What's all the fuss about? Industry insiders point to 2009 as the year that analog wireless ceases to operate reliably. Digital television (DTV) broadcasts are mandated to take the airwaves and leave the old analog technology behind. How might this affect me? Many users of today's analog wireless systems are unaware of the impending UHF spectrum changes mandated by the FCC. Furthermore, the FCC is considering potential unlicensed devices and services that would operate in the “White Spaces” (empty TV channels that vary widely from city to city). It remains to be seen what the actual impact of these new sources of interference will have on today’s analog wireless systems as these devices were not made to operate in unprotected airspace. The Line 6 Solution Line 6 Digital Wireless systems are all 2009 Compliant meaning that they will continue to operate reliably for many years to come free from the concerns of interference from DTV and others. This is made possible due to proprietary digital RF technology that broadcasts at 900 MHz while utilizing a unique digital key to lock out all other sources of interference. Will Line 6 digital wireless systems work outside of the U.S.? Your only limitation in using our systems is whether or not it is legal to broadcast in the 900 MHz range (specifically, 902-928 MHz). Each country has its own regulations and ways of enforcement. You should research the broadcast laws in the countries you tour in. For example, US and Australian X2 systems both transmit in the 900 MHz range. However, the US versions use 902-928 MHz and Australian versions use 915-928 MHz. You cannot mix US and Australian components. Australian systems can be used legally in the US but not the other way around. The only system available for Australia is the XDS95. There is no dual-frequency anti-jamming interference protection on this system. XDS-PLUS and XDR95 systems are not sold or configured for Australian operation. When I turn on my XDR95 or XDSPlus transmitter and receiver, the RF light comes on as soon as they are on the same channel, even before I start playing. Is this normal? As soon as your transmitter is turned on, it begins broadcasting RF (radio frequency) and data to the receiver. If you want to check for unwanted RF or look for a clean channel, leave the transmitter off while scanning the channels. Can I run two transmitters (1 instrument and 1 mic) through one Line 6 digital wireless receiver? If you wish to use two transmitters at the same time (as in simultaneous operation), you will need one receiver for each transmitter, each set to different channels. In fact, you can use up to 5 transmitters and 5 receivers set to different channels operating at the same time. You can use up to five transmitters set to different channels with the same receiver, but they cannot operate at the same time. If two or more LINE 6 digital wireless transmitters are set to the same channel, you will experience dropouts and interference. Will I have problems with noise when switching between multiple transmitters? When operating multiple transmitters, it’s best to put them all on the same channel. Power up only the unit you are currently using. When you make an instrument change, simply turn the one you have been using 'off', then turn the one you are about to use 'on', making sure to keep the same channel selected. The receiver will auto- mute when there is no transmitter 'on', so it will not create any noise while making the switch. Will my XDR transmitter work with my XDS receiver? Yes, press and hold the Channel / Mode button while powering up the XDT4 transmitter and it will change to XDS mode. Will my XDS95 transmitter work with my XDR95 or XDSPlus system? Yes, the XDS (pedal) transmitter is compatible with the XDR (rack) receiver, but you will not gain the benefits of a full XDR95 rack system. It will perform more like an XDS95 pedal system. You may gain some range depending on conditions, but you will not enable the Q-diversityPLUS (anti-jam) technology. Please refer to your manual for how to change modes so your XDR receiver will recognize the XDS signal.
I have the P180 AND the P360 paddles for my XD-V75 systems. I ALREADY KNOW that I can use either set of paddles with the XD-V75 AND I can even use the XD-AD8 to use ONE set of paddles for up to 8 XD-V75 systems. What I am asking about is COMBINING both sets of paddles to 2 XD-V75 (rackmounted side-by-side in my rig). I KNOW (and already have configured) the 2 XD-V75s can share the antenna inputs. I am looking for a 2.4Ghz antenna combiner with BNC connectors, so I can use all 4 paddles together. The P180s for on stage and the P360s for audience coverage. Has anyone tried this? Issues with doing this? Thank you!
We use a Behringer XR18 mixer and BandHelper, both of which use tablets/phones & wifi extensively. Some of these are 2.4HGz units. Can anyone tell me if a G10 is likely to wipe out my 2.4 tablet (or more than that) at about 3 feet away, with the router about 20 feet away and everything else in between? I realise that the G10 won't be joining the network but that could be worse because the router can't tell it to shut up. Also, the only thing ON a network which would be streaming data would normally be the router, not some 'rogue' other device in the room. Thanks
Parts Q: My X2 cable is lost/damaged. Where can I purchase a replacement? Line 6 Store: X2 Replacement Cable Q: I lost/broke an antenna on my X2 wireless receiver. How can I get a replacement? A:The X2 series uses a 900 mhz, Â½ wave-BNC antenna. These antenna can be purchased from numerous audio-video or musical instrument retailers. Q: Why is my signal occasionally cutting out? A: Please check to see that your locking cable connector is screwed in tightly to the input jack on the transmitter. If not, this can cause your unit to either not get audio at all or cause the signal to cut in and out. Please see our updated manual on this website for a detailed diagram of the proper connection process. Troubleshooting The XDR4 rackmount receiver has an â€œRFâ€ LED indicator on the front panel. With all transmitters powered â€œOFFâ€, scroll through the 5 channels on the receiver while viewing the â€œRFâ€ LED. If this LED remains dark, then you can conclude that there is no undesired RF at your current location. If it lights RED, then there is RF on that channel. This typically does not lead to the conclusion that you cannot operate on that channel. It does indicate that there is RF present and that the range might be limited on that channel. â€œDrop outsâ€ are often the cause of a bad audio connection. This can happen when the input jack is not fastened securely or when the input cable has broken down at the connector. You can visually confirm a solid â€œdigital linkâ€ even without an audio input by powering on only one transmitter and receiver and monitor the 4 green â€œRECEIVERâ€ LEDs on the XDR4 rackmount receiver. As long as one single green LED stays lit, then you have a solid link. I would confidently say that the system is working well if all 4 LEDs stay lit no matter where you go out to at least 100â€™ with little or no â€œdancingâ€. When they start to consistently dance you are approaching the outer edge of the operating range. This test is best performed with two people. Q: Power is on but no signal or there is an intermittent signal with sound cutting out with the XDS95, XDR95 or XDSPlus transmitter A: How far away from each other are the transmitter and receiver? You may simply just need to return to operational range. If the issue persists, you will need to replace the XC1 cable. Q: Power is on but no signal is getting to XDR95, XDS95, or XDSPlus Receiver. A: Remember to set the receiver to the correct mode and to set both the transmitter and receiver to the same channel. If you continue to have issues, replace the XC1 cable. Q: My XDS95 receiver / transmitter shuts down shortly after powering up A: If you are using batteries, try using a new set of batteries. If you are using rechargeable batteries, try a fresh set of alkaline batteries. If these issues persist, the XDS95 needs to be serviced. Q: My transmitter suddenly started producing a distorted broken up signal A: Replacing the XC1 cable would be the first thing to try, but if that does not fix the issue, the transmitter must be serviced for repair. Q: I have a buzzing noise on all channels of my receiver. A: First, make sure that the receiver is getting the proper amount of power from a compatible power supply, especially if the power is being shared with other devices. If you have active electronics on your guitar, make sure that the batteries in the guitar are fresh and power the guitar. If not, replace the batteries. Check your guitar jack to see if it is loose or shorting out and fix the jack as needed. Lastly, please remove/turn off any sources of magnetism (such as a computer monitor) that is close to the transmitter as this could be producing the noise in the signal. Q: I can only go 25 to 30 ft with my XDS95 before it drops out? A: If there is another transmitter on and set to the same channel nearby, then you would need to change the channel on the second transmitter. If there is another source of RF between your transmitter and the receiver, then you would need to move the source of RF. As a last resort, you can open up the back of your receiver and you should see 2 thick black wires soldered onto the antennas. If these wires are not soldered properly, the receiver needs to be serviced for repair. The following is a list of symptoms in which your Digital Wireless device must be serviced for repair: Symptom: I hear a "click" every once in a while when my XDS95 system is on but I am not playing? Symptom: One of the green receiving section lights does not come on even when the XDR95 transmitter is right next to the receiver. Symptom: When I power up my unit, all the lights stay on (Red or Blue) and then I cannot turn the unit off. Symptom: My XDT1/XDT4 transmitter burns up a fresh battery in 1 hour. Symptom: My XDS95 receiver does not power up with a 9v battery but it will power up on a power cord adapter. Symptom: My X2 transmitter does not power up with a 9v battery.
