  1. Hey everyone! Wanted to get some opinions on servo vs standard lectrosonics wiring, which has always been a little grey for me. I realize that if I get servo, I wont be able to use the lav on an older style lectro transmitter. On a cos 11, the servo used three wires, opposed to the standard wiring which uses 2? I could have this backwards... Anyway, a word from the field is what I am looking for, is there a noticeable noise floor and overload buffer difference between the two? Thanks! Jbob
  2. Hi there, I have a UH400A Lectrosonics Butt Plug and is having some kind of weird noise whenever I plug onto my shotgun Mic. I have tested it with many cables on different mounts and the noise is still there even when its on my cinela piannisimo(internal cabling) . It has proven that the high pitch noise is def coming from the UH400A. I have recorded a proof of the noise issue and wondering if any of the user encountered a similar problem? Love to hear your solution before deciding to send it back to the mothership for repair! Kindly click on the link to listen to the recording. https://we.tl/t-9Pq6LbKeIP I've also uploaded as an attachment here if case you can't download through the link. Please help! TESTT01.WAV

    Lectro SMV battery drain

    I am running two Lectro SMV's at 100mW and they are draining batteries. I'm getting an hour or less out of a single AA lithium battery. This is getting expensive and getting worse. The units are probably 5/6 years old and that paste on the threads has long gone. Any ideas as to what is happening? I worked with someone else's gear recently and they were having the same issue. I'm also getting audio (not frequency) dropouts on the SRb receiver. Is it related? Thoughts? Solutions?
  4. The current conversion or update price to change an SRa to an SRb is $250 in the US. That price will be good until 31 July 2013. It will increase 50% to $375 after 31 July 2013. At the end of the year, we will drop the conversion "deal". Current cost for a block change is $752.38 and the SRb conversion uses exactly the same parts and requires the same alignment. So, at the end of the year the conversion may get pricey. Note that at $375, it is still half price. If you can't get a unit in before 31 July, simply make an appointment before then for a conversion before 30 Sept 2013. This gives you 50+ days to decide to rob the piggy bank and 111 days to find a break in your schedule. If you have a firm appointment, the crew is good about turning the units around for a specific return date. In the past few months, we have have done a thousand conversions in bulk. That is slowing down and in a few months it will start becoming similar to a regular repair. Hence the pricing change. Best Regards, Larry Fisher Lectrosonics
  5. Can anyone confirm if the Lectrosonics UM200b and 400a transmitters will work with UCR100 receivers? of course -in the same frequency block, but wanted to check to see if any other issues I'm not aware of. I know lots of folks run LMa's w UCRs, but curious about the 200 / 400 tx compatibilities Thanks for the advice.
  6. The SRc, SMV, SMQV, HHa and HMa are now available in the newly expanded 941-960 MHz frequency band for part 74 Licensed users in the US: https://www.lectrosonics.com/US/lectrosonics-announces-the-availability-of-select-digital-hybrid-wireless-expanded-941-960-mhz-frequency-band.html -Karl
  7. The new 2.0 Update offers iXML Header Support, which allows for recordings to contain industry-standard iXML data in the file headers, enabling easy handling in typical editing software. And Filesystem Protection adds provisions to protect recorded data on the Micro SD card when users mount the card onto a computer. The menu structure has also been updated with some items moved to submenus, including Timecode, SD Card, and “Settings, which is designed to allow for quicker and easier navigation for users. Additional functional enhancements provided by the Firmware Update include: — Timecode can now be copied from the internal real-time clock. — Scene and take numbers can now be manually entered, and are embedded in the filenames and iXML headers of recordings. — Take number automatically increments each time the record button is pressed. File browsing and playback can now be organized by file or by scene and take. And the PDR now understands recordings made in SMWB Series transmitter/recorders and can list their format, length, timestamp information, etc. (Note that the PDR cannot play SMWB recordings because of the sample rate mismatch.) For greater convenience, recording segment size has been increased from approx. 200 MB to 4 GB. On the largest SD card size supported (32 GB), the maximum number of segments a single recording can have is 8. And finally, the two original file naming templates (“Clock Time” and “Sequence”) have been enhanced.

    Lectrosonics UCR211 problem!

    Hello hive mind, seems like I´m going through a rough patch with my gear lately :/ (i recently had problems with my 633 too ... ) One of my UCR211 has non responsive up/down buttons, I can´t select a new frequency and/or change any setup settings. Strangely enough it will go into freq scan mode but instead of all three i can get into it only pressing one of the up/down and the menu button.. Any ideas how to fix this? Thanks!
  9. Hi All, Trying to program an Icom R5 using ARC5 in order to be able to listen into wireless frequencies for interference etc. Does anyone have lectro block tables in csv or excel format (personally looking particularly for Block 21). Thanks RL

    Wireless upgrade Lectrosonics?

    Hey Guys, I'm considering an upgrade of my wireless kit. I started with Sennheiser G3s and now run 3 Micron Explorers which have limiters. I use the G3s for headphone sends and wireless hops. I like the look of the Lectrosonics systems but they are soooooo expensive. What would I gain by upgrading? I work on a variety of shoots including Film, TV and corporate. Would love all your thoughts.
  11. Lectrosonics is pleased to introduce SRc and SRc5P Digital Hybrid Wireless® dual-channel diversity "slot" receivers with Smart Tuning and SuperSlot™ compatibility, designed for top performance in tough RF environments, making them ideally suited for field production and other applications challenged by rough conditions.

    Ideas for equipment

    Some time around the September of last year, I was approached by someone on Facebook to work on there feature doing sound. So I asked the potential client what was his budget, he responded $10,000 US. So I had the brilliant idea of charging him the cost of my current audio recorder the Zoom F8 in exchange for my services. Having mentioned money, he immediately went on to saying that this was a shoe string budget and that no one from the crew was getting paid. After respectfully declining, I decided to sell my one and only audio recorder which was the Zoom H4N, and bought my F8 on credit, which I'm still paying to this day. I wanted know if anyone on this platform has ever received equipment as payment from their clients, in exchange for ones services. If so, what would be the best way to go about this method? Thanks!

    wireless lapel systems for budget

    I've been using Sennheiser SK5012 transmitters paired with EK 3041 receivers because they're cheap on ebay. But it's old tech. Do they sound better than cheap current generation systems? Or is this the best bang for the buck? I'm guessing the analog amp circuitry is good since these were high end models, but that better transmission quality exists with newer digital radios.I have them paired with DPA 4060 lapel mics.I've also messed around with lectrosonics MM400 transmitter and CR210D Receiver. Also deals to be had on these. Seems like its wireless tech is newer. Not sure which is better. Besides audio quality, I'm interested in compact size, long battery life, and easily swapable batteries - so I can leave them on the subjects for hours at a time - until they forget they're there and act unselfconciously. Any thoughts / experiences much appreciated.

    Problem with Lectrosonic HMA

    Hello everyone, I've ben using my lectro HMA plug-on TX (band A1) for about a year now; for cart based scripted stuff and one man band bag work as well. I've been loving it up until recently when I started getting all manner of motor boating, crackles, and ticking. I've sent the unit in for service with lectro and Trew Audio has generously set me up with a loaner in the the same band in the meantime. Unfortunately, I'm still having some of the same problems; specifically the motor boating. I tested it out this morning and it seems when I move the TX back and forth (using just a little more force than it would get being swung around on the end of a long pole) I can get some heinous crackling (like intermittent connection sounds). I do have the little washer ring intact on both units. I am using a Sanken CS-3e in a cinela blimp, and I attach the Tx directly below the blimp. I have also had similar but less intense issues using my MKH-50 as well. I have tried switching receivers/blocks as well. I am also using a PSC RF multi (serial number starting with 15). Has anyone else had trouble with this? Am I asking too much of the unit? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks for the time and space to tap into such a vast network of expertise!
  15. Hi all, So I’m finally looking to upgrade my multiple Sony UWP systems to lectrosonics, and am particularly looking at the ar dual receiver systems, mostly to save space in my small orca bag and keep my rig pretty mobile. I’d like to know the main differences/advantages of the src over the srb or even the sra. I’m aware it has trackinh front end filters similar to the 411s, as well as smart sync infrared syncing, but what about audio quality and range? I can pick up used srb systems for substatially cheaper than src. Will these still be a good purchase now that the src is here? I am mostly in the commercial and corporate market, with the occasional narrative work. I rarely need more than 2/3 wireless channels plus boom. I use a g3 as a wireless cam hop. Hope you can help! Thank you in advance.
  16. I have to pick up a used reciever for an sqmv. Two affordable options available at the moment, for the same price, are the ucr401 (fixed antenna) and an LR. On paper I see pros and cons to each. Has anyone used both that would like to speak up?

    Lectro Blocks for Australia

    I'm planning a Lectro wireless kit for use in Australia and I'm trying to work out what blocks to buy. My planned setup is talent SMQV (max 6) going to SR receivers in the bag, and then two SMQV for camera hop going to another SR on camera. The setup will be based in Canberra, but used Australia wide. So far I'm thinking about block 24 for talent and block 26 for hops, and maybe IFB on block 21. Anyone with Australia Lectro experience let me know what you think. Thanks! Chris
  18. I've read the entire manual for the UCR210D, but it doesn't seem to specify anywhere exactly what is the connector for using external power? As my intention is to build myself four cables (one for each Lectrosonics UCR210D) going from that connection at one end to D-tap male at the other end. So then I can use them together with this attached to my BP-U60 battery in my bag: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1171544-REG/indipro_tools_rk301_4_way_d_tap_splitter.html Should work well, yes?

    SMQV storage

    I'm not happy with how I store my 6 Lectro SMQV transmitters in my equipment case. Currently, I keep them side by side, three to each half in a Lectro zippered pouch. Once placed, they immediately start rattling around, not staying put. One plus for this pouch is the pocket in the upper flap that allows storage of antennas, etc. This retrieval/return is a repeat activity that needs to be bulletproof in all conditions and I'm curious how my colleagues deal with it. Thanks in advance.

    UCR411a select buttons beep

    One of my 411s seems to beep when I press the select arrows. It's a pretty faint beep that you'd only notice when pressing the buttons in a quiet room. I did a forum search and didn't find anyone else talking about this, so I was wondering if this is something others have experienced? And if so, what causes it? thanks
