[ANSWERED] PjLink, Panasonic projectors, and a newb.
Hello, I am very new to Isadora so please keep this in mind.
I have read all of the following and applied to the best of my ability.
Mac Pro (t. can) -> Ethernet switch -> 1 Panasonic PtRz120 projector
MacBook Pro 2019 -> (same) Ethernet switch -> 4 independent Ethernet runs into Panasonic PtRz120 projectors >span class="s1">
Within my system preferences the Ethernet ports are green and say connected.
On the projectors, Direct link is on,
I am trying to use the “Send PjLink” actor to shutter the projectors via the premise command. When I press “Send” the cmd response is “connection error 60”
I tried the “PjLink” actor initially writing my own commands such as “%AVMT 10” (and other numbers featured on page 192 of the Panasonic PTRZ120 manual. I am not infront of the software as I type this)
Is there another actor i need to add?
Does anyone have a full scene screenshot of a successful PjLink to a projector fire/cue layout?
A deep grateful to you for taking the time to read this. If there are any specs I missed, questions, comments, ideas, concerns drop it below. Truly appreciate all y’all’s time. Thank
The above image contains, all I need to turn on and off my Panasonic projector.
- The top Send PJLink actor will power on the projector (this will only work when the bottom Send PJLink actor returns Zero, as seen)
- The middle PJLink actor will turn off the projector
- And the bottom PJLink actor is there to check the power status. It returns 2 while the projector is in cool down mode, and can not be turned back on.
My laptop and my projector are both plugged into my router.
My Laptop is connected using DHCP (so it get a dynamic IP address).
The projector has had DHCP turned off and I have defined a static IP address of 192.168.000.208
In the projectors network setup I also needed to add my gateway and mask, 192.168.0.1 and 255.255.255.0 respectively.
I also am not using a password on the projector at this time.
Once you setup the IP on the projector, I suggest using Terminal and ping the projector to ensure it is seen on the network.
To ping, open Terminal, and type "ping -c 5 " followed by your IP address...
eg: ping -c 5 192.168.000.208
I hope this helps you move forward. Let me know if you hit any roadblocks.
