jimmyjernigan posted a topic in EquipmentI've observed this forum for years and used it as a resource to guide me through gear, technique, business practices, etc. Since this is my first post, I just wanted to say that I am humbled and grateful to everyone for sharing your knowledge. The discussions, arguments, and even outright verbal fist fights have been valuable to guiding me to the answers to my questions. I've scoured the forum, but haven't found anything for a particular problem I've been having. I bought 2 ERX2tcd units a few months ago (receiving ifb signal from a qrx235) and immediately noticed a frequent glitching sound in the audio. Sent the all of the units back to Zaxcom (including the 235) to get checked out, but when I got them back, there didn't seem to be any improvement. So… I took everything over to Trew in Nashville, where I purchased them, and we set up a few test scenarios mixing my units, one of their nomads as transmitter and a couple of their ERX's. Every test had the glitches. I had a conversation with Howie, and he explained how the system worked and why I might be hearing what I was hearing. He also offered to take another look at the system. However, before I take him up on the offer, I just want to make sure my expectations are reasonable compared to what other users are experiencing. To the ERX users out there, Is your audio clean? Do you have any glitches, if so, how frequent? The linked video illustrates what I'm hearing... https://jimmyjernigan.com/zax/ERXGlitch.m4v
File half recorded on 788t
Diego Sanchez posted a topic in EquipmentHi all So 2 days ago i was recording a tv add in a house and today i got that awful call from production: 'one of the files is incomplete'. I checked the hard drive of the 788t and on it the file is also incomplete. The camera take is 11:15 and the audio take only 1:38. The weird thing is, the audio is the last 1:38 of the video, not the beginning! During recording no message came up, the recorder didn't freeze or anything like that. I have the A-Time in big numbers so i don't recall seeing the timer of the take at the end of it. Has this ever happen to anyone? Now i need to write an insurance report (1 time ever) and explain what could have gone wrong. Any ideas? Thanks Diego
