    ULX-D RF Problems1
    Topic posted November 15, 2014 by exit143Novice in Wireless Workbench > All Questions & Answers Topics public
    ULX-D RF Problems

    Hey guys,

    Sorry that this is posted here... it seemed like the most appropriate place.

    This one is stumping me... I was called in to help a local university get their wireless mics situated. I've dealt with RF stuff before, but only on a much smaller level.

    They have four ULX-D Quads, one ULX-D Dual, and two ULX-D single channel mics. The quads and the dual are both on L50, the singles are on G50. The singles are using their stock antennas.

    Two of the Quads are sharing two paddle antennas. Two of the other Quads plus a Dual is sharing two other paddle antennas. All the systems are networked together.

    Here's the problem. We did a group scan, and found an open group that had 67 available frequencies and set all of the microphones to those frequencies. The RF bars came up at 4 bars like they're supposed to.

    Then the actors showed up and put the mics on, and the mics drop down to one or sometimes zero bars on the RF meter. We've changed frequencies, and the lights all just keep bouncing...

    The stage is about 60 feet from the antennas, so there's no reason why these should be dropping out like they are. We changed all the mics to transmit at 20mw, even though they shouldn't need to. It helped, but the RF keeps dropping.

    Do you guys have ANY idea what could be causing this??

    Ability to change range after adding a device

    Hi guys,

    I would find this feature interesting so that we could prepare our session and would be able to adapt it according to the gear provided by the company; instead of deleting them and redo the work (naming, zone, incl grp, colors...).

    Thanks for reading.

    Firmware Update UHF-R24

    Firmware Update UHF-R


    In order for Wireless Workbench 6 to work with UHF-R wireless receivers, the firmware of those devices must be updated to firmware version 1.166 or later. The following article will explain how to firmware upgrade UHF-R receivers.

    Related Links

    Check UR4 Current Firmware Version

    To check which version of firmware your UHF-R receiver is currently running, power-cycle the rack device, and pay attention to the front panel display as it boots up. The installed version of firmware will be displayed in the lower right-hand corner of each display. If the version is 1.166 or later, your receiver is compatible to operate with Wireless Workbench 6.

    Updating Firmware

    If your receivers are on a version of firmware earlier than 1.166, they will need to be updated in order to be discovered and controlled by Wireless Workbench 6.

    In order to upgrade the firmware for UHF-R receivers, you can now use the Shure Update Utility (v2.0.2 or later). Follow the steps listed out below to complete the firmware upgrade.


    1. If you do not have the Shure Update Utility, you can download it here.

    2. Power on your UHF-R receivers. Connect your network of receivers to your computer, and launch the Shure Update Utility.

    Note: UHF-R receivers will not appear as online devices within Wireless Workbench while the Shure Update Utility is running.  Once the Shure Update Utility is closed, the UHF-R devices will reappear as online devices in Wireless Workbench 6.

    3. Select "Check for Updates".

    4. Download any available updates.

    5. Once the downloads have completed, select the "Update Devices" tab and ensure that your UHF-R receivers are discovered.

    6. For each UHF-R receiver to be updated, select the checkbox on the far right of it's row, and then select the desired version to install in the "Version to Install" column.

    7. To begin the firmware update, select "Send Updates".

    Do not power off or disconnect your device from the network while the firmware update is in process.

    8. Once the update has been sent, your device will reboot.  The Shure Update Utility will wait for the receivers to be rediscovered and verify that the sent firmware was properly installed.



    The UHF-R transmitters were designed to be forwards compatible with newer versions of UHF-R receiver firmware. It will likely not be necessary to upgrade the firmware of your UHF-R transmitters. NOTE: this implies that differing firmware versions between UHF-R transmitters and receivers is an acceptable mis-match of firmware versioning.

    If you have any questions, please contact Shure Service and Repairs.

    MXW linking one mic to two different APTs
    Topic posted November 28, 2016 by mihau89Beginner in Microflex Wireless > All Questions & Answers Topics public
    MXW linking one mic to two different APTs

    Hi all!

    I would like to know how to configure the MXW microphones to link one of them to two different APTs. This kind of solution will be used to extend the coverage of the MXW system, and I would like to let the speaker roam freely between APTs. Can I link the microphone through NCS to cone APT and later do the same thing with another APT? 

    Just to be clear, I don't want to make a spare microphone. I need one mic to be connected with two APTs.
