Title: ADX1 WWB6 ShowLink Spectrum Manager issue
Post by: Mike Kahrs on July 12, 2019, 03:38:19 pm
Had an interesting problem last night.  The AXT600 (Spectrum Manager) pushed out, via Showlink, a new frequency to the ADX1 belt pack.  Alas, it didn't tell the receiver, and the transmitter was suddenly transmitting on a new, un-monitored frequency.  I could look at the receiver and see the battery slowly losing charge, and all the other telemetry items that Showlink carries, but there was no RF activity.

I have: six AD4Q receivers, 22 ADX belt packs and handhelds, two 610 Showlink Tx/Rx units, a Spectrum Manager, chargers, etc., and a robust wired network, using Dante for monitoring on a mixer with a Dante card, and sending analog outputs to the split head.

I "zeroed" everything, put all the ADX1 in slot 1, all the ADX2 in slot 2, named the ADX1 & 2 with unique "names" so I could see which 610 was controlling which Tx, and synced everything manually (Tx to Rx via IR).  Thankfully, I ran the timeline on all channels.  The timeline right sidebar shows a frequency change at the precise time the audio dropped.

Opinions?  Thanks.

were you able to duplicate the failure?
