  • I tried several different sequences and I am not able to get it working correctly. I am using the latest build v2.4.0 (b805). I do not know if the console platform makes a difference or not but I am using a RH4. I discovered a few other odd things d…
  • Thanks for trying all the sequences. I will double check what I was trying to do when I get back to the console. If it is working for you I must be missing something.
  • Do you still get that behavior if you do not press Clear between switching kinds? Using your example if you: 1 thru 5 Use the Kind key with P/T separated to touch Pan (assume that Tilt does not get touched) 6 thru 10 Select the Fixed Kind (position …
  • Part of the problem with the Nano mode is that it should have split into 2 options. One of them would control the front panel's 5 to 4 encoder transition and the other to control the change in the Hog window behavior. If you use 2 external touch scr…
  • I recently bought a RH4 (still in the box from mid-Feb) and I have to agree with the general views of the case. It is awkward (handle, wheels, etc.). It does have a storage area under the console that measures roughly 18" x 12" x 3.625". One of t…
  • Ben thanks for the great post. I will start using your steps right away. Kevin Montagne kevin (at) litkam (dot) com
  • I like the idea of an easier way to release scenes when using virtual playback than holding the scene button down and pressing release. There is comment macro (RS) that allows a release of a scene act like a command. I would love it if there was som…
  • Thanks for the tip Marc. That will come in handy. Kevin Montagne

  • I upgraded my console to 3.1.1 and no problems. Before the upgrade I could only work on my show for 30-45 minutes before starting to see the problem. I did a 2 day show this weekend and it worked without a hitch. Thanks, Kevin
  • It turns out that my problem is related to the bug where resources are being chewed up by keeping the cuelist window open. This then causes a long lag between some button pushes and their action. I was not being patience enough to actually determine…
  • Sometime back Quinn provided some app that provided some controls that allowed the encoders to be used easier via a tablet pc.
  • Very nice work.
  • +1 here too. It would be a good time saver. -- Kevin Montagne
  • What about extending that even further in that it "locks" the masters together where if you press the Play, Flash or other button on one it is like pressing all in the locked group at the same time. They could then stay locked together for either th…
  • One good way to approach this type of situation is to use a different PAGE for each dance. That way you can record each page (dance) in any order. You can then reorder them for the show order and just press Next Page as you move from dance to dance.…
  • I posted a very similar request
  • Thanks Quinn! That helps a great deal. If you do not mind sharing could you explain how it works? Thanks, Kevin Montagne kevin (at) litkam (dot) com
  • I can confirm that I have followed the same steps and have had the problem. I have had it with new shows and pre-3.0 shows. I have had it happen on XP and Vista. My XP machine is single core and my Vista machine is a dual core Athlon. But I agree th…
  • I am experiencing a similar problem with the on-screen playback controls. I cannot record to them or get the blue light to come up on them. This is on XP SP3. I have rebooted several times since installing v3.0. This problems occurs with or without …
  • Kenneth, There are several companies out there with backlit LED keyboards. I have one from Deck (
  • I own a Super Widget, 2 Hog III upgraded widgets, a programming and playback wing. I have placed a about a dozen or so widgets in installs recently -- all churches by the way. I usually loan/rent the single widgets out for a few weeks/months to let …
  • Joe, I looked at the Hog Box but I wanted to include the PC, UPS, touchscreens, switch, etc. in one case. I still want to be able place it on a table and use it like the Hog Box. I am thinking about a side by side rack setup of 12U each with all …
  • It seems to be working fine for me now. It may have been that the first time I set up a Hog 3 PC installation it did not save the window position. After that it seemed to work OK. It may have been operator error but I have seen it on several install…
  • I had the same thing happen to me last weekend too using the most current version of Hog3PC. I could not find where I was editing it. Closed all windows and still had the error. I had to restart Hog3PC to be able to continue. Luckily this was during…
  • Thanks Marty for the response. It is comforting to know I was not missing something. It is even more comforting that we may see this and similar features soon. --Kevin
  • I 2nd the idea of a "standby" macro. I often want to just pre-position a master on a cue so the next Go for that master plays the right cue. In fact, I usually want to do this across several masters so I can press the Go buttons at the right timing …
  • Brad I am not sure if you intended this thread to turn into a poll of XYZ position usage but I thought I would throw out my view. I used the Hog 2 stuff for a couple of years before the Hog 3 came out. I never really used the XYZ position feature…
  • Another possibility is water drops on the touch screens. I had this happen an outdoor Christmas dress rehearsal last Thursday night. The fog rolled in and the dew began to set everywhere. I don't know about the ones imbedded in the Hog iPC but my (2…
  • On the USB bus issue, I neglected to mention that I added a PCI 4-port USB card (about $30) to the above described box. I run the wings & super widget on it and the touch screens, keyboard, UPS and any USB drives on the one built in to the PC mo…
  • Below is my dedicated Hog3PC setup. I just used it this weekend with a rented Expansion Wing. I love the X-Wing -- I just wish it was not so expensive compared to the smaller playback wing. To ensure stability, I have not changed anything other t…
  • Brad, thanks for the reply. I am talking about the different modes on a single parameter wheel. I looked at the Wheelset Editor and wanted to make sure I was not missing something. I like Lee's suggestion of having the Programmer remember the indivi…
  • Ross, both Vectorworks & ESP Vision have student priced versions. The VW version is considerably less than the retail price and the Vision price is reduced as well. Give them both a call or check out their websites -- although I don't think the …
  • When using Hog3PC the Hog software does not know anything about the touchscreens. They are just input devices to Windows. If you have appropriate Elo drivers installed and the touch screens work fine outside of Hog3PC they should work fine with Hog3…

  • Tom, I think additive pages is a great idea! Count my vote for it. The interface you described seems like it would work well and be intuitive. Thanks, Kevin Montagne kevin (at) litkam (dot) com
  • Tom. I think that is a great idea. I would love to see that as a new feature. It would really help on those complicated structured cuelists. You should be able to see the real world values as well as palletes, etc. like the other views. -- Kevin…
  • Tom, I too come from a large scale highly-available software design background. I believe the problem Jan is addressing by having the DP make the decision instead of the server is to avoid what is commonly referred to as a "split brain" situation. T…
