Mixing Showtime units with PC units ???

I'm pretty sure this has been covered somewhere but I'm going to ask it anyway.
Is it o.k. to mix a showtime controller with PC controllers? Is there any reason why I wouldn't want to do this?

I am the new proud owner of a showtime controller and am planning to add PC controllers to keep the cost down unless someone talks me out of it.

Thanks for your time,
Tom

Hi Tom,

I use 2 of the showtime controllers with 6 of the pc controllers in the same network and everything works just fine. I bought the two showtime controllers last year as a start up kit and have been buying the pc kits ever since because I have some wierd obsession with soldering! :-)

I could be wrong, but I think the only difference between the two other than the abvious box itself is that you cannot install the director card in the pc kits, which isn't a big deal to me.....not yet anyway.

I hope this helps you out a little!

Even with the director card not mounting in the case with the PC controller, the PC series still works with the director just fine. You just need to provide it a separate case.

Well it wont be me......I have 9 PC controllers and hope to get number 10 in the June/July sale. I to want to have 1 ShowTime controller with the build in MP3/director for my interactive display.

I will have 6-9 sequences that people on the outside can choose from. They can push a button, or voice activate a sequence of their choice. I have a mini director too and so that should give me the 9 buttons I will need to do what I want to do.

Other wise I will buy 1 more PC controller but buy 1 or 2 DCMP3 player/director units and have maybe 15 sequences for the people to choose from.

Number 10 controller will be a spare in case one of the controllers go berserk.
