  1. Thanks. And yes, I have contacted Zaxcom also.
  2. Hello,I have started to have some issues over the last few weeks with the files being converted off of some of my ZMT3 recorders. but it is intermittent.In a day on a card in the ZMT3, there may be say 7 or 8 files of audio created, which get converted and brought into the avid timeline and synced. I have had a few shoots where certain cast members files, files 4-7 are the only ones ZAXconvert will convert. And when I ask Zaxconvert to do files 1-3 it says "file too small to convert". I checked and the ZMT3's were definitely recording at the time, they were, and this is leading to us losing several hours of each cast member's audio.ZAXconvert and the ZMT3's are on the latest firmware I believe.Has anybody else had this problem and can anybody help?Thanks in advance.Sarah

  4. Thanks Jason, that did the trick. boy, stay away from the trRs headphones with these! What pouches are people using for these? Im in reality TV and need a protective pouch that still lets the producers change channels regularly. ie. a pouch with a transparent window.
  5. Hi There, Im having an issue with my URX100 (most likely user error) but here it is: When I plug in headphones to the headphone jack the screen just keeps flashing and the volume climbs by 5 each time it flashes until it gets to 100. I do not have anything plugged into the TA5 at the time. what am i doing wrong here? Thanks.

    Zaxcom error 17.

    Has anybody had the below error, I have a days recording from my ZFR300 which is refusing to convert. Any help would be much appreciated.
  7. No Worries!! Software update from Zaxcom fixed my IFB problem fyi. v70
  8. Hi there, Have just purchased 6 TRXLA3's and my sound assist cannot pickup confidence monitoring on his/her erx reciever. Its strange, The Zaxnet frequencies are the same and the ERX's light goes green to show a signal is being picked up but alas nothing can be heard (record beeps or audio). Via UHF the QRX235's I have in my cart can pickup the TRXLA3's uhf signal fine, And The ERX's can pick up the QRX's IFB transmition (on a different 2.4 ghz Frequency) fine as well. But the signal from the TRXLA3's zaxnet output direct to the ERX's (1st gen and latest gen) cannot be heard. Which is challenging as the Sound assist needs to hear the beeps to confirm that the packs are rolling record. The firmware on the ERX's are up to date. Does anybody have a fix? Just to confirm the packs are : TRXLA3's (mono). THe IFB's are a combo of ERX3TCD and ERX2TCD both tried. The Cart recievers are new QRX235's with the IFB option. Thanks in advance.
  9. Lets be honest, He sounds like he's on a tight budget and not trying to take any sound Mixers jobs so lets cut him some slack. He's come to JWSound for advice which is what this forum is supposed to be all about, so lets give it to him. I would recommend 3 x ZFR300's, one for each talent. And a master. Get an ERX reciever and jam that to the same timecode as the master and put it in to the Camera's Timecode in. Get a sennheiser ME66 and it can be the camera mic or a mobile boom mic plugged in to the third ZFR300 (WHEN NOT IN USE). As far as monitoring you will be limited for range but with visible Lav mics you should be fine. Hire some gear or borrow it (there should be some people that can help you here?) that myk Guy is from NZ) from a production company that has it and try it out on a test shoot if you can. The main challenge you have is that you have 3 x talent. It can be done mate, Dont give up! And dont listen to the naysayers. Best of luck.
  10. Yes in the bag. with a sound devices 633.
  11. What is the IFB audio range like for the QRX235 compared to the IFB100 for directors (who have erx's). The specs say the ifb 100 has 75mw power and the QRX235 has 50 mw, But how are people finding the difference out in the field?
  12. Is it true that Zaxcom has the Patent on any trx with a recording function? Apologies if this is well known.
