  1. Hi Paul, I was looking at 572 - 603mhz units, assuming I could dial frequencies in 25khz steps - what are the steps on your units? TIA
  2. Between long Coax cables and Dante, is there anything to be gained (excuse pun) by using BNC/cat5 baluns?
  3. You know the funny thing is when i saw the thread i thought - how much is a (used) T powered 415/416 etc and started looking on ebay. lol. Seems like all your Tonader advocacy has pushed the prices up. Not to mention power supplies and xlr-tuchel connectors.
  4. 833_SL2 seems to pull 20-30w which I calculate to result in trickle charging at best if using Bebob battery at the same time. I'm waiting on a cable before I can do much more with this for now.
  5. This looks like an interesting solution. Been repurposing some camera power products as there are some good value solutions. I'm currently trying to build a similar cart to those above and have experimented with a 150wh BEBOB V-lock battery. Using a 3a charger it will continue to O/P 16v from the V lock terminals while being charged through the DTap port. I've only tried this while the battery has been fully charged so i need to see what's what when it's running low. The charger actually has 2 DTap charging leads and a 4pin XLR 16v power O/P so hopefully it has enough to power the kit and charge the battery 1 way or the other, albeit slowly.
  6. DISCONTINUED! Already! Are you supporting this product still? https://www.wendysbroadcast.co.uk/broadcast-audio-products/?ct=vpt&id=2888 https://cvp.com/product/deity-connect-bp-trx?v=a I had the BP-TRX TC kit from release (June '21). 1 of the cables included was DOA. CVP explained Deity had no stock of cables(!) and after 4 attempts with then and every email related to Deity (who never replied once!) I need to spend c.$100 on a professionally made cable to use the system as planned. The menu and display aren't great either. Deity has no customer service in the UK.
  7. Cable bounce in the tube vs TX at the mic end of pole. I've wondered how much margin there is for serviceable improvement here too. I was hoping to see a picture of the cable in situ. A light cable would be quieter and keep overall weight down but unless it's made of NASA grade, Unicorn Starquad not sure it would last long in this context. Could woven cable sleeve give a light cable more working life AND cushion the bounce of the cable in the tube?
  8. Love this. Was using a fishing sling pack for my 633 which also has a fold down flap that's quite useful for dressing mics. Looking for similar but a bit bigger for the new setup.
  9. the drilled head bands look cool - probably a bit breaky.
  10. As a follow up: I stopped trying to reference the frequency co-ordination of TXA with those of the various RX in use (🤯) and just went with TXA (as advised by Compasseur and so far been very happy. Ran the scanner during a location recce, built a TX list, applied exclusions, pressed AUTO and dialled the numbers into the HW. 7 channels all good to go on the day. Next job, has no recce but I've built a new TX list specific to the shoot, dialled in the provision numbers and saved (to 'home') so i can compare numbers to results specific to the next location but the same TX list and change as required. I think my anxiety around the difference between TXA and the RX co-ordination is not knowing how TXA handles the different RF footprints of the specific brands and ranges? I guess if TXA uses the largest 'footprint' for the calculation it doesn't matter?
  11. All good with this part since you explained about using multiple customs exclusion lists. The other part I think I need to spend more time with the app and watch the videos again. Thank you for the reply.
  12. Thanks Roubi, obvious now you say it. 4 custom exclusions: everything up to 582; everything up to 606; everything from 614; everything from 638. Depending which 2 I deploy i can scan ch38 and/or 2 overlapping 32mhz (wisy friendly) bands with ch38 at 1 end or the other. There's probably something smarter but this will do. Is there a way to program or import a given brands receiver Groups into TXAdvance? Perhaps on the 'Edit TX' screen. When I'm trying to determine best freqs. it would be kinder to have both systems offer the same freqs. or am I missing some trick here too? I get the feeling either set of compatible freqs (offered by the RX or TXA) will work but have not determined if if 1 is better than the other. I tried locking the 1st TX to a frequency from 1 of the RX brand's groups but the AUTO button didn't modify the others to correspond to the rest of the freqs in the same (RX brand) group.

  14. I think an 'INCLUSION' list would do it for me ('CUSTOM INCLUSION' even)? Shure RX have this option. The easy way I found to limit the scan to legal bands, wisy limits etc was in location edit. But I have to remember it's there (which I don't always and it means I'm editing location details instead of RF details. If 'CUSTOM EXCLUSION' let me enter more than 1 exclusion band i could create a 'sandwich' for the band I want to include.
  15. How are people getting on with this? 1st day testing at home. Navigating between TX lists was a bit unintuitive (created an analogue 1 and digital 1). Main worry right now though is the spread of frequencies offered is either too wide to work with the 35 mhz limit of wisycom or if I apply a custom exclusion list (leaving 550 to 638) the app says no frequencies available. Maybe I just can't handle the RF truth but the wisy scanner will offer me freqs and in a smaller BW. Am I doing something wrong? I've tried reducing the gain as well, different antenna.

  17. remote the antennae - even a little bit should help.
  18. I got my F6 in Feb 2020(!) as a BU to my 633. Got me 'out of jail' when needed. Pity about the chip problems as its very convenient to carry for BU. I don't suppose Zoom are telling people the serial numbers involved. Happy to share S/N if it helps us find out the numbers.
  19. F6 is a useful recorder to have around. It would be nice to have a streamlined workflow for the 32 bit files that gave the client/situation the benefit without a laborious workflow.
  20. Guessing the model will be called MCR52 (if MPR52 or MCR42 are anything to go by).
  21. The ISDT chargers also let you dial the current used as well as handling multiple chemistries (not at the same time).
