Social Media WireLists45 300pxWe recently received a few calls in Service from users confused about the IR-Sync function with our receivers, so we put together this list as both a refresher and a guide.



  1. Select your Frequency Step size on your receiver by navigating to Step Size and selecting either 100 kHz or 25 kHz to match the transmitter you are using. 25 kHz is now the standard for Lectrosonics systems, with the exception of the IFBR1A, which is 100 kHz and does not have an IR Sync function. Adjustments of 25 kHz increments between the two may be needed for other manufacturers or when frequency coordination requires it. The step size must match on both your transmitter and your receiver.
  2. 

Select your receiver Compatibility Mode. Navigate to Compat Mode, using the Up and Down arrows to scroll through the choices. When the desired mode appears in the screen, press MENU/ SEL or BACK to select the mode and return to the previous menu. Press BACK to return to the Main Window.
