  2. Looking at the all the Relay Fixtures with the Fixture Editor show ALL relay parameters are exactly the same. "0" to "127" will be "0" (OFF) and "128" thru "255" will be "255" (ON). But yet parameters "7" thu "12" act like range encoders and "1" thru "6" act as switched. (Just to clarify). I will create some relay fixture versions to see if it's just something I am missing. Off topic - but curious: I created a "Parked" fixture that is always ON (255) as soon as the console is powered up. This is meant to turn on a number of DMX Addresses that control the non-dim modules that power DMX controlled fixtures so they are energized and ready for the show. Is there ANY reason you might want to UNPARK a "Parked" fixture during a show?
  3. All good! Bootable USB did the trick... Thanks. Phil.

    Brilliant, Thanks Edward, Just hit me as something that required flagging up. Joe
  5. Yesterday
  6. This would be really useful as it's pretty hard to figure out what the buttons are on-the-fly. A background image in the window which has all the same labels as the desk (as opposed to rendering each label individually) would be fine.
  7. Nah, I don't see "GO" on Phantom but I do on the desk button! 😋
  8. Hi Karl, Thanks for letting us know. This is an option in the fixture editor software, under the fixture’s parameter’s details. We will look to add the switched encoder rather than range encoders to relays 6 thru 12 in a future library update. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
  9. Hello, Apologies, by button labels, I mean writing on the physical console buttons, not next to them. Phantom ZerOS currently doesn’t display front panel markings. This is something we may look to add in a future software update. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
  10. There are labels for every button on the Solution: The issue is that I don't see any.
  11. In the fixture library there is a 12-channel relay. If I add this, I get relays 1 -> 4 on the encoder wheels. I can toggle between 0 and 255. When I hit the "Beam" I get 5 ->8 on the encoder wheels. Relays 5 and 6 have just 0 and 255 when I move the encoders. 7 and 8 give me give me 0 through 255 as the wheel spins. Hitting Beam gives me relays 9 -> 12 on the encoder wheels. However, again the encoders move 0 through 255 (meaning EVERY value in between) - not just 0 and 255. Firmware version 7.9.6 Fixture Library 38. I looked at the fixtures with Fixture Type Editor and can not see the issue. Any thoughts? S24 and S48 consoles act the same. I will verify, but I assume the 6-channel relay will work as expected (1-6 gave only 0 or 255).
  12. Hello, Phantom ZerOS will mimic the physical console. Therefore if there aren't button labels on the physical console, they won't be shown on Phantom. You can however hover over a button, and in the Window header next to "Front Panel", the button name will be shown. Hope this helps, Edward
  13. Hi Joe, Automatically updating Next cues after renumbering cues in a playback is something we are looking to implement in a future software version. This is logged on our software enhancement system as reference number ZOS-8373. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
  14. Already sent Hope they can help!! Cheers
  15. Failing to boot since I was in setup and loaded new ZerOS. It continues spin when power on. I'll go with the bootable USB and let you know. Thanks.
  16. Hi Phil, Has the console booted since performing the software update, or does the LCD continually spin whilst the console is powered? If the console is failing to boot, please download a fresh copy of ZerOS 7.9.6 from the website here... Please follow the instructions available below, which detail how to perform the software update from a bootable USB stick... http://support.zero88.com/1518909581 If you have any questions let me know. Edward
  17. Hi Raffa, Please send a copy of the fixture's manual to fixturesupport@zero88.com, and we'll be able to make the fixture file for you. Edward
  18. FLX was operating fine, new software version loaded via USB in setup. Now the FLX appears stuck - with the mini display screen above PAGE UP spinning lines in circles. Nothing else has happened... Sorry - should say, got to point of loading the file where files were installed and then prompted to turn desk off and it got stuck when I switched back on.

    Renumbering Query

    Hi all, Just happened to notice something I thought I would question when demonstrating how to renumber a cue stack to my colleague. We had a simple cue stack created and I had demonstrated how to set instructions for cues to jump to specific 'next cues' should he ever have a need to jump around the stack. He then asked me about recording cues in between stack numbers so I showed him which led us onto the renumber function. Upon renumbering the cue stack I noticed that the 'next cue' instructions hadn't updated and would require manually changing. I would have thought that the system would have updated normally to keep the next cue links correct however they failed to update. It seems a bit awkward if you have to go through all of your cue stack checking these numbers each time you renumber. If this is how they have been designed to work then I guess I will have to remember that for future programming however I thought it may be worth looking at for future additions. Cheers Joe
  20. Just found the manual. Please tell me it works!! https://www.dj-store.ru/data/files/files/280_file.pdf
  21. Yes, that's rigtht Keith replied to me. But it didn't work And the manual that it came with the product doesn show any more information about the lights. Don't know what 2 do now..!! But thanks alot
  22. I've been suffering with this bug in Phantom ZerOS for a while now where the labels of buttons on the front panel window don't show. For example (on the Solution): However in Phantom Jester the labels appear fine: You can see that some labels appear fine (the ones on the buttons) on desks like the Orb: However the "background image" (ie. the lines on the desk behind the faders) are still missing. I've also tried uninstalling & updating to the latest version of ZerOS (v7.9.6) which didn't seem to help. Any ideas? Thanks!
  23. Hi Mac, It's ArtNet over Ethernet or sACN over Ethernet. ArtNet and sACN are just two higher layer protocols, for carrying DMX-like numbers, that exploit an ethernet network (and even then I think there might be some network restrictions/implications!). Likewise DMX512 is just a protocol for transporting 512 numbers regularly over a pair of wires!
  24. Thanks both. It was something I was hoping to stay away from as 2 universes is more than enough for the stuff I am doing now i.e. house fixtures on Uni 1 and my ground package on Uni2. But I am always a little nervous not having a backup of sorts hence using a laptop which necessitates the use of an RJ45 output. I will have a look at sACN over Artnet Ed. Thanks again both for your help.
  25. Ouch. Those things - even the "budget" brands (although in my experience Showtec are pretty good) - are expensive aren't they! Glad I can (currently) stay within the two universes of DMX XLR on my FLX! Good luck Mac! ETA: I bought the Brad Schiller book a while back. It's ok, but if you've been doing this stuff for more than a couple of months I don't think it will take you anywhere new. I'm certainly no expert on using movers - but I got one decent idea from the book - to lay out my palettes akin to the physical placement of the fixtures!
  26. Hi Mac, Yes, that's an 8 port Ethernet to DMX gateway. It doesn't however support the sACN protocol, so you would have to use the ArtNet protocol on FLX. to breakout to fixtures on the stage. Many venue installs will use Ethernet cabling from a patch room up to ports on the rig bars. This can be cheaper than using dedicated RS-485 cabling, and can double up of either being DMX or an Ethernet signal. If you were sending DMX, you could then use the Stairville unit to get to standard XLR DMX connectors to plug into fixtures. ArtNet and sACN both have their pros and cons. Both have slightly different feature sets on top of the basic DMX over Ethernet functionality. If you wish to use the unit you linked to, as I mentioned you'll have to use ArtNet. If you were interested though, there are many books available discussing these and other lighting networking protocols. A quick search shows the popular ones... Google Books As a general rule, unless configuring specific universe routing, only use one protocol to stream DMX over Ethernet at a time. Hope this helps, Edward
