  Ethernet Controller issues
Posted by: steve1200 - 23-12-2020, 05:27 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hi Everyone, i have run into an issue with my ethernet pixel controller looking for some advice.

everything was working fine until I upgraded my internet router.
the controller was set to a static ip address and was working fine before the upgrade.
it was plugged into a 24 port switch.
after the router was upgraded the controller stopped working.
after lots of investigation i have removed the controller from my main network, its now just the PC and ethernet controller connected to a simple switch.
two connections no router, no DHCP just two devices that were on fixed IP addresses.
both devices and switch have flashing port lights

i cant ping the ip address
i cant see the device in the syncrolight device manager
i cant reset the ip address using the device manager.
its the only ethernet controller and i cant believe that i would have changed the mac address but its possible

question is - can the card be reset back to default in any way ?

  HELP!!! Showplayer and pixels
Posted by: Allan - 18-12-2020, 06:33 PM - Forum: General - Replies (4)

I bought a showplayer , dc08 and Sl-4000 pixel controller , apparently it's not the best match Sad.

Now my question is, If I throw the Sl-4000 in the bin , what pixel controller do I need to run pixel with the showplayer and dc08?

I hope I can get some help in here, a bit down about it and feel a bit lost here 

Thanks ?

  Heart beat effect
Posted by: krissprolls - 15-12-2020, 08:19 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

Hi !
For my show construction, i would like to create a heart beat effect with brightness change on all my pixels lights.

Do you have an idea for creating this effect with the less steps and adjusting easily the refresh rate of the "heart beat" to synchro it on the music rythm ?

Thanks !

  Hello & help with connecting RS485 controllers to SL-8000
Posted by: Doodley - 15-12-2020, 02:42 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

Hi all,
I'm new to syncrolight and I must say I'm really impressed with their service and support.

I wonder if anyone may be able to help me with a network connection please. I have a Sl-8000 pixel control which I have set up and controlling pixels in slave mode. I want to connect my other RS485 controller's to this by the rs485 output on the SL-8000 and keep using it as a slave control, but I can't seem to figure out how to configure the ethernet network so that the other Rs485 controllers run from the SL-8000.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
