  1. I use the older Lectro UFM filter/amp with mini circuit splitters. Using the called for amp setting to match the number of channels splitting and good gosh do I get great performance with my Venue 1 and Zaxom QRX200/TRX743 combo. Zuca rig has 8 way splitter with proper amp setting and same performance!
  2. Agree with Derek... Come down to the damm bayou with ZERO internet access in certain places and now have to listen to producers or DIT's bitch and moan we can't provide this...Sorry, but no thanks. Haven enough to worry about.
  3. Imagine the beeping going off in a Producers Pocket or Purse!! Classic..
  4. I tested a similar system a year ago... Reflections, it's not mentioned but if you beam it straight towards you and you move, the sound will bounce of the surface behind you.. We were testing as a possible "Group" earwig replacement to a night thing in a quiet area.. Reflections killed the idea.
  5. I use a Hi-Q battery with DIY splitter that powers both the Papi and Micron... I've seen someone make a dual cable Hi-Q power adapter... Hope to pick one up next time I get to work. Which at this point will still be a while..
  6. Size played a part but for me it was the sound.. The low end of the Papi is what I would describe as "Tighter" than the MM1 that's with Rolloff set equal on both.. I always struggled with that part of the sound... The high end is crystal clear and has a nice warm feel in the Mid's.... Downside of Papi is no internal Battery... There are times that would be Great to have..
  7. I've been using Micron TX700 wireless since 2014..At first I paired it with the SD MM1 preamp, now I have it paired with the Mozegear Papi. Most would consider it clunky, my boom op wears a pack for them, powered by a small battery that lasts all day... But, damm I love how it sounds.. Super warm sound and extremely low noise floor. The Papi's preamp sounds excellent and a very transparent limiter.. Range for a 30mw system is outstanding with its true diversity receiver.. I tried a few Digital systems a few years back and while the sound was good I had range issues, particularly when encountering metal objects which on the show I was on at the time was practically every day..
  8. Stumbled on this Pic... Looks like it's from the Pilot Episode with Capt Pike
  9. 250mw is the only way I can get past all the garbage Camera/Crane setups put out... 100mw just get's caught in the wash..
  10. Or better yet.. Put one transmitter on an Ankle Strap and the other on a waste pack.. Little more real world...
  11. Boy that Eagle Eye and Cinieye look to be twins!
  12. Last week I picked up a Linksys RE9000 AC3000 wireless repeater.. I emailed the Cineyes peeps to ask if repeaters worked and they said yes.. So, rolled the dice and got one.. Happy to say it was an absolute breeze to setup and just testing at home it made a substantial improvement in range without adding any latency... I could test this by getting close enough for one tablet to be connected direct to Cineyes and the other tablet to the Repeater and noticed no difference... For the most part the latency is not huge for me, I got to use it before the shutdown and really just need to see who's talking.. I also use the Decimator DMON-QUAD to pack up to 4 inputs to 1 feed...once money going again will probably pickup a used Ipad Mini or Ipad to step in for Samsung Tablet... The S4 Wifi not the greatest..
  13. Thinking of 2 TRX+ units or possible orignal Wifi master set to Slave.. Blink data not a big deal.. Here's what I was hoping to accomplish... TRX+ on follow cart and serves as TC Master. Utility uses the Timecode Buddy app to set the Timecode to Time OF Day. Then uses unit to Jam slates and whatever else. On my main/small cart have possibly WiFi Master or TRX+ set to slave rf so when Utility pops on, I'm in sync and ready.. I started making follow cart the TC Master because I swap between carts often and his cart is generally closer to set... The wave and pulse are cool be are serious overkill..
  14. Any Timecode Systems TRX+ users out there.. Have a question.. If you don't have a Pulse or Wave, can you still connect to the TRX+ with the Timecode Buddy? Only function I really would want it to easily set its timecode to Time Of Day.. Thx
