  1. Tracking backup

    nope, I see nothing... :-)
  2. Tracking backup

    Hello again... still on the network setup here, with projectors working, but no tracking backup... I may be missing something in terms of setting up a tracking backup, but... here is where I’m at: I can see the laptop and flx via each other on network settings without issues. I can use either the flx as a desk or separately the laptop with dongle as a desk. I just can’t get either to recognise the other as a master, even with manual IP entry when they are set to backup. Do you have guide for setting this up? Had a quick look, but haven’t found anything yet. Thanks. Phil.
  3. Tracking backup

    and crashing the FLX... Puzzling... after flx crash, laptop will take over. Restart the flx and then get a load with error code 00010004. But it does load... It asks to take control and laptop recognises its back, with option to return to tracking. Taking both options on laptop and flx - but Flx crashes and hangs after clicking take control. Laptop keeps returning on the same question. they both go through synchronising, and FLX says loading show but never pulls through. Process just repeats. Phantom zeros just crashed as well. restaretd flx and recorded some cues. Turned on laptop and restarted phantom zeros. It loaded show to say file 2open failed error code 00020001 - but then on to load compelted ok. then let’s me take the show file form the master ok and sits as tracking backup. FLX, goes down, but not the same show on laptop Restarted the 2, both on - pressed setup on FLX to look at network devices and check settings and it’s now stuck with backup synchronisation please wait box - it’s dead - which is what killed it earlier on. I shutdown the laptop and he FLX unfroze... This could be going better... just looked at artnet IP on laptop which says it’s transmitting on

    It appears to be working like this, but very clunky... problems with taking control and synchronising
  5. Tracking backup

    I get this message after pressing setup to leave setup after setting laptop as backup... master ip backup ip subnet status disconnected (retry in 4/3/2/1 second) 10:54:28 ( whatever time it is...) then a box: take control in (in 4/3/2/1 second) - if I click this box it makes no difference to anythign after this, all showing up in network devices. Appearing as FLX with correct IP addresses on both network devices screens. Ticked green, OK along with the artnet node.

  8. Panasonic Projector - artnet

    Just an update... I have it working, all stable now. but... the light output and shutter worked perfectly. The rest, so...so... not really what to be expected. For now I have disabled all the features on the projector and just left the fixture profile as is. More work needed I think. now I’m off to post about why I can’t get a laptop with unlock dongle to work as backup...
  9. Hi, I think this is the best place for this question...? Just bought a Panasonic Projector which is controllable via artnet - 12 channels of various attributes. Panasonic PT-DW750. But, having sorted a profile and also tried it the most simple way - I can not get any control of it. Has anyone else managed to get a projector working via artnet? Especially when there is no fixture profile already? Thinking I may need to post up projector network settings etc... Etc.. to help out? Thanks. Phil.
  10. Panasonic Projector - artnet

    Ok... it just seems to have started working now... I ended up switching to universe 2 on projector and then patched to 3 on the desk now it will work however I switch between them. I can now see it in network devices. This came up before I had it working, briefly, but it went away... now it all seems to be working and I have no idea why... ha!
  11. Panasonic Projector - artnet

    In network devices I can just see the art net node Nothing else, and with the universe change to 0 it is the same, no control... 🤔 puzzling
  12. Panasonic Projector - artnet

    So... Trying to attach pics, but they are a bit big... using wirelesse router to be able see devices now - all devices seen as expected. is router .2 is Laptop Wirless .3 is ArtNet DMX Node (working, controlling generics) .4 is FLX Console .100 is projector - in its network setup: dhcp is off is is subnet mask is set to default gateway to arnet enabled as manual with channel setup user (with 12 set as shutter) net set as 0 sub net set as 0 universe set as 1 start address as 450 the fixture patch matches universe 1 with dmx address set at 450 i did realise this morning about the default on fixture profile for light output - so will change that at some point any thoughts?

  14. iPad Remote App

    If you need more people on the test I'll join... :-) iPads have been struggling to connect to desk even though the app (on several iPads) recognises desk with IP address all correct and so on

    hi - running and communication seems good on wireless network, but can't get any device to see the desk - remote is enabled... Even reinstalled the app and no luck - any ideas? Thanks. Phil.

  18. Orb xf iPad remote fail

  19. Crash and Restart Problem

    Hi, ORB XF crashed when clicking back in patch help screen. When restarted, using cue 0 results in no 0 intensity value appearing under channel, just blank. This is the same during cue stack playback. Has something just changed to hide this?
  20. Crash and Restart Problem

    Makes sense I was in non-tracking when it crashed (and use in non-tracking all the time) The '0' values dissapeared for every cue that was there. I solved it by loading previous saved files - it just seamed strange... And on a very random side note, twice I've clicked on to the forum homepage link from a Google search and been taken to Adult Friend Finder or some similar name... could it be the forum end? :-/
