We have XD-V70 handhelds and lapels which have all been updated with latest firmware.   We are still having huge problems whilst working in hotels that have very broad spectrum wifi.   We are finding that even with the aerials less than 10m from the handhelds or lapels we are experiencing huge dropouts on the signal.   I was hoping that the fact these mics are supposed to lock to the receivers we would be able to avoid room wifi problems.   Any one any ideas?

When you install the new firmware the units default to RF2 mode.  When in RF2 mode you MUST scan for open channels (which are probably few in a hotel situation).  Switch them back to RF1 mode and they should work better in your situation.

 

The systems do "lock" to the transmitters, but that means that they do not respond to interference by producing any audio artifacts.  Enough interference will cause them to lose range which could also be the problem.  If that is your case then you will need to switch to directional antennas.

Thanks for the response......we updated them to see whether they would work better in RF2 mode.   How do we switch back to RF1?   Will directional antennas help? 

 

At the moment we are using them with the P360 but have found today that we are better off using the rubber ducky aerial located less than a few metres away from where the transmitters are being used. 

 

We are finding more and more that the hotel wifi systems are causing enough interference that the range is really down to a few metres though.

All the info you could ever need about RF1 and 2 here. Only getting a few meters of range is a little concerning though. Presumably you're using high power mode?

We are using in Hi Power mode and we have tried the rubber whip and the P360 antenna but are still having huge problems.   Last night at an event we were lucky to get 12ft Range. With the proliferation of wifi in venues now we are starting to find that these mics are unusable as they drop out so much and this is creating huge amounts of stress in a live sound situation.

Please confirm that you have indeed switched the transmitters to run inRF1 mode
