Thanks for the add - looking at trying out Companion

Cheers,
Ade

Hi Andy,

So far, really happy with the SCP module. I have a some questions.

Can multiple laptops be connected to the network all running companion with the SCP module?

Can companion with the SCP module connect to a remote instance over the internet and if so which ports would need to be opened?

I’m using the instance feedback InCh/Label/Name to grab the name from a QL and put it on a SD button. The name is grabbed and displayed on the SD but changes back companion defined name while the button is activated. Is there a way for the SD button to display the QL name constantly?

Thanks!

Happy to hear that. Thank you for saying.

Should be able to, but I haven’t really tested. The # of connections to the console may be limited though by design. You can however have multiple Streamdecks connected to companion, and of course any number of web-buttons/tablet buttons accessing a single computer running companion.
Give it a try and write back!

Yep. Port 49280.

Sounds like a bug. Can you send me a screen capture, details of how to reproduce the problem, and your companion config export?

Thanks Andy. I’m with a QL again on Tuesday and I’ll get back to after that.

Ok, but you can send the config file anytime…

I have two instance feedback commands

It looks like the second command overrides the first, which I guess is by design. Also, name feedback reflects on the SD when I edit the name on the desk but doesn’t change with a scene recall that includes a name change. Where should I send the file to?

You can re-order the feedback commands, not sure if that makes it better or worse. Once I see your config I’ll have a better idea of what happens.
Values are not sent when scenes change natively on the Yamaha desks, but let me see if there’s a way to poll the data within the module.

Where should I send the file to?

.zip it up and attach it here. If you don’t want others to see it for some reason, you can send it to andy@checkcheckonetwo.com.

You said earlier:

Is this still giving you trouble?

Config file attached. It’s page 99!

Yes swapping around made it worse but the functionality is still good enough as it is now.

I don’t see any buttons with Channel Name feedback on page 99. Are they somewhere else?

I recreated that button, and added polling for feedback updates on scene changes.
Not sure how the “order of feedback” will work now, but I have a test version you can try. Are you on Mac or Windows?

Ah, sorry I must’ve deleted that command. Pretty sure it was set up as per the jpeg ‘InCh/Label/name then InCh/ToMtrx/ON’. I’m on Windows, though it’s going to be a few days before I get access to a desk again.

Thanks!

No problem, I’ll try and update the module on here so you can download it when you’re ready.

would love to download your companion build, have to earn trust points though? … aaaaaand trust!
