Mic in via RCA jacks not working...

How do I set my DVX100B to use a Wireless Mic? -- it uses a regular RCA/phono type connection. Normally, I'd use an XLR mic, but the interviewer wants to use the wireless lapel instead...

No matter which switches I flip, turn on or off, it won't work. Does the DVX100b accept line-in, or is that strictly for the VCR mode?

(yes, I checked to make sure the mic was working :-) )

Ted,
In camera mode you have to plug the mic into one of the XLR inputs. It sounds like you need an adapter from the mic plug to XLR. The DVX does accept line in through the XLR inputs.

A wireless receiver that uses consumer lines levels on RCA for its output ???? That's really unusual, most are mic-level to either a mini jack or XLR. What make and model of wireless are you using?
