Freeze on start up

Has anyone else had this happen with the VL64. When you start up the desk it stalls on the info page at "Main processor..." then you have to hold in the power switch then start up again...hey presto everything works. Not ideal really. :roll: This happened twice today and once yesterday. VL64 running...

Time and a Half

We had an odd one last night, all the cue times ran slowly by about half again. It wasn't just the screen delaying the output ran 1.5 seconds for 1. after the show we rebooted the desk and everything was back to normal. This is the first time I've noticed this one. :cry:

Re: Scrambled Submasters

That still happens on the OLE and VL64 running .904. Very annoying indeed.

Re: Encoder Wing Panel

I'm with you on that one John. A rotary encoder wing would save a lot of people with first generation Classics moving to other brands.

Re: 2nd screen via USB-vga

I reckon it will from having a look at the specs and I see it comes with no driver required. But I may be wrong (unusual but possible :lol: )

You'll never lose your looks

If you delete a look while it is active the only way (I think) to release the channels is to re-record the same channels on the same look number, take the look to zero then delete again. Handy enough if you only deleted one look!

Re: 2nd screen via USB-vga

No disrespect intended but buying here in Ireland the strand mark up is way over the odds, the item costs $72 (€45) in the states and I was quoted €217 to purchase it from Strand. I'm no whinger and have always been a Strand person but that price is ludicrous....sorry

Re: 2nd screen via USB-vga

After a great deal of messing, due to trouble shipping electronic goods direct from american suppliers, I finally found the USB to VGA recommended by Robert Bell on http://www.cooleststuff.co.uk/WsProduct ... &BPID=4445

Re: 2nd screen via USB-vga

Hi folks I got the dualhead graphics adapter and whilst it works well the downside is it takes a bit of messing to get the resolution right and the command prompts are all split between the 2 screens making it well nigh impossible to use. Also whichever way you set it up there is always at least one...

Re: Highlight

I find it very handy when flashing through the rig for numbering, select your first fixture, hit highlight then just use the next or previous keys to merrily trudge through the plot.
