Connecting FLX S24 to capture

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I recently got to use the flx s24 and i got to take it home, they told my i could hook it up to capture wich i have some showfiles ready with some moving heads.

I connected my pc and the S24 together using a cat5 cable, i turned on CITP on the s24 and set it to DHCP, nothing happend. I also messed around a bit with setting up Ip-Adresses, nothing worked for me. I patched all of the fixture but there where some missing in the table so i replaced them in capture.

Kind Regards

Jarno

Hi Jarno,

If you had the FLX S and the PC connected directly with a single Ethernet cable, DHCP won’t work. This is because there has to be a DHCP server on the network, such as a router. You will therefore have needed to configure the console’s CITP IP address to be in the same range as your PC’s IP address. An example could be the PC set to 10.1.1.1, and the console set to 10.1.1.2, both with a subnet of 255.255.255.0.

Once the IP addresses are in range, start Capture on the PC. On the FLX S tap Z/Shift -> System Information -> Network overview. You should see the console displays that it is connected to your PC, and Capture and your console are communicating.

Hope this helps, if you have any questions let us know.

Hello Edward,

Thanks for the fast response,

It kind of worked, it now says it is transmitting but it is not turning on/moving any lights in capture, i have set my pc to 10.1.1.1 and the s24 on 10.1.12 and both on subnet 255.255.255.0 but it still doesn't seem to work

Kind Regards

Jarno

Hi Jarno,

It might be worth trying out the show file and Capture file available here...

This will prove whether FLX S and the laptop are talking, and whether there is an issue with the Capture settings. Are you using the full Capture software, or a presentation file?

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Edward
