G70 Receiver USB port non functional
pir8matt posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessHi, I have a G70 receiver that I had stopped using a couple years back because of dropout issues. I recently picked up a couple of G75's that I use for backline stuff, and they also had dropout issues, but started working acceptably once I did the most recent firmware updates. So I circled back to the G70 unit, hoping I could update it as well and get some better performance out of it, but when I attached the USB cable to it, the updater wouldn't see it. I noticed that the cable felt kind of loose, so I opened the unit up and can see that the micro USB connector has largely detached itself from the PCB inside (see photo). Is this repairable? Will Line6 repair these or does anyone know of an aftermarket solution to have this repaired? The unit is basically non-updatable without this port. I did update the transmitter but I suspect both would need to be updated to see better performance.
Relay G70/75 FAQ
Guest posted a article in Relay G70/G75Q: How does the G70/75 system work with other Line 6 Wireless? Even with RF2/RF3 co-habitability, that does not necessarily mean that every channel will work in the same environment. Check out the chart below to see what channels are available when using our other Relay products. Note: The G70/75 will only work in the same environment as current RF2 wireless systems. Those relay systems with older firmware (v1.0) limited to using RF 1 will not work. Q: What are the dimensions of the receivers? G70 receiver Height 2.06" Width 5.53" Length 4.06" G75 receiver Height 2.63" Width 6.22" Length 4.65" Q: Are all Line 6 Wireless receivers and transmitters interchangable with the G70/75? A: No, Only G70/75 receiver work with the TB516G transmitter Q: How is the Relay G70/75 receiver powered? A: The receiver is powered by the supplied micro USB power supply, or an optional DC-1g Q: What are the frequencies for the cable tone? Q: How do I update the firmware for my G70/75? Check out the instructions here! Q: My Windows system won't update the G70/75 When attempting to update the TBP516G transmitter using Windows 7, some users have reported that the transmitter either does not establish a connection via USB, or loses the connection during the update. It is worth noting that Windows supplies the driver for the Relay G70/G75 transmitter. There are two scenarios where the transmitter is not recognized by the updater app after connecting via USB: the updater is launched before the transmitter drivers have finished installing. This may occur more often on slower computers, computers that already have several open windows or processes, or with machines that have a slower internet connection. the "Driver not successfully installed" message appears. In this case, click "Change settings" then choose "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)" in the Device Installation Settings dialogue box, then select "Save Changes". In the event the "Driver not installed" message box is not present, you can navigate to Device Installation Settings using the following steps: Click Start, type 'devices and printers' in the search box, and then click Devices and Printers. Under Devices, right-click the icon for the computer, and then click Device installation settings. Choose "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)" and select "Save Changes" button. After changing this setting, remove the USB cable, then insert it again so that Windows can detect the transmitter and install the driver for it. It is possible to see the transmitter update fail shortly after it starts. This can occur if one of the transmitter drivers has not finished installing before you initiate an update. In this case, the updater will typically display that the firmware version is unknown. The workaround here is to wait until the driver completes installation, or disconnect the USB cable, reconnect it, then start the update again.
How To Update Relay G70/75 transmitter and receiver
Guest posted a article in Relay G70/G75This update can be performed with either a PC (on Windows 7 or Windows 8) or with a Mac (on OS X Mountain Lion, Mavericks, or Yosemite). A micro-USB cable (included with G70) is necessary to connect the device to be updated to the computer. Please note that a Line 6 account and password will also be required, in order to download the Updater app and to sign into the Updater app when launched. If you do not already have an account, you can create one at https://line6.com/login.html. Part 1: Installing the Line 6 Updater app: Visit line6.com and sign in using the appropriate account.

Relay G70 Transmitter Paint
Pelletier94 posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessHello all, A common problem with the Relay G70 unit that many Line 6'ers seem to be experiencing involves the belt clip and the fact that it snaps off so easily. As some have noted, when the clip snaps off it scuffs the transmitter. I'm looking to sell my unit but I'd like to paint the scratches the broken clip left before selling it off. I'm wondering how I should go about this. How does Line 6 paint their transmitters? What do they use? What might you used, or what have you done to remedy this problem? Thanks for your consideration, Luke
G70 Update Error
jbmakesnoise posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessG70 will not update. Progress bar never gets beyond 80%, sometimes it times out with an error at 0% and everything in between. "Firmware Update Failed An error has ocurred. Please try again." Done this probably 50 times, downloaded the update locally and tried updating from there. No luck, no help. Any ideas?
Running multiple G70s
drdef posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessI had great luck with the G70. Love the quarter inch connecters, love the ease of use and internal antenna. I ran multiple transmitters with no issues. Now, however, we are running 5 different G70 receivers and a total of 9 transmitters. Any advice on frequency separation? Anyone else doing something so dramatic? We have had very occasional dropout issues. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated.
Has the G10 USB port been improved?
pgrimmer posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessHi all, I recently bought a G10 system and have so far used it for a couple of gigs and a few rehearsals and it has been flawless, but reading the various forums I am concerned about the USB connection lasting. I play in a band which practices once a week and gigs 2 -3 times a month. I only really wanted a wireless system to free the stage of cables, I'm not planning on running into the audience, so the G10 looked ideal. Most of the posts I've seen about the dodgy USB connection seem to be from last year, so I was wondering whether this has been improved? I've been looking at alternatives but the G30 seems to have issues with the battery door and clip and the G50 or G70 seem overkill for what I need. My local music store has the G70 at a really good price at the moment (cheaper than the G50), so I'm wondering whether to bite the bullet and exchange the G10 for this, even though I will never use most of the features, just so that I know that it will be road worthy. Any advice will be really appreciated.
Drivers and Firmware for G70 and Transmitter
IanSimmons posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessHi, I have a new G70 and transmitter. I see that there are firmware updates available and even advised, but I can see no way of doing this. The units aren't recognised by Windows, it doesn't see any drivers; and the method I normally use for updating Line 6 gear (Pod HD, for example), the Line 6 Monkey, doesn't seem to know about this either. So: 1. Are there drivers for the transmitter (TB516G) / receiver (G70)? 2. If so, how do update the firmware? Thanks in advance! Ian

Relay G70 recall?
munger77 posted a topic in Relay Digital WirelessDear Line 6, Is there a recall on G70 relay units? I bought mine new several months ago and it does not hold a signal for more than 5 seconds, despite updating firmware, cables and reading every single post on the forums. Let me know, thanks very much.
Using G70/75 with other Line 6 wireless (RF Co-habitability)
Guest posted a article in Relay G70/G75Even with RF2/ RF3 co-habitability - that does not necessarily mean that every channel will work in the same environment. Check out this chart as to what channels are available when using our other Relay products. Note: The G70/75 will ONLY work in the same environment as current RF2 wireless systems. Those Relay systems with older firmware (v1.0) will not work in the same environment unless the G50 is updated to firmware 2.0 or better.
