Update Palette from PC networked to iPC = Crash

Hog3PC running on laptop connected wirelessly to Hognet
Show server running on iPC
both using v2.5.0

With iPC outputting a single cuelist to stage, I logged into show with PC. I brought a couple Mac250's into the PC's programmer and adjusted position. Clicking "update" causes Hog3 on PC to crash (all windows close / disappear). I tried twice and was repeatable. If instead of using "update", I use "record position..." everything is fine.

As a side question: even though the PC crashes, the show server on iPC retains the commands from the PC programmer - which doesn't override the iPC programmer, but it does override the cuelist. Is there any way for me to release those commands using the iPC? I found that I had to log back into the show with the PC, grab the fixtures and parameters that were in the programmer when it crashed, then press clear for the show server to release them.

Thanks.

    I too have had the same issues many times. I believe it happens when either the connection between the 2 consoles either gets too slow or drops out and then it kicks the PC offline. Sometimes though I can't even log back online with the PC which means I can't grab the lights to release them out of the programmer. In turn, I have to restart the server console which takes way too long.

    I think a feature which would really help this problem out would be a way to release a console connection from the server which would clear out any fixtures in the programmer of that console. Or at least have it so if a console either drops offline or disconnects it would transfer the contents of the programmer to the server console or a selected console. It would be cool if you go to disconnect a client it would ask you to either clear the programmer or transfer it to a console of choice. And if the connection drops, the server automatically takes over or maybe a preference setting of where to send it.

    And on a side note, come to think of it, it did crash the other day for me when I tried updating a cuelist through my tablet.. I will try it again when I get a chance.. But all the other stuff would be great if implemented..
