Not sure on the firmware version of my Relay G30

Recommended Posts

Some weeks ago, maybe a month ago, I aquired a Relay G30 set. Since I live in Argentina, I'm not quite sure if they are just out of the oven. Since I have an important gig this Sunday, and I bought the G30 specially for this type of gigs and I wanted to know the firmware version, so I could use it in RF1 mode (I've read it's safer). I made the 1-6 x3 switch change but I've only got a 1 green blink response, which is no different than what I get when the switch reaches to 6 or 1 in this process. I've made this several times, with the receiver turned on and off as well. If I should trust the results, it seems my G30 has firmware version 1.00, but I'm not quite sure.

Is there any other way to check the firmware version? So far at home and at rehearsals it has been working excellent, and I wouldn't want to change to RF2 accidentally so I haven't followed the RF change process. I also check for Wi-Fi routers with my smartphone to select the channel I'm going to use to avoid interference, according to the chart given in the Knowledge Base.

If you can't get a reed out of the firmware version your unit is running v1.x and will only run in RF1 mode.

 

A better way to check for possible interference with a G30 is to turn on the receiver only and note the number of red LEDs you get in the RF ladder while switching channels.  You will never get completely free channels but the ones that have the fewest red LEDs lit up will probably work the best.  But even though you get red LEDs on that does NOT mean that the system will not work.  It just means it will have shorter range.

Luckily I've always found 3 green bars most of the time at rehearsals or in my place. I've checked distance (without a guitar plugged) and it's fair, depending on the channel and the intensity of Wi-Fi channels that are supposed to interfere on it. When I have a guitar plugged, I can't check if there are red LEDs when I'm playing since the transmitter is in the belt, on my back. But according to the receiver, the signal is good, and so far it's been at rehearsals or at home. The stage I'm performing on this Sunday is fairly large, not as big as in stadium concerts but definitely not as small as in bars/clubs. I'm not planning to run all over the place, and I'm the main singer of my band, but I want to move to the center, near the crowd, the side or the back without worrying about rolling the cable or tripping with it.

I'm confident about it and I'll scan which Wi-Fi channels have more interference before the gig so I set up the G30 channel according to the channels chart specified in the Knowledge Base.

You have to check for the red bars with the transmitter turned off.

Saw that last night in the troubleshooting guide. Did that and luckily I got no red bars, even if my place is surrounded by wireless routers :)
