    Adjusting External Monitor Resolution

    Hi, I am trying to attach a DELL ST2200 touch screen to my FLX. I get a prompt on the touch screen to adjust input timing to 1920 X 1080@60Hz. In the FLX manual on page 46, System Settings, External Display Settings it mentions 'To change the monitors resolution, change “Resolution” from “Auto Detect” to one of the listed resolutions. FLX will change the resolution for 15 seconds, and then automatically revert it to the previous setting unless you click Keep on the internal monitor within those 15 seconds.' Unfortunately I cannot see any menu item 'Resolution' within (External Display Settings).....?? I am also using a DVI (Single) cable... but by all accounts that should support 1920 X 2000. Any help much appreciated please....?? Just to add, I added an ordinary monitor (not touchscreen) using the DVI Single cable all it was fine.
  2. Hi, I have everything connected up between desk and PC with Capture visualiser. Unfortunately I do not have the signal going to the visualiser from the desk. I suspect I am using the wrong cable as the one I am currently using I found in the bottom of a drawer. Looking at RJ45 images there are many different types of cable. Can anyone please advise...??
  3. Hi all, I have just updated to V7.9.4 and this evening customising some cues and playbacks. I have an existing playback for moving heads (movements) and am trying to record a couple of other movements I am after. I am using Phantom OS with a visualiser and all looks good. Unfortunately when I record the cue to an existing playback on playing an On/Off effect has been introduced and I cant fathom out why. Does anyone have any ideas please......?? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Recording Cue's - Introducing unwanted On/Off effect....??

    Thanks Ed, its sorted now but dont understand what I did to rectify it. I just plodded on trying different approaches and one seemed to work when checking the next day.

    ZerOS 7.9.4 Released

    Hi John/Ed, Please bear with me as I probably have this wrong. I was looking to update my software to ZerOS 7.9.4. On the link above, namely - zero88.com/software/zeros I was hoping to download the console software and the Phantom OS 7.9.4 software for my PC. I do a lot of programming away from home on a PC and visualiser hence the requirement for both. I am currently operating 7.9.2 and the two .exe files used for that are Console - ZerOS 7.9.2 (USB Installer - 86MB) and PC - Phantom ZerOS 7.9.2 (PC emulator). Now for the part that is confusing me. When I go to the link both the console and Phantom software is the same link and titled ZerOS_7.9.4.zip (87.6MB). If I try to install this to the PC I get the prompt to load this on a USB device but I want to obviously load it on my 'C' drive. I would be grateful if you can please advise what I am getting wrong please chaps....?? Thanks in advance. Mac
  8. Evening all. It seems my FLX desk will only recognise a FAT32 formatted USB stick. The problem is that my PC (Win7) gives me the bothersome problem of not copying files with all its properties if being copied to a FAT32 formatted USB stick. Has anyone else come across this problem and if so how do you get around it please....??
  9. Uriahdemon

    FAT32 or NTFS for USB stick to record and transfer shows

    Hi Jon, I have not gone into exactly what is not getting copied but will do this evening. Are you saying that I should ignore the prompt i.e. copying without all properties......??
  10. I have read the manual and it mentions offset however does not explain what it does. Can anyone help please...??
  11. Uriahdemon

    Offset Attribute - What is it.... what does it do please....?

    Thanks Ed, I will have a play with that later.
  12. Hi All. I am going back to stage one to set up my desk as I have quickly realised that the programming becomes so much easier with a healthy and flexible set of pallettes available. Unfortunately when playing with the colour pallettes when automatically creating them there are a number that appear without the colour slash (logo) indicator on them, a number that appear with the wrong colour slash (logo) indicator and a few which repeat the colour but with either no or the wrong colour slash (logo) indicator. Am I doing something wrong.....?? Any help much appreciated please.

    New Effects Pallets - To include position pallet information

    Thanks Ed, recording to a playback it is then.
  14. Hi, I am attempting to set up a set of new pallets to include within them various effects and associated sizes and speeds etc. I have a position pallet named 'Home Effects' which brings my movers around to a starting position and I then add an effect and adjust size and speed (I will make a separate post regarding Offset). I was hoping to record this to an effects pallet however on doing that the 'Home Effects' information is discarded so the movers are not operating as required. Am I doing something wrong or is this simply not possible using pallets....??
  15. Thanks Ed, file attached. Rgds Mac
  16. Thanks..... I have not played with the fixture editor as yet so will have a look...... I was trying to keep away from it but hey ho.... time to dive in.
  17. Hi, can I please have an FF for an ADJ VBar Pak LED Bar. I have attached the manual. Rgds Mac ADJ V Bar.pdf

    Touch screen not working

    oops, I am such a numpty !!!

    Touch screen not working

    Pinky........I would not be too hasty in immediately saying there is a technical fault with the desk. I had the same problem with my desk when getting it new a few weeks back. I persevered and the issue was the desk not seeing the touchscreen. I updated the software and hey presto... it worked. Is your touchscreen on the compatible list on the Eaton website. Dont worry if it is not as this is being added to all the time.

    FLX one to one training..... and happy to pay for it....?

    Thanks very much Ed, email on the way.
  21. Hi FLX guru's. I have just taken hold of an FLX desk and a wing. I am well educated in the general approach to setting up a controller and using it. My experience to date has been on Freestyler but obviously the FLX has more to offer. There are so many questions and ideas I have for the set up but find the new programming and execution approach of the FLX a little extraordinary. No besmirch to Zero88 it is just my previous experience that is lacking to transition to use the desk. Is there anyone out there that would be happy to put a couple of hours a week aside and via Skype tutor me through the fundamentals please. I have an event in Sep I am working towards with a new controller (FLX) and fixtures so a complete step change from what I am used to. I just come across some stuff that is not on the logical thought process and need that in depth knowledge. Happy to pay for the guidance. Just to say the Zero 88 team have been great and I have been on a training course with them. I just feel that some one to one understanding what I have and where I want to go would be a huge advantage to me. If you can help please message me. Best Rgds Mac
  22. Hi, I have selected a fixture (Chauvet Intimidator Hybrid 140SR) and looking at the colour palettes. When using Auto nothing is created. I went on to manually create colour palettes and name them but I dont get the colour indicators (colour slashes) which is what I really want. Same kind of question for getting gobo logos on the pallet buttons......?? Can anyone help please...??

    Creating Pallettes - with colour/gobo indicators/logos

    Thanks Ed, on changing the colour wheel I only get the colours already on the palette. I am assuming you mean there is some where to get into the RGB levels and set something suitable but I am stuffed to be able to find it mate...??

    Creating Pallettes - with colour/gobo indicators/logos

    All good on that now thanks Ed. One thing I do note is that when I have this fixture selected and looking at the colour pallets there are a number not blue i.e. Orange for example. How do I create orange on the desk and get it into that palette please..?? Rgds Mac
