    touch screen problem

    Is the USB plugged directly to the back of the console (not via a hub). Is the monitor on the "supported" list (yes it is). Compatible-touchscreen-monitors-with-ZerOS-consoles Which console? (FLX, FLX-S48, Solution etc) If FLX try "Factory Reset" from Setup -> Clear If FLX under Z -> System Information can you see the touchscreen listed?
  2. Is it just me... On the Forum at the moment I can only get to page 1 of a topic. I can't get to page 2 etc of e.g. the FLX forum by any means: - click "2", "3" etc -> No - click "Next" -> No - click ">>" (last page) -> No -click "Go to page", type number or use arrows -> No - do a search and in the search results try and move pages -> No It always just brings me back to page 1. Strange... anyone else having this? Kevin

    Thanks Jon - working ok again now (just like Ian's Demux48)! 😎

    Can't get beyond page 1 of a Forum topic

    Thanks Ian, at least I'm not going mad. Work have been locking down a bit recently - can't listen to BBC radio online any more for example (miserable s*ds). Hoped that wasn't also affecting Z88 Forum access!!! Kevin ps Is that a "new" Demux-48 in your profile photo>?!!! 🙂

    Updating palette

    Sorry I'm having trouble navigating the Forum at the moment to find a past topic on this, but it will be something like: - Tag the parameter to remove - Turn off Smart Tag - In the Update window, click Remove - OK the Update This is what it is on FLX (full model), not sure how the UI differs on the S24/S48. Hope this gives you something to try. Kevin

    Fixture profile delete

    It's a problem I have too and I don't have a good answer, other than putting some kind of version number in the profile name (say v1,v2,v3 etc) on the end so you can find the "old" ones. Then really all you can do is reassign the fixture then do this: I've requested an enhancement to support this requirement sometime in the past.

    3 and 4 Wheel Groups arrangement

    Hi Franck I think the 4 wheel group setting is only for the Illusion series consoles (and the 3 wheel group for Frogs). Which console are you using? I'm not sure how you associate colours with particular encoders on say FLX: on the fixtures I make they just come up in the order I declare them! Kevin

    rgbw in playback

    Reset your desk. Follow the article I referenced. Reproduce their example. Understand tagging/SmartTag a bit. Go back to your original requirement with that new knowledge and programme it and configure the playbacks with the recipe you've learned.

    Display question

    I think you should if it's convenient. As it was like that from new I think that's what Edward would say!

    Display question

    Looks broken to me.

    rgbw in playback

    The cue colour fade time defaults to 3 seconds and are LTP at 5% fader, whereas intensity will be HTP. Does that explain what you're seeing? Did you try the approach in the Knowledgebase article substituting your colours for their RGB?

    rgbw in playback

    Maybe depends how you recorded the playbacks - what information was recorded. Some of the concepts explained in this Knowledgebase article might be relevant (such as you might need to be turning off SmartTag when you record your colour setup playbacks). Have a read and a play with your more specific colour setup and see if it resolves the conflicts: http://support.zero88.com/Consoles/FLX/1014413041/RGB-Colour-Mixing-on-faders-FLX-Series.htm Kevin

    chase on Tempo / speed / fade time

    I guess for a variable fade chase you could keep your cue stack and use Auto Trigger to cycle through the cues. In the cue list, choose the Settings button (or select the Cue Options cell and press enter).

    Brand new FLX - questions

    Edward. That will be the critical ‘right click’ bit... 🤦‍♂️Doh.

    Brand new FLX - questions

    Hi Edward, So these are the instructions in the KB: To set the IP address of a PC as per Windows 10: Right click Start, and choose "Network Connections", to open Control Panel Double Click on "Ethernet" Double click “Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)”, and click “Use the Following IP Address” then set the IP to and the subnet to, and click OK. The sequence is a little longer than the list above - I've finally found it. I guess if you do this every day, then you know where it is! Start, "network connections" just gets me some useless web searches. Start "Control Panel" gets me of course to control panel app, but it's not at all clear how to then get to somewhere to set a fixed IP address (rather than say DHCP). I know the form you refer to but can't for the life of me find where the darn thing is in Win 10. Of course, they try to hide this kind of low level stuff more and more - it's comparable to Jon not wanting us to be able to access DMX values on the console! 😋 So finally I've found it: So once at Control Panel, we take "Network and Internet" then "View Network status and tasks"? Then "Connections: Local Area Connection" Then "Properties". Then select "Internet Protocol Version 4", Then "Properties". Then At last "Use the following IP address". 😆 One other question - I tried to use Phanton ZerOS with Capture - is that possible, or does it only work with a real desk? Thanks, Kevin

    Brand new FLX - questions

    Edward - the Windows 10 PC IP setting instructions aren't correct (certainly not as April 2018). Can you elaborate/update in the article? Thanks.

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Hi Eric We really should return to the FLX forum for these usage questions. Also it would be good for you to start new topics. This is because we will create a historical reference of knowledge on FLX and other FLX users can both learn and contribute to our collective knowledge. We will not find these answers in this part of the forum after a couple of months. In addition you will find your queries are missed as they are buried with other queries and bug reports -> start separate topics for each query, it's better that way! Regards the chase speed I am no expert but I understand there are two ways: On a playback programmed with a Chase, SETUP+playback button then Chase page will allow you to select Global Tempo or set a private BPM (beats per minute) tempo for this playback - either type BPM number or tap the MFF button for tempo (maybe button has to be configured for this). For global tempo, the speed can be set by a MFF. SETUP+playback button on an unprogrammed MFF will allow you to set that MFF as the tempo adjust on the fader. These should both be in the current user manual. Regards the manual I think this will only get updated with a major software revision. My personal view is that I agree the FLX manual is quite weak for such a complex product when I compare with other Zero88 manual and other brands. Other users have voiced their concerns back on the FLX forum. You can also use the Orb XF manual, the Knowledgebase and this forum for other support, plus whatever you can glean from the Release Notes. My wish would be that a Jon were more inclined towards the FLX product documentation but I suspect this is one aspect of his job he least enjoys, but conversely he does seem to devote his time to product definition, improvements and furthering the range. Edward does seem quite adept with both his product knowledge and descriptions here on this forum so maybe he might be persuaded to work on the product manual. Having the manual in electronic rather than paper form may be one way to keep the official documentation more in step with the software releases. Anyway enough of my waffle, but I hope that answers some of your queries even if it is only from another users perspective. Kevin

    Solution - Solution XL VS FLX - FLX S 48

    Eric - Edward just wants you to disable this function to try to debug your spurious light problem. Normally it is convenient to leave this setting enabled so when you move a channel MFF the channel is selected.
  25. Well it needs more work to smarten it up a bit - adding gobo pictures and the like (depends which console you have). Sorry if I misinterpreted some of the French manual in places, I tried to get the right "intent"! At least it has got you going. Probably worth an email to FixtureSupport@Zero88.com to point at this Forum entry to get a full and complete set of fixture definitions built and added to the next official library release. All the best, Kevin
