E1.31 LORS4 Network issue.

Recommended Posts

I can not seem to get LOR S4 to talk friendly to my E682.  I will skip all the background on the set up unless you would like me to provide it.  I am able to control the E682, pull up the Sandevice page and run test patterns and so fort, so the hardware seems to be ok.  I believe my problem is in my software settings on S4.  I am running Multicast just like I have done in recent years.  I just can't remember what I had different in years past.  In the network preferences/DMX what should my settings be?   Adapter None, protocol DMX raw? 

 

Thanks for the help!

Ralph, I don't use Multicast, but I setup a multicast universe on my sequencing computer (then cancelled out of it without saving).  The IP is automatically entered when  you select Multicast.

Thank you Jim!  I see I failed to add the adapter IP address like you did in your example. My memory is getting bad. I better start taking more notes. Thanks again!!!

LOR is running under the control panel.  Under the LOR network program, when I change  unv 11, use E31.1 and I mark multicast, it put in a ip of 239.255.0.11.  my IP on the san device is 192.168.1.206.  do I nee to change the san device to that IP?

Nope. When setup for multicast, it inserts a dummy address.

I worked with  Ralph yesterday and we checked all the setting.  They all look correct but the LOR software still does not connect.  The network setting look correct and the San Device look correct.  I am not sure where to go next.

Good Morning!    The LOR network settings screenshot was helpful and proved that your LOR Network Preferences setting was correct. Multicast is typically the recommended setting.  You've already cleared much of your wiring by running your SanDevice tests, so we probably just need to focus on the communications between the software and your controller.   It's always the simple stuff that trips us up, so if don't mind, lets clear a few of those out quickly. 

1. What color is the square at the bottom right of your LOR SE screen when you try to connect?

2. Is your LOR network adapter connected during your test and the "Control Lights" setting under SE/Play menu checked? The software gets lonely without it even if you're not driving LOR controllers, and SE has had a tendency to turn itself off when you're not looking during partial setups.

3. Just for giggles, can you please call up one of your pixel props in SE and screen cap the universe pop-up as well as a screen cap of your SanDevice controller screen so we can compare those settings?

Do you have your channels setup right in Se, SS, or pe

Dennis we believe they are correct. Waiting on a screen shot to confirm.
