      Hi,

      I’m new here and I’m in urgent need of some help for my GL2 since I have a shoot first thing tomorrow.

      I recently purchased a lavelier system and I hooked up it to the GL2. Everything worked fine except for the fact that the built in mic on the GL2 is picking up audio instead of the lavalier. I tried messing around with the settings/reading the manuals but it’s not working. I’m using a 1/8 cable to the AV in on the GL2 from a 1/8 coming from the out unbalanced on the receiver.

      This is a Samson UHF Series One I’m using by the way. Any assistance ASAP would be VERY appreciated.

      Thanks πŸ˜•

      I read through the manual the other day and don’t recall it mentioning any details about using an external mic either. Did you try a different cable? Are you sure your connection is good?
