  1. Just (finally) bought into the Smart Battery (after running the bag off Dtap V-locks and BPU batteries for ages)... Hot off the charger (with both the LED on top and the AudioRoot portable charger led's saying the battery is full - all illuminated constant) they measure wildly different voltages, and a fair bit lower than even 10yr-old vlocks. Everything is running through a BDS v4u, and I'm measuring the voltage using the displayed ext voltage on an RX200, nothing else in the bag turned on. Vlock measures 16.3v, while one IE is 15.7, another is 16.2, another was 16.0v. As all these batteries have the same 16.8v full-charge voltage, this is odd to me. Normal? Do I just need to leave them sit on the charger for longer?
  2. I'd like to see Neverclip in the +48v version if it means it's at the expense of the Zaxnet transmit function i.e.: it can still RX tc and gain control but loses the ERX monitor function. How much space those two functions take up respectfully / if that's even possible I have no idea, but I personally would find the unit more attractive that way.
  3. It also kind of looks like the custom RED that Fincher got made for 'MindHunter' https://www.cinema5d.com/david-finchers-custom-red-xenomorph-for-netflixs-mindhunter/
  4. Will the new menu structure come over to the older 'non-ZHD' transmitters as well? Does it matter if you have the OLED screen or not?
  5. Glenn can you link to the Zaxcom front end plot? I'd like to see it
  6. Others may do it differently. Here's my method. Use a small piece of blu-tac to cover the foam 'spring' from the hot glue. Or, just be more accurate with how you pump it in there - let it dry in sections. I notch out all the small connectors (TA3, TA5, 3.5mm etc), it's EXTREMELY difficult to solder through a hole.
  7. They're low-profile USB connectors, similar to the ones Apple uses. You buy the pinset and the cover/grommet separately. Ive taken the 'lock' out, which is what stops the pinset going this far back into the cover. I've then drilled the right angle exit (the cable should come out of the back, and connected using Zaxlan wiring, and sealed the connector up.
  8. And now for something a little bit different: Not XLRs, but custom low profile RA USB for Zaxnet serial connection. Normal USB connectors end up with bent cable exits from hitting the bottom of the bag.
  9. Loaded up alright. I assume the 'two bolts' are in the bottom rear bar, and this is also what stops that section falling down? I really like the folding design. You may have another customer.
  10. Only works if you RECORD the X1 track. Otherwise, there's nothing feeding the X1 output. X1 and X2 are inputs to outputs, whereas x3 and x4 are tracks to outputs. I think that's how it works.
  11. Just remember to wear the Drop Bear repellant and you'll probably be fine. Maybe.
  12. Both suggestions are helpful! Derek, I have considered the SKP1000, and it's a viable option. i just remember a certain post. I'm pretty sure the amp in question wasn't the PSC one, and boosted output levels to something ridiculous (and most likely illegal), but looked like a fun DIY option. I've got a standard G3 with busted antenna and just thought I'd see what I could find. many thanks.
  13. Thanks Mike, Those are two more that I was able to find, and one does talk about connecting to a Shure amp, but it's still not quite what I was looking for. I'm beginning to think the post may have been deleted. Or I'm going mad. Or both.
  14. Thanks, but that's one of the ones I found - I even posted in that thread in its infancy - but not the one I'm looking for. Theres a specific post where the subject changes from how to do the sma mod, to about then connecting the modded Tx to a linear amp. I think it linked to an rflinks.com micro-amp page but it was more the rest of the post content that was interesting. thanks though!
  15. Now I've done hours of searching on this site and on others, but I haven't found what I KNOW I've seen... There is a thread that talks about extending the range of Sennheiser G3/G2 units by swapping out the factory antenna for an SMA BUT THEN goes on to talk about connecting to a small RF AMP. I cannot for the life of me find it. Anyone know what I'm talking about or where it is? I think it may have also been cross-posted on one of the many Facebook group sites but the search on Facebook is even tougher than on here. Thanks!
  16. Distortion, or digital garbling? The latter is the 'dropout compensator' doing its best if the Zaxnet signal is on the fringe of reception. The range of Zaxnet transmission from the body transmitter line is quite small, not more than a few meters LOS in my experience.
  17. The coax dipole doesn't require a Balun as the shield section pulled back over the core serves the same purpose. I have this info from Lectro Larry somewhere in an email, if I can find it I'll post it here.
  18. CameraLink has very different dimensions to the QRX and MicPlexer
