Hi

 

I have a G30 system with a TBP06 belt pack. I bought it for 6 months ago and inside the box it has a paper that says my system is enabled with rf2 and I should take a look in the manual to see how to change til rf1.

 

In my band the bass player use an older g30 and that is rf1. So I need to change to rf1.

 

When I follow the manual on the web page it does not work.

When I start up the device I don't get any blinks from the blue light. I get a purple color that goes directly over to a solid blue color. Not blinking what so ever.  The "audio" light goes from yellow to two small green blinks.

 

What is the problem? Why can't I change to rf1? What does startup lights mean?

 

I really need rf1 since i experienced a lot of dropouts with my system when I play with my bass blayer with a rf1 unit.

The fact that it's not blinking when you turn it on and that you can't switch it would seem to suggest you don't have v2 firmware installed.

Will your transmitter lock up with your bassist's receiver?

This seems like a good explanation. The strange thing is the statement inside the box that clearly says that this is a RF2 device.

 

Is it so that Line6 can ship an item that they say is RF2 an it is actually not?
 
If my device is RF1, what can cause the dropouts in the sound?

At this point it is all speculation. You need to check it. It may have been a return to a dealer or accidentally switched there.

Have you gone through the troubleshooting document? Does it work ok when not in the presence of another Relay unit? Did it work before and this is a new problem?

I just read the differencies between RF1 and RF2. In my band we have two G30, and mine is brand new, and my counter guitarist has approx. 2 years old.

My question, approximately until when You delivered RF1 G30s to EU market?

At the moment both is working fine paralell, I dont realized any interference. Does this mean that both we have RF2? What could be exactly the problem if we have RF1 and RF2 in one time? What we should listen for?

 

(in general, it is very strange that I need a highend transmitter to see the firmware version, which I dont have)

 

Thanks Line6 for the answer,

Two years old is definitely running in RF1 mode so if you have no interference and you cannot make the switch you logically also must have RF1 mode running.

 

Anyone running a mix of both modes will likely have very unreliable performance with lots of dropouts.  All versions of transmitters will display the mode they are running in, but what you can see will depend on what version of firmware you have installed.

Thanks for feedback. Its really interesting, we also made a gig without any problem. But I will bring both transmitter to the dealer to check firmware and RF mode.
