Anyone else having wireless connection issues?
by MontyM on 2013-03-20 18:41:09

I work for a church and outfitted them with L6 Relay G50 and G90 systems.  About 8 accross multiple campuses. At all but one campus, I get bad interference on the every system.

The sympton - Everything's running great, then there will be a systematic "pop" that occurs about every 30-45 seconds.  I've noticed that for that split second, the receiver looses signal.  I'm guessing there's something that's overpowering receivers and causing them to loose sync.  A couple of the units sometimes take up to 2 seconds to recover, and they do it in the form of a frequency sweep, with the lows coming back first.  We used to have a similar problem, and when I did the update, it seemed to correct most of the units, but now the issue is coming back.

Any ideas?

Can I get a few answers that might help narrow it down?

Which mode are you running in?

Are you positive that all units are running on that mode?

Does this problem happen in both RF modes?

Are you using the factory power supplies on the G50 units?

Are you also using any XDV wireless mics?

What are you pluggin the receivers into?  XLR or 1/4" on the G90's

Strong interference could cause the receives to lose sync but interference should not be causing pops.  2 seconds would be normal if the receiver loses sync, but I've never experienced the frequency sweep as you describe it.  I can't imagine how that happens that wouldn't be hardware related.

All stock PSU's.

Tried both high and low rf power modes, same effect.

One environment is using a Relay G50 on actoustic with an XDV system for vocals.

G90s going xlr into a couple LS9s.

Everything else acoustic is going via Radial DI's into Yamaha LS9's, Presonus StudioLives, a Yamaha M7CL, and a Digico SD8.  Electrics are going into guitar amps or modelers, then mic'd to the FOH.

Sorry ... the RF modes I'm refering to are the RF1/RF2 modes and not the power levels.  What firmware version are you running (hold in both buttons on powerup)

I also need to know what mode the XDV is running in.  They MUST all be in the same mode or there will be problems.

I didn't know they had that feature, but after reading the support doc @ http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2645">http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2645">http://line6.com/support/docs/DOC-2645 , it seems to make since.  I had updated to 2.02 a few months back, but I'll check the RF mode this weekend and get back with you. 

Thanks for your help with this.

When you run in RF2 mode (which is the way it defaults after upgrading it) you must scan and assign it to a clear channel.  In RF1 mode it doesn't need a clear channel.  I'd try switching it to RF1 mode on the transmitter ... the receiver will automatically follow it.

Whichever way you do it all systems MUST be in the same mode.  If not you will keep having these problems
