      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.

      instead of going into the AV jack on the back, use either the mic (green input I belive) input on the side or buy the xlr hot shoe adapter. Hope that is a start.
