  2. Thanks all! Great help and advice from all! Even the Senator contributed wise words... at last!! Take care... AT
  3. Hi all I have a job coming up soon whereby the UPM has asked me to supply a reliable in-ear monitoring system that will allow the lead character to speak/cue to a "plant" character in a public place without the system being seen - either on-camera or even slightly visible to people around him/her. One trusted supplier suggests the "Phonak" system, and they sure do appear that they'll work as I need them to, but, evidently there's none available for hire in Sydney/Melbourne, or so I'm told... And at close to AU$6k for 1 x TX & 1 x RX, its not viable to buy for a 10 day job. I'd be keen to learn if there are any other systems that I've not heard of etc, maybe theres other slightly cheaper options...? Your thoughts...? Rgd's AT
  4. Hi, I'm using the AudioRoot BG-DU system with generically branded V-Lock batteries. Sure, the AudioRoot system has an unfortunate name, but this particular product is for me anyway, one of the best, most sophisticated power distribution systems I've ever used or seen. It has some very well thought out functions and, so far, it works very well indeed! I'd highly recommend this product. Rgds AT
  5. Glen Better off ignoring him. He's just looking for attention again, he has a very bad case of relevancy deficiency syndrome. He's beyond all expectations for help. He's a bit like the lonely, tired old circus clown who only knows one trick... It was a mildly amusing trick early last century, and he never bothered to learn any new tricks as that one trick worked before, it really did! It actually got him some attention for a short while - but a very short while it was indeed. Now we can only pity him and his pathetic, desperate clutches to be heard just once more... A sad, bitter and mostly irrelevant, tired old clown.
  6. Hi all I recently bought a power distribution from these guys: http://www.audioroot.fr/product-category/power-distributors/ Very, very cool product. Very well made and the ability to "learn" each of your individual batteries characteristics is fantastic. I personally like the Hirose 4-pin plugs for use in powering applications, they rarely break, they lock-in to the source and they're reasonably easy to get. It's the best power distribution option that I've seen/used, thus far... Rgd's AT
  7. Thanks guys! Issue resolved, TOD TC as audio on ch 2 and mixed guide audio on ch 1. Which is what I asked for from day 1, but theres evidently some "whiz kid" in the post department who knows everything - about everything too! I'm still using V7:20 on the IFB and V1:22 on the ERX's. I'm kinda cautious about firmware updates if the kit is still working as it says on the box, but, this time its seemingly not doing that anymore, so I guess updates across the board are in order! AT
  8. But am I wrong in expecting the IFB100/ERXTC to sync the very moment the IFB100 senses an incoming, rolling TC signal? Isn't that the whole idea? Or am I missing something...? AT
  9. Nate I guess thats probably the safest way, but the post house wants sound files on REC/RUN... Sadly the camera is a DSLR, which as you'd well know just adds to the problem! So I guess we're gonna rethink that one! AT
  10. Hi all I'm having trouble in establishing 100% confidence in how my Zax IFB100 receives TC from my 788 along with a L/R audio mix and then sends the signals to various ERXTC units. When setting this system up I've been using REC/RUN TC from my 788 so I can see if/when the IFB100 senses the TC signal, jams it and starts transmitting. As soon as I hit REC I assumed that the IFB100 would jam/sync instantly and then the REC/RUN TC would be seen on both the IFB100 and therefore the ERXTC. And then when I hit STOP the TC on the 788 stops as it should, but the TC on the IFB100 and the ERXTC continues on rolling...?? They don't cut rolling TC at all, ever it seems! Until powered off anyway! The assumption that the IFB100 senses the incoming TC instantly is wrong. It sometimes takes up to 2-5 minutes before it'll jam/sync with the 788 - however, in that lapsed time, its been sending a false TC as the IFB100/ERXTC never stopped rolling on the last cut - they both continued rolling from when my 788 stopped.... Now this is a major problem. As the IFB/ERXTC units have now been sending the WRONG TC at the start of the next roll! The units DO NOT jam/sync instantly at all - it can take MINUTES! WTF is that about?? So now if the job cuts & rolls often - as is often the case these days - all the transmitted TC will be out of sync with my 788 - that is until it catches up and jam/syncs in the middle of a take! Won't we be popular in the post-prod departments! What am I doing wrong here? Surely its some setting somewhere that I've missed...? Please advise ASAP! Rgd's Andrew
  11. Sometimes thats true, but what is true is that never get what you DON'T pay for!
  12. I can't live/work without my units for that long, is no-one at John Barry's able to do the upgrade? They are, as far as I know, the AU agents for Lectro's. Rgd's Andrew
  13. Hi all Can I update from version 2:18 or must I go through earlier versions first? I live in fear of these updates, they freak me out a bit... Rgds Andrew
  14. Hi all Thanks for your input here! Gratefully acknowledged! Rgd's Andrew
