FLX Remote buttons

Recommended Posts

Hi David,

Many thanks for posting that’s great to see. 

For reference, it is also worth mentioning that CTRL + F1 through to CTRL + F6 on an external keyboard, mimic the first 6 remote switch triggers.

That is useful to know. Thanks. Not quite as useful as a direct button on the console but great if your soldering proves to be unreliable mid show.

Great work David, I will post a photo of my shoe box size switch box (it is a no solder option though) Edward why does the keyboard only do the first 6 buttons?

I'm guessing Edward"s reply will reference the fact that other desks can only have 6 remote switches.

On Solution and ORB series consoles, there are 6 remote switches, and so the 6 keyboard shortcuts keep this compatible across the range.

A request to map Remote switches 7 & 8 to a keyboard shortcut for FLX is logged on our tracking system as reference number ZOS-9497.

Cheers,

Edward

Old Frog user. I used a key fob remote and receiver, set up a cue for each fixture then used the key fob to step through them when focusing. It was a three button fob so I used one as "shift" to get four options... reset to 1st spot cue, reset to 1st wash cue, next cue and previous cue. Saved a lot of walking along the catwalks. Not necessary now, with the remote app.
