  1. Without the 1k resistor you get an increase in distortion ..you can wire servo bias for lectro tx without a 1k resistor that wire (white?) goes straight to pin 5 with no resistor, instead of going thru a 1k to pin 1..servo bias is the prefered method if wiring..
  2. Intermittent with TC isnt as big issue as if a bad genlock connector due to 50ohm plug .intermitent genlock on camera will ruin the entire video recording for that take..so best to stick to 75 ohm bnc for tc and genlock..
  3. All bnc tc os 75 ohm 50ohm connectors will eventusly trash the tc socket..its to do with pin diam..if yiu look at a socket you can tell right away what is 50 ohm.and 75 ohm https://labrigger.com/blog/2012/10/05/use-50-ohm-bncs-not-75-ohm/
  4. Those are helical antennas and not very efficient..i would if you dont have other whip anntenas cut a couple of 7 inch bits of straight thin wire and without damaging tje sma socket poke wire into socets and do a walk.test if you are getting further than before then its prob the anntemas..those audio ltd are from the mid nineties pre diversity so getting on now so could be a off tune issue as well..there are two diff freqs make sure and try both..
  5. I would try a sanken cs3e its the best shotgun type mic indoors with reflections etc due to its 3 x capsules..has great reach doesnt have as much issues with comb filtering etc as standard interference tube shotgun microphones..
  6. Hm set to 15v not 48v? Or HM not outputting full 48v?
  7. Neumamn km185 is psueda balanced positive is on pin 3 not pin 2..i suspect something with screen on cable as km185vis essntialy unbalnced a balanced microphone like your Rode will work without a screen..do yku have any wirelss hops on bag that could be bleeding thru a bad screen...
  8. Zoom dont even offer a repair service for their products..the cedar price is to make it worth while to both companies since cedar will be losing sales of the stand alone unit IMHO..
  9. A thing about the hirose adaptors to remember is that when you connect an ext dc battery to the hirose connector they are akways powered on as the dc regulator in the adaptor. Is always on so will slowly drain your ext battery overnight etc so always disconnect ext batt when not being used.
  10. Yes that would work..in set up you currently have src needs to be unbal out pin 1 and 2 only on ta3 and you lose 6db gain going unbal from SRC..by going thru a transformer isolator you keep full gain as its balaced in from src and unbal out via trandformer so no gain drop..it is more bulk to put in your bag tho 2 x Ice Cube..and if using other transformers isolating make sure they can handle the full line level out from the SRC, the Radial Ice Cube says it can handle pro line level so you would be good to go with 2 x Radial Ice cube iso..
  11. Hi I'm assuming in the camera you would be recording M onto ch1 and S onto ch2.. and the signal will be matrices in the edit to L\R stereo..with m and s when you mono the signal the S disappears so if you had 2 people and it sounded good as they were picked up on the S love that will disappear when monied..you never recorded dialogue on the S lobe for this reason the m capsule has to capture all the dialogue. The s capsule will also pick up a lot of camera handling noise..the MSH10 is quick bulky diameter wise so the sanken will fit better..sanken do a hypercardiod version of the cms 50 I can
  12. Hi Derek i havent but i know the MSH8 has a slightly better stereo image for music etc but no reach being cardiods..but i cant rate the MSH10 high enough the M hypercardiod capsule sounds great ive compared to my mkh50 on sit down interviews etc and its on a par with the Mkh50 inc s/n which is a lot lower than the specs suggest -13db for M capsule the 16db is the S capsule..ive used outside for normal booming instead of a 416 etc and the reach is great..which is how i use it normal dialogue in docs with stereo atmos or actuality when i need it..and very light on boom fits a rycote windjammer 2
  13. Hi Dietrich, my Pearl MSH10 was sensitive to RF from.my zaxcom.hop/cell phones etc..Pearl redesigned a new RF resistant Board and it cured all issues..i think the new pearl msh 10 will prob have the new designed board fitted. Richard
