. Me too - just got the wipes and salvaged a bunch of sankens that all became gummy in the cables. Glad i saw this thread. It really works and they are back in rotation
  3. Just curious if there is a small size product available or better yet if anyone has done a DIY project for sequencing power to devices from battery distribution. I am finding in a particular situation now that if I could flip the switch and then program power to a specific device to turn on 15 seconds later, it would work wonders. I have a furman M8S At home that sort of triggered the idea of it.
  4. Bingo i think that was it - thanks jack. Its the power sequence that i had changed recently and you remind me I had sorted this out once before. Appreciate it!
  5. I was restoring a file from my camera link micro SD card today. time code was time of day solid all day long, but some of the files have an accurate stamped time code and some do not. Somewhat random. I understand from time to time I may power up the mixer and turn it off quickly and it hasn’t had a chance to jam to time code. But this file in particular is three separate interviews with a total length of one hour and 18 minutes but the time code starts at 00. Not a deal breaker for this particular project, but potentially might be in the future if i dont fix it now. I will call the shop in the morning but was just curious if anybody here has run into files not grabbing timecode stamps? Wideband cam link v2-86 and sanDisk ultra +16 GB microSD
  6. My bad, unfortunately my transmitter was on talent at the time. V4-05 is what i show
  7. I seem to have a hangup with putting my zmt4 to sleep and unable to wake or back to on. When i send the signal from the nova to make the transmitter off, setting it to "wake" and switching to "on" brings the transmitter back but it's almost as if there is no voltage for the mic. I see green as if the transmitter is back on but no audio. My only fix is to go back to the transmitter, power off and back up again and all is back to normal operation. Anyone else have this happen? my zmt-x comes back to full operation with "wake" and my zmt3's comes back to full operation with "on".
  8. This came up in another discussion thread and i was curious to know if any nova operators are using built in noise reduction. This is new to me, and It seems like something plausible for camera tracks for clients who edit straight from camera with unaffected tracks as backup, etc. does anyone here do something similar? What might be your workflow?
  9. Can you post a photo of the charger you have? Not sure i can help but i can try - i have 2x single chargers that are dif types and i can take a look
  10. Checking to see if anyone here might know if it is possible to turn off the audible beep alarm on a sony f5 at the headphone jack. I see system menu settings for alarm trigger parameters but not for audio level of alarm specifically as i rtfm
  11. ...followup - bingo - WAKE from nova did it for the zmtx, whereas ON works for my older zmt3’s (as well as WAKE Now that i had time to test). I’ve used ON so much out of habit with all my previous transmitters I forgot WAKE was even an option. Thanks John!
  12. Just checked - version 3-19 on the zmtx and will try wake today this transmitter in question was purchased new recently so 3-19 was from the factory and from what i see 3-17d is most current? I will check in with howy monday morn but thanks John for reply
  13. Wondering if there might be a known issue as i just ran into this today. I have 1x zmtx and 2x zmt3’s on talent and TRX OFF-ON set to LOW (OFF) works perfect at the transmitters but when bringing back to ON, i cant seem to get the zmtx to come back on without going to the unit and powering off and back on physically. Zmt3’s come back as normal. All settings same across all trx’s. Will have to check on fw revs after shoot but curious if anyone else ran into this or might have suggestions i may be overlooking?
  14. Mode 3 or 6 on lectro transmitters to taste as i believe ifb mode does not work transmitting to sennheiser receivers. off topic from the original post but i do use in the reverse sennheiser plugon transmitters with stick mics and get satisfactory results with 411 receivers in the same modes above. Not feature film quality for sure but beats some lower grade alternatives with live and eng stuff
  15. Thank you this i did not know! I always thought I was lacking that by not being all sennheiser
