  1. Hi Rob, Great, glad to hear it. That's correct. To remotely control FLX S using a tablet or phone, you will need a wireless router connected to the console. Any standard wireless router or wireless access point should be fine. For demonstrations and training, we use NetGear routers. More information can be found below... http://support.zero88.com/996119181 Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward
  2. Hi Rob, You cannot have both devices with the same IP address. In the world of Ethernet, devices must have unique addresses, or else there will be conflicts. Therefore please set: FLX S24 - Laptop - Both with subnets of Please try this and let me know how you get on. Edward
  3. Hi Rob, In the ZerOS Remote Monitor software for Windows, the FLX S24 should appear automatically, if the IP address of the console and the IP address of the laptop are configured correctly. An example of IP addresses you could use, are for the FLX S24, and for the laptop, both with subnets of Please follow the following steps for information on how to change your laptop's IP address - the option is hidden away in Windows 10 - ... - The easiest way to change the IP address on a Windows 10 laptop, is open Control Panel. Tap the Windows Key, and type Control Panel to find it. - Then top right view by icons rather than category, and choose Network and Sharing Centre. - From the left hand side, choose Change Adapter Settings. Then double click on "Ethernet", and then double click on "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IP)". - Then choose "Use the following IP address", and type an IP in range with the console, such as as suggested. Hit tab, and the subnet should auto populate as - You can then click OK. Then open ZerOS Remote Monitor for Windows, and the FLX S24 should appear. If after using the laptop connected to your FLX S, you then want to plug your laptop into a network connected to the Internet, you will need to repeat the above steps, and then rather than choosing "Use the following IP Address", choose "Obtain an IP address automatically". The name the desk shows can be configured on the FLX S24, by tapping SETUP -> Settings -> Desk Name. Hope this helps, if you have any questions let me know. Edward
  4. Hi Chris, No problem. Any questions let me know. Edward
  5. Hi Chris, That is correct, MIDI Notes will trigger playbacks 1-128, with no way of applying an offset. Hope this helps, Edward
  6. Hi Chris, Yes thank you - hope you are too. ZerOS can only be set to receive a single MIDI Notes channel number. There are 16 channels in total (0-15). 128 playbacks can therefore be triggered from a single MIDI Notes channel (MIDI Note Pitch 0-127). A fade time can be applied using the velocity. For more information see below... http://support.zero88.com/990063141 Hope this helps, Edward
  7. Hi David, Thanks very much for posting, and for those links. I'll add to this thread too - if anyone wants to refresh some lighting key terms, see below... https://zero88.com/jargon For questions on how to do the above, just let me know. For a 20 minute chat with myself or one of the others in the Zero 88 support team, see below... https://zero88.com/news/zero-88-to-provide-free-remote-training-and-support Edward
  8. Hi Martin, Hope you can find the reason for this soon. When Wireshark is running, it should put the currently sniffed NIC (Network Interface Card such as Ethernet or WiFi) into “promiscuous mode”. This means it should be able to see traffic out of range and not on the NIC’s Host Address. A way for your PC to become an ArtNet device, is to run a piece of software that can be controlled by ArtNet. You could use our presentation files of Capture visualisation software for this... http://support.zero88.com/1004254221 Run this application, and Capture will then send an ArtPollReply packet from the PC to the source (in response to the ArtPoll), and you will then see ArtDMX being sent to your laptop. If you have RDM enabled on FLX S, you will also see ArtTodRequest packets, as FLX S is asking devices for any RDM information. Hope this helps, Edward
  9. Hi Martin, ArtNet devices should always send ArtPollReply packets, to notify other ArtNet devices of its presence. If a device doesn't, it would be considered "offline", and the source would stop sending ArtDMX to that device. Edward
  10. Hi Martin, I’m not able to attach a Wireshark capture file now, however will do this for you so you can take a look. You should be seeing ArtDMX packets from FLX S, ArtPoll packets from FLX S, and ArtPollReply packets from all ArtNet devices. That’s odd, what is your ArtNet device? Yep, I think all of the Zero 88 community are going to be finding their consoles are getting used less on shows in the next few months. If you have any questions let us know. Edward
  11. Hi Adam, Yes that is correct. If you have RDM enabled fixtures connected to FLX S, it should be able to detect them, and patch them for you. If you then change the fixture's mode, or change its address from the console, the settings will also change on the fixture. For more information, see the video below... Hope this helps, Edward
  12. Hello, To loop a cue stack automatically, set an auto after trigger on cue 1. Tap the settings button at the end of cue 1’s row, and using the Trigger drop down, chose Auto After. You can then configure a wait time, and the console will then run cue 1 after the last cue. As you mention, only real way of doing this on FLX S, is to use the rainbow effect. On the full size FLX console, you could apply an effect to the virtual colour wheel channel and offset this across your fixtures, however FLX S consoles are limited to the auto effects. If you have any questions let me know. Edward
  13. Hi Nigel, OK thanks for the information. Without knowing everything used for your small network, I wonder if Macs block less traffic if using DHCP, rather than a static IP? If that is what affected the system to work, it doesn’t sound like it was anything wrong with the settings on Capture or FLX S. If you have any questions let me know. Edward
  14. Hi both, The audio input can trigger chases to run. When you’ve programmed a chase, you can go into its settings, and enable sound to light. The audio jack input can be a balanced or unbalanced signal. Many sound consoles have jack outputs for monitors, which you can take a feed from and plug into the console. For best results, feed a bass filtered signal, so the console knows what to step the chase’s cues to. It’s always good to also have the ability to adjust the volume level entering the console. Hope this helps, Edward
