  1. Hi Edward, Thanks for you reply. The 1024x768 resolution must be what is causing the pixelated image on the external monitor, and also the iPad. I'm guessing it's the same image used for both, just stretched over the external monitor, and again on the iPad? Are there any plans to improve the resolution of this image? The Phantom ZerOS has a cleaner more native pixel allocation, except for the Front Panel window, which is almost unreadable, even at full maximised state. (please see screen shot attached). And this happens for both "High Quality Scaling" on or off, in the settings. Please advise if there is a way to setup the computer of FLX to obtain better images for any of the above. Thanks in advance, Regards, Matthew
  2. Thank Edward, So the company LAN consists of 18 buildings each with a different subnet address. ie 10.Building_ID.VLAN_ID.Device_ID The following devices will be connected to a network switch in one building:- Zero88 FLX S48 (via ethernet port, art-net protocol) Crestron Room Processor Pro2 (or DMPS3) via Art-Net Enttec Datagate Mk2 ie https://www.enttec.com/products/network-and-distribution/dmx-management/datagate-mk2/ The Datagate Mk2 will then merge the FLX S and the Crestron Art-Net streams, plus merge the DMX input port from some DMX keypads around the venue. (So a three way merge in the Datagate Mk2.) Then output a single DMX port to the dimmers. (There will also be internal software switches and priority merges utilised inside the Datagate. And we may also use RDM to query the dimmers.) However, remote iPad control of the FLX (and Crestron) system is required via the WAP in the same building. (And this works well, btw, already tested 🙂 But from all other buildings via wired connections and WAP / Wifi connections, we need to be able to monitor and control the FLX for AV remote venue support. Again this is tested, and seems to work. The company LAN is fairly wide (18x buildings), and there is a gateway, such that our VLAN has access to the internet. So the FLX is on an internet accessible network, however, through a gateway with a strong firewall. There will also be up to 5 or more FLX S's on the whole network, as we roll out lighting console upgrades. So does the above network structure seem like a suitable and stable setup to you, Edward? Thanks very much in advance, Regards Matthew
  3. Hello, The screen graphics on some of the external devices of our FLX S is very pixelated and unclear to read. This includes with the External Monitor (DVI), Phantom ZerOs (on the PC), iPad, and iPhone. Is there an optimal resolution for the various screens? Is there some way to force the windows or screen resolutions to the optimal / native resolution so that the words are clear and more readable? Thanks in advance.
  4. Hello, All throughout the FLX S manual it says, "NB: FLX S should not be connected to the Internet" Why is this so? I have about 5x FLX S's that are intended to sit on an educational network spanning many buildings, [10.x.y.z, where x = 1 to 20 subnets] and I need to:- have remote control of the consoles within in the venues over Wifi (on the same LAN), eg via Android and iOS. have remote monitoring from within the AV Office, (on the same LAN, but wired). The main option for a network is the college's LAN, which is highly Firewall-ed internally. However, it is connected the the Internet. I would also need to add a few ArtNet nodes onto the same LAN, to also be controlled and monitored by a PC, Smartphone, and sometimes an FLX S. Can anyone please explain the risks of this situation and reasons why I should or shouldn't go ahead with this idea? Thanks in advance.
