  1. Hi All I am using the Solution at work and have something I can't work out. I have been programming chases with our moving heads which works fine but when I want to run a very slow chase say 5 bpm the movers will go to the first step in the chase then wait for a few seconds before the chase continues and repeats. Once it starts its fine and there is no pause. If I use say the default chase speed of 60 bpm I don't have this problem. This might be how its designed to work, if so is there a work around the issue? On a slightly different note I did the upgrade to 7.8.2 the other day and had issues with channels 31 to 33 on the fader bank. 31 did nothing at all 32 and 33 worked but then got stuck at 1% when bought back down. Restarting the desk fixes this but it then happens after a little while again. Any idea's? Thanks Jack
  2. Thanks for the responces, I'll make sure I go directly onto the subs next time! But loading the steps in to the programmer has also worked a treat! Thanks guys!
  3. Hi I have been working on some large chases for a bunch of active suntrips which have taken me ages to make! I have made them in the cue stack but only want them on subs. I have copied them into subs but when I delete the memory with that chase in the cue stack it dissapears in the sub to. Is there anyway to copy them over to subs but not delete them from both places. I really dont want to have to make them again on the subs! Cheers Jack
  4. Hi Jon The board is in 'non tracking' mode and the software version is 7.7.0 I'm sure I'm just missing something small here. Thank you Jack
  5. Hi We have recently bought a Solution and can't fault it! I am still working my way through its functions etc. I have been programming a show on it and hit a small snag which I can't work out! I have programmed a couple of chases into the cue stack but when I have programmed a cue after the chase cue, the moving lights will dim as they should but they continue to run the chase! I have tried to home them and turn the intensity to 0% then programmed the next cue but they still move. It wouldn't be so bad but they are quite loud when they move! Am I doing something wrong?! Thank you Jack
  6. Hi Jon Ok, Thanks for the info. I will get a letter sorted and send it to Keith. Many Thanks Jack
  7. Hi Apologies if this has been covered before but I wan't to set a Lock Code for our Fat Frog. I have tried to change the code but it is asking for the old code. I have no idea what this is though. I think someone did set a code at one point but they no longer work with us and I can't get in contact with them. Is there anyway I can reset the code? I can't afford to have someone lock the desk and not be able to get it unlocked again as its used daily. Many Thanks Jack

    Betapack 3

    Hi, I have a problem with one of the Betapack 3 dimmer packs we have in our school. All of a sudden channels/plugs 5 and 6 have stopped working. I've tried changing the DMX channels etc but still no luck. Im wondering if something has gone inside. Any idea's? I dont think its very old. Many Thanks Jack
  10. Hopefully it has got to you now. Thanks Jack

  13. Hi Does anybody have a fixture file for Futurelight PHS-150 Moving Light? If not ill have a go at making one! Its for a Fat Frog board. Many Thanks Jack
  14. Thanks for the quick responce, Date and time are holding no problem. I have reset the desk and the battery status is now 'Ok'. Thanks for you help. Jack
  15. Hi I have a fat frog desk at work and it seems to generally be working fine. But today I noticed that the battery status had changed to 'Failed' it also states it has failed on boot up. Everything seems to be working ok, and its holding all of its settings etc without any issues. The battery was changed about 3 months ago, so I can't imagine its gone flat already. Is this going to cause issues with the desk? Or should I just continue to use it as it is? Thanks Jack
  16. Hi Sorry, they may be a topic on this already but I am new to this forum. I have a Fat Frog desk where I work at my local high school. Every time I use the Floppy Drive the desk restarts, after it has restarted a couple of times it will then work and I can load/save shows etc. It takes twice as long to load shows as I have to wait for it to boot up every time I load from a floppy. I have tried replacing the drive which didn't help. It is especially bad when I try and load a fixture from a floppy disk. Our main school show is coming up next week and although the board saves shows to its memory, I like to have a backup but I am concerned that all the restarting isn't doing the desk any good. Thanks Jack
