  1. My hearing lost was compensated with 2 HA, but with one it was only a directional finder. Over the years it deteriorated to NR." When I went to get my CI, they said .. can't do government rules.. well I can't take no for an answer, so I was told look elsewhere, which I did and they said.. NO PROBLEM... hmmmm same government 2 answers. Took my trusty letter to my first CI center and said.. OH YES YOU CAN.... Now my directional ear finder is now a working hearing ear and it is amazing to have someone on my "bad" side and be able to listen to what they are saying to me. This has truly made me respect sound at a totally different level.
  2. @mary beth thanks... you validated my findings.
  3. Did more testing.... I find the clarity with the Roger Pen is way better than without the Roger Pen. Am I assuming with out the Roger Pen the distance from the TV speakers could be the factor? OR is the Roger Pen picking up more frequencies to give me better clarity.?
  4. @mary beth I got all the programs but I did not think they work when you are using the Roger Pen
  5. @mary beth I can go all day with just the CI and have not issues. What I do find with only the CI, when it gets to be a noisy environment, the voices tense to jumble up. I do not what my HA to be connected to the roger pen and I really don't want to have my CI connected to the roger pen (as per my TV issues thread) So right not it like faking a surround sound environment until I find out what going on with my CI.
  6. I have been experimenting with my surround sound system. What I do I put the volume down to the level so that the CI is my primary listener. The CI is connect with the roger pen that is directly connected to the source (stereo system). The HA listens to the surround sound. In the beginning of this process, the CI is in control of the sound and all is good. About 30 minutes or so, I start getting crosstalk. the talking on my CI becomes lost and I get part of the conversation. The HA becomes the Primary hearing device. Is my CI side still trying to learn to hear, or is there something else going on?
  7. I have hdmi output which is for the TV and I have a toslink output (optical cable) out. The SCART will not work on my TV. .
  8. is there a way to connect the Roger Pen to a Receiver, not using the headphone cable or the AV cable. I hoping there is another 3rd party device to use to get the Roger Pen connect to the Receiver. I can not connect it to the TV, because the Receiver is the master of the sound. I have an Onkyo HT-R690 receiver. I have a Cable Box that is my source for watching TV. It connects to the Receiver. I am using the AV cable in the Cable Box to connect the Roger Pen but I would like to get it to work with the Receiver.
  9. @mary beth yes I am.. and I have contacted my audio on it as well... let's hope that is my issue
  10. @mary beth when I use the Roger Pen the cover I have is the Sonnet FM battery cover. Does that make a diff?
  11. @mary beth Just throwing this out... could the cover on my battery be the problem child?
  12. @mary beth The rechargeable works with my Sonnet.. I get about 8 hrs with them... I don't used them a lot. I just thought when I am at home use the rechargeable with the Roger Pen instead of the standard battery. Roger Pen technology eats battery life fast. Wireless technology in general eats battery life. When I not using the Roger Pen I would get 3 days on the standard battery but as soon as I started playing with the Roger Pen... bam.. maybe 2 days... so use rechargeable to save on using standard. Anyway... I got one of the rechargeable to connect... I had to be on top of the Roger Pen to get it connected. Will keep testing this out more to see what else it can't do.
