  1. GT: " 3) That's why it's called the mix track. 4) Generally the village listens to the production mix while shooting " 5) that is what the executives will be hearing with dailies
  2. cory: " Have people other than the ones on this forum been made aware of this issue? " I would suspect that if other folks, like users not on the forum, are having an issue, they would contact their dealer or Zaxcom. and, of course, if they are not having the issue they are living blissfully unaware, which is fine...
  3. Crus: " My question was about the state and future of wireless microphone technology. " it is cloudy... there are few clear predictions. wireless microphones are currently being used in VHF band and higher bands, though the equipment is not as widly available yet... there are bigger fish than us swimming in this ocean, and they are also concerned, even "very concerned", and still the view remains: cloudy. meantime we have gigs to do, and we have tools available.... practically nothing is completely future-proof just like your phone or PC, so upgrading is certainly in the future...
  4. MM: " Unfortunately the real estate industry still revolves around the windows " why, is it not working well for "the industry" ?
  5. CS: " so I assume the buyer ... pays that automatically. " beware, you could get burned...
  6. Cruss: " But we're talking about what 4 years of potential use now? 5? " once again, note that there are tax implications, but gear like this should be considered as 4-5 years, and anything after that is bonus... my remark about 10 year old gear (or how ever many years!) was meant to be a bit facetious, as there are a lot of folks here who suffer from "shiny new toys syndrome"... JP: " Why would anyone know what your gear is? " of course the clients typically neither know nor care what specific gear we have or use, as we tend to be hired for "results". jwill gets it: " ....black rectangle things!! Cmooon Maaaan "
  7. Glenn: " If you have a MAXX with an internal transmitter and are having this problem when the input voltage is over 14 Volts call us at Zaxcom and we will get it taken care of for you. We will be happy to take care of any effected units one on one with our customers. Glenn " field: " Bravo! Bam problem solved! " see, and I thought that was obvious! I can't understand why thope didn't just contact Zaxcom (24/7) and find that out...
  8. Hi, and welcome Whittle: " suddenly I am hearing a high pitched tone on inputs 9-12." CRAP happens, sometimes suddenly... " Anyone else heard of this problem? " typically... and you really ought to contact either Zaxcom, or your local dealer...
  9. bab: " Could it be something in the connector end, the right ear cup, or maybe some solder touching something it shouldn't? " yep, or maybe a wiring error... basic troubleshooting 101: a DMM is your friend
  10. JG: " You miss my initial point though that it's all for TV. " OK, fair enough, ...but I see the point that we, individual production sound folks, who will use these on the end of a boom or fishpole are not the biggest market sector for Rycote, thus they have other considerations than ours in designing and marketing their products...
  11. ...and you could be asking the nice folks who you bought your wireless from...
  12. and, of course, you could just buy a windows computer...
  13. CK: " Tried the Google thing and not much came up. " and I got a number of pages of links...
  14. wiki: " In rhetoric and ethics, two wrongs make a right and two wrongs don't make a right are phrases that denote philosophical norms. "Two wrongs make a right" is a fallacy of relevance, in which an allegation of wrongdoing is countered with a similar allegation. Its antithesis, "two wrongs don't make a right", is a proverb used to rebuke or renounce wrongful conduct as a response to another's transgression. "
  15. free: " is that a modified shure 57 attached to it? " no 545L
  16. and this: In a strongly worded brief filed Monday in Georgia state court, lawyers for the parents of Sarah Jones sought to maintain public access to videos and photographs of the train accident that killed their daughter during production of the film Midnight Rider in February, and to preserve the right of the lawyers and parties in the case to speak to the media. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/midnight-rider-sarah-jones-family-753108?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_term=hollywoodreporter_therace&utm_campaign=THR%20Race%20Alerts_now_2014-12-01%2016%3A16%3A12_knordyke http://deadline.com/2014/12/sarah-jones-midnight-rider-public-record-csx-train-video-1201304819/
  17. PS: " At similar RF output voltages, " we do not measure transmitter output in voltage, we measure it in watts, as it is "power"
  18. CK: Neopax has already been mentioned, and you can check with the dealer who sold you the units for their ideas, and eBay is a big place to have fun... also, Amazon... and BTW, there have been previous discussions of pouches on here.... Google, first search term is jwsoundgroup.net, and... (you can figure the rest out!)
  19. Ron: " I am sorry I do not have a link to their website " MS is a grown up, and can do a search of this forum, I recommend Google, and the first search term is jwsoundgroup.net; let MS figure it out from there...
  20. BC: " looking specifically for the best way " there is no single best way, depending on a number of variables. typically, major credit card transactions are pretty good in a variety of situations. With international clients you need to be specific including that the remittance needs to be in your local currency and net after all charges and fees; but, typically credit card transactional fees are absorbed by the business accepting the card. there is also the constant fluctuating of the currencies, leading to the expression: "flucted, again"
  21. reads to me as though BETSO is working hard to be on top of the customer service game... Roberto, how did the replacement work ? and welcome Jan...
  22. bralle: " : a bit of a Cinela Rippoff(OK,OK Rycote has had many rippoffs so they have some right) " well, I'm sure both companies have folks who could take up any "rip-off's", and two wrongs do not make a right.
  23. actually, some folks may want to work on Christmas Day (or other holidays)... thus: it depends
