keyboard issues

Recommended Posts

The keybaord on the ORB doesn't work - or at least the letters don't work on the command line. Both sets of numbers work, and the letters work when renaming items (macro, submaster, cue, etc) - so I know it see the keyboard.

OS Version 5.0.2.0

Software Version 5.4.0

Motherboard BIOS - MODBR131

Any ideas?

 

thanx

Hi Russ,

 

What are you trying to type into the command line?

 

The command line will only let allowed syntax to be typed - which is via the front panel, or a number pad for channel numbers, cue times etc.

I assumed you could type any of the functions, things like:

select stack n

colour n record

load <udk> <cue>

etc.

 

rather than pressing the function key.

 

It sounds like the keyboard is only good for renaming objects (cue, stack, udk, etc).

It's not possible to type syntax such as that directly into the command line. The keyboard is an accessory to make functions such as naming cues a lot easier.

 

Using the keyboard as you describe would take a very long time to complete functions that are very quick when using the front panel. The front panel is also a lot more accurate, as the desk knows what is coming and what is and isn't allowed at each point throughout the command line.

If you're taking requests for feature adds to the next version of the OS, can you add command line entering via the keyboard to the list :) ? Being an old Unix admin, it's easier for me to type commands than try and find the button to make it work.

 

thanx

I've added this as issue ZOS-3187 - 'Command Line via Keyboard'.

 

This means that it's on our database to be discussed and, if agreed, prioritised.
