  1. Nice that Lectro are finally admitting there are issues, when I was having issues with mine they seemed to insinuate that I was using the gear incorrectly or that their gear was performing as intended. I returned mine for a SRB some time ago. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Same thing was happening to me, but I was definitely using my display name. Tapatalk seems to be playing up too, just shows a huge error message when I log in and in the end doesn't allow me to log in... Anyone else having issues with Tapatalk?
  3. I've been using Joes Sticky stuff, and then medical type tape... it's not perfect though. The snorkel tends to slip out of the hole Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, I have been having similar issues. PM sent Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. So you've tried swapping out the Tx? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You 100% sure the issue is with the SRb and not the Tx? I had a similar clicking noise which I narrowed down to a SMDa Tx... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Just curious if when doing real world tests with ZHD, were there any transmitters running in the bag close to the receiver, like if one were running a camera link/hop?
  8. I've had one in my kit for nearly 10 years. It's a fine microphone, easy enough to conceal and the sound quality is decent. I also mainly use COS-11's or B3/6's, but the Milimic is always there as a backup.
  9. I just used this exact system earlier this week (PSC earpiece, inductive neck loop, R1a/LMa) and it worked very well...
  10. Thanks for that info Gordon. Always a chance to learn something new here at JWSG! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. We use blocks here in Australia too. The American TV blocks. But it may surprise you that Australia is not a state in the US of A... Even though it sometimes feels like we are [emoji6]
  12. I was there a few months ago. Talent Tx on Lectro block 24, wireless boom on Lectro block 27, and Zaxcom link on block 25. Didn't have any issues
  13. Google took me to a site called Zoxoro Megastore or something. They were a little pricey actually, $30 each or something but I needed to replace my old Powerex ones in a hurry. Since I've only been using the Storacell ones for a few weeks there hasn't been any damage but I have been a little concerned... Oh, and yes, they were all fresh so looks like our brains are wired a little differently haha
  14. Mine look similar to yours Mark, though I've only been using them for a few weeks. I did like the AA holders that came with my Powerex rechargeables but they have all been damaged unfortunately.
  15. Yep, bought it, liked it, then it became faulty and ended up buying a 416 and swapping the 8060 for an MKH50. Loved the size and weight but was just too unreliable. Not sure if the issues have been sorted out yet or not but I've long since moved on...
  16. Thanks for the clarification Howy, really appreciate it...
  17. The thing is, I don't use my QRX in the bag, it's my hop/camera link receiver. So even when it is on a camera there is still a lot of lower level RF activity across the whole frequency range, and a few spikes too. However, a scan on the same block on a Lectro receiver shows a completely clear scan. I guess my question should be; Has anyone ever had a scan on a Zaxcom receiver that was completely clear?
  18. Glad it's not just me... Being in Australia, and often times in more remote areas, all of my Lectro receivers (411's, SRb's) on different blocks will show completely RF free scans, but my QRX when it was in block 25 would always be busy with lower level RF junk, and now that I've had it re-blocked to 22, still that same activity is there on the scan...
  19. Just curious here... When I scan on my block 22 UCR201, it will show a clear scan. A scan on my QRX100 will show a LOT of RF activity across the same block. Is it just a case of the QRX-100 being more sensitive? Is there something else at play here? There are no other factors (Tx etc) to influence the difference in the scans, just two receivers, side by side with no other equipment on. Very keen to hear from other users who use both Zaxcom & Lectro Rx and their experiences with the scanning functions of both. Cheers, Jason
  20. Just had my TRX900 & QRX100 done, $400 each plus Zaxcom replaced some parts and updated firmware on both for free! Re-tune and a service for a fair price...
  21. Was watching the film Aloha last night at a cute local theatre, and spotted one of (I presume) Mr Wexlers Zaxcom ERX's used as a prop radio or listening device in one of the opening scenes... The movie sounded excellent, unfortunately that was probably the highlight for me.
  22. See this post: http://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/topic/25244-tapatalk-again/&do=findComment&comment=296696
  23. I've shot in Shanghai with 24's...
