3.2.3 software DP8k issues and other things

technicktechnick Registered User
I've had 2 possible issues over the last couple of weeks using 3.2.3 on various Road Hog Full Boars

1 - when using artnet changing the artnet IP address causes the software DP8k to stop running.

2 - using an external super widget where at random moments sometimes hours apart the widget will stop receiving changes from the desk. Sometimes replugging the USB sorts this out but sometimes I have to restart the software DP8k - (it is still showing as running though)


Other issues

1 - creating a new folder when creating a new show crashes the desk.

2 - changing effects parameters has become very glitchy. Its making it hard to find nice speeds etc as the whole effect stops and restarts on a change.

    Is the DP8K Process going not responding?
    What changes are you making to the artnet setting?

    When the superwidget stops responding do you still get output from the internal widget?

    1.All I change is the Artnet IP address. Other changes do not seem to cause a problem.

    The Soft DP8K is showing as not respondng.

    2. The internal widget continues to function as normal.

    The external widget continues to output DMX but does not receive changes.

    Nick,

    My guess is you might be changing the DP8000 art-net address into different sub networks which still shouldn't be crashing the DP8000. Can you give an example of the art-net address you are changing (from X to X) and also post how many universes of broadcast and how many universe of unicast art-net you have enabled.

    Not sure what I was changing from. I suspect the default!

    Was changing to 2.0.0.101

    Was running 4 universes.

    It was a while ago... so I'm sorry if I'm being vague!

    No worries. We were just looking at this again today in the lab hoping we could chase it down. We will keep our eyes open for it.

    I've seen it on a couple of different Full Boars

    Good luck!
