Update 7.9.3 problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, and firstable : happy new year !!

Here's the problem : i've updated the system to 7.9.3

Since i've done this, my old playbacks are not reacting the same way : when i raise a fader, it's not dimming smoothly as before, but instead i have a kind of graduated levels of intensity.

(only with playbacks of LED fixtures, not with traditional halogen fixtures)

I didn't found why, so i've downgraded to 7.9.2.5 and that's ok now

Any idea ?

Hi Thierry,

Happy New Year!

Hmm that's odd. I haven't seen this before.

Would you be able to email me your show file that the graduated intensity is present in? If you could let me know which Playback is causing problems, I'll be able to see if I can replicate the issue.

Kind regards
Edward

Hi Edward and thank you for your mail.

So i have updated again to 7.9.3 and reloaded my show.

You were right, RigSync was enabled (i don't remember having touched anything about this, i don't even know what it's made for...).

I have disabled RigSync and everything is fine now.

You rule !!!

Thanks for all, regards

Thierry

Hi Thierry,

Great glad that solved it! You can find out what RigSync is be reading the article here...

Hi Edward,

I have read yesterday the same link and the link with the compatible fixtures.

Unfortunatly, even if i own 4 Robe Robin600E wich are compatible, my other fixtures (LinearLeds 36x10W RGBW from Linear technologie) are not, so the option "RigSync" has to stay disabled, if i've well understood everything. 

Thank you again, regards

In the thread below, Jon suggests a workaround for a DMX Universe with fixtures who do not behave in the presence of RDM packets. See the section on DMX address:

Hi Kgallen,

I think i've understood, but in the room where i'm working there's only one "DMX" cable connected  to a splitter far away in an other room, then several "DMX" cables are dispatched where i need them.

It's not physically possible (well, very complicated...) to install a second even a third cable, so that i could use several universes.

I'm obliged to work like this and i can't do nothing about, 1 Universe and that's all, and with 1 Universe : no "workaround" :), and with no "workaround" : no "RigSync" :)

Regards,

Thierry

It's not about more cables/Universes, it's about patching your non-compliant fixtures at DMX addresses above 32 (or above 257) on the one universe you have installed.

However I see you've listed some fixtures (LinearLeds 36x10W RGBW) that I'm sure gobble up DMX addresses so you may not have enough addresses from 257-512 to do this.

Also you might not want to get involved in RDM fixture configuration if you have a stable setup using manual configuration that is working perfectly well (i.e. not using technology for technology's sake!).

All the best.

That's it !!!

And I have 10 Selecon PLCYC2 too, and i don't want to "re-address" & "re-patch" all.

My setup is stable, i keep it like this. too much technology "kills" technology :)

Thierry

I'd argue it's closer to this statement ^_^
