  • I had this problem the other day on a show with two networked FB desks and it does not just go away by pressing a choose button a few times. I had to reboot both desks to fix it, not really the thing you want to do during a show.
  • For some reason I thought it did... Maybe that was another desk I was thinking of, but either way not fun repatching multiple universes
  • I just updated a clients machine with the latest build and am having the same exact issue. When I merge the old show into the new one, my patch is gone. How can I get the patch back in from the older version?
  • Fleenor makes a unit that lets you run cues on an LSE from DMX via the serial port.
  • I do not see why enabling control over encoders and at least ONE playback fader over OSC can possibly impact their bottom line in any way. You are paying for hardware (single universe widget at minimum), adding just those few elements of external co…
  • Yes, but WYG R22 is old software, they are up to R28 now. Hog3 and roadhog are current technology products, if you want to use them then you need the latest or a more recent version of WYG. No way around this. **I happen to see a lot of people c…
  • OK-I saw the odd CTC defaults and now changed them to slot 1(open) Still having the issue in programmer and all related lists. Don't think anything has been merged in the show, but the file has been in use forever, so who knows... Good to hear …
  • I just noticed a similar issue with my VL2500 Spots. If I select a color on the slotted wheel and press Knockout, they stay in that color. All other functions are fine, CMY as well. Also I have an effects stack that just deals with the slot wheel a…
  • Have you tried using VLANs to segregate your hog network traffic?
  • Whoa! When did that little feature pop up? Moving those bars was such an ordeal, now easy as pie!
  • Of course, but there are more keystrokes involved that way, especially if you want to skip around a large list.
  • Definitely looks like the keyboard is transposing by 2 octaves. I just used MIDI triggers on 3.2.2 with note 0 triggering a playback bar flash button and I had no issues.
  • That's good to know, glad that more devices are supported. So any USB controller that is class-compliant should work then? I have a few that I can try out, I will post results...
  • I can confirm on the RH, MIDI notes and MSC are OK, haven't tested MTC.
  • Oh- that's not good. I just ordered a new Uno for a big show coming up that is all MIDI triggers. Short of trying to source an older Uno, are any other interfaces known to work well with RH and latest build?
  • Hm, I just opened the Parked window and instead of intensity % value, I see 0s timing values?!?
  • Many of us are having the same issue, HES is aware of this.
  • Michael- I have had the same exact (and almost constant now) issues with the showfile I sent you, cues get 'stuck' in the cuelist window while they advance just fine in the playback bar.
  • That sounds familiar! I did change pages and then triggered scenes afterward, and I did open the scenes directory on startup, makes total sense now. So yes I believe that is it. --Actually now that I think of it, I did have Scene 1 autorun on …
  • OK, showfile is on its way. I can't really say that there is one specific action that is causing the issue. I believe it happens more during playback, sometimes even when idle. I thought it was triggering scenes, but I can't get it to fail consiste…
  • Running 3.2.1 on a Road Hog with 1.8.0 xpe
  • I just sent the latest dump file plus log to Chris. So far the issues I am seeing: -Cuelist window does not follow active cue -Scenes buttons status gets stuck (have to click on it twice to clear) -Scenes seem to be causing the playback crash. …
  • And now the cuelist window for the chosen master does not show cue position, and does not advance, although the cues do change and I can see the cues in the playback bar change as well. Rebooting the desk did clear this up earlier today, but now it…
  • Looks like I spoke too soon, now it's back to the playback process crashing fairly frequently (3x today). I can't find a common activity that causes this. Also for some reason I cannot trigger scenes, it acts like Guard is activated. An even newer …
  • To add a little update, I have disabled all the artnet outputs and the console has been more stable. I did have the playback process die during rehearsal on me the other day. Restarting the process suddenly launched several playback masters on my e…
  • No comment macros, but in the DP8000 processor settings window, the first 12 universes are checked under Broadcast and all have 255.255.255.255 as destination.
  • OK, uploaded dump files to your email address.
  • Marcin, that is not correct. If you use an Enttec ODE Artnet to DMX box with a DP8000 then you can get an extra universe. You cannot use a USB to DMX interface from any manufacturer other than FPS to get DMX from Hog3 PC using the USB port.
  • Allan I would check all the data cabling as it looks like you are running into a lot of problems stemming from someone thinking in terms of audio instead of lighting. Y-split is definitely an issue and there is probably a lot of mic cable running ar…
  • I have a quick question with the Fade Master comment macro, does it fade to specified level using the default timing or is it a fixed rate?
  • I disagree about MIDI notes being a last resort. For someone who is just figuring out how to trigger cues, note based triggers are a hell of a lot easier and less complex to implement than MTC. Drop a note where you want and you're done. If someone…
  • First off, are you on Hog PC or a console? You can trigger either MSC commands or MIDI note on messages (version 3.1.7 and above). Using notes to trigger cues is much simpler in an environment like Logic. You add your notes to a MIDI track in Logic…
  • Gotcha, forgot about the playback bar mapping, I was only thinking comment macros. Right then, thanks!
  • So I did a full 1.6.0 restore again and the external monitor worked for a bit and now it doesn't. Could this be a driver timing issue? Is the IOGear driver on the xpe image or with the hog3pc software? This is most frusrating and I'd like to find a…
  • I am having the same problem here after updating my xpe image. I just did a full restore via USB to 1.6.0 from 1.3.0 an upgraded to 3.1.9 (from 3.1.6 under the original 1.3 xpe) and the IOgear VGA adapter will not work now. I think I have the older…
  • Whoops, sorry, I didn't notice you were looking for a Hog 2 profile.
  • Hey Steve, check out this thread:
  • Cormac, I believe the silence you are hearing on this subject possibly could be indicative of a problem in H3 software that is so deeply rooted that it may be impossible to implement without having to start over from scratch. Just my $.02USD, but i…
  • Marty, off the top would you say it is comparable to VL3.5k or MacIII?
  • I now have this problem as well. H3PC will not gracefully quit and hangs with the Kill/Wait dialog box when running under VMWare Fusion (latest build) and Hog 3.1.6 Marc- I agree that it is not good for a live show, but it is handy when you are c…
  • Thank for the clarification, Brad. I am curious as to the logic behind why it creates extra cues that are not originally recorded. I can't for the life of me see any useful purpose of the extra cues during a merge operation. This became a problem wh…
  • Just Merge without Record. "Merge 1>9 Enter"
  • You know, I haven't tried it, since the manual never mentions that behavior. It tells me that when you clone content, everything on the destination servers is deleted and replaced. Yes, I am adding content to the end of what is already there so th…
  • Yes you can do that. You'd need a RS485 transceiver like the MAX485 and write some code to scale the incoming audio signal into DMX values and it will work. If you want to use it in conjunction with the hog or other console, then you'd need to get a…

  • You can get really complicated and figure out a way to program an Arduino to listen for specific frequency peaks and have it send a MSC command to trigger a cue on the hog. The problem with this is you can't really get a good intensity scale that fo…

  • Didn't APC buy out MGE?
  • You need a fairly recent XPe image that has the USB VGA drivers, I think it's 1.4.0. If you have that it should just work. I try to give the VGA adapter its own dedicated USB port out of the console, and I haven't had the need to use the external p…
  • I don't think fade changes is the culprit, as with those Elation fixtures, the Lamp OFF function has a higher DMX value than the Lamp ON function. Try making a cuelist that only lamps on the fixtures and see if you get the same problem when you rel…
  • I use cue only all the time on TV productions and theater, so this is significant. Using the next cue out time is a very good way to handle this. I don't believe that changing this will cause a big problem with existing shows. It is much easier to…
  • I have noticed a lot of improvements across the board with the latest version of VMware. I'm willing to bet that is the issue since Fusion is up to version 3.0 now.
