Can a Lectro R1A UHF IFB Receiver "listen in" on a SMQV to SRC camera hop?

Hello,

 I am wondering if the Lectrosonics R1A UHF IFB receivers can receive the same signal that may be sent from a SMQV transmitter to a SRc receiver "digital hybrid" wireless camera hop?

 

 It seems as if using this type of configuration, if it is possible, may on some occasions eliminate the need for one more transmitter cluttering up bandwidth.

 

 Thank you.

If you set the SMQV to IFB mode you can receive the signal but otherwise no. And IFB mode isn't as good as digital hybrid mode so you wouldn't want to use that to record your lav tracks through the SRc, but if they are just for hops then you can set the SRc to IFB mode as well as the SMQV and use all three

You have to decide whether the quality of an IFB signal is is sufficient for camera in that instance. For me, since scratch/reference is the norm, I do this fairly often either by strapping an R1a to camera or renting a buddy's 411. Very convenient to only need 1x transmitter in the bag.

Thanks for that link Peter.    The economic argument against a 400 mode R1 makes sense, although as a documentary recordist who only needs one unit for the director and maybe one for a field producer- I probably WOULD pay $1100 for a single IFB receiver channel, if it meant that I could leave the comteks at home.

M2R is awesome however the antenna's are a deal breaker for me. 

I use my R1a to feed the judges inductive neckloops and earpieces on my regular show. They're tricky enough to hide sometimes even without antenna's. 

 

Even for field producer IFB, antenna's are going to get in the way. 

 

I'm pretty sure Lectro could make a 400 mode ifb that also could be switched to other existing  modes, LCD screen, lots of presets, IR with app to program etc as per my other post in other thread, WITHOUT an external antenna. 

 

I'd buy a bunch, for sure.
