DR Receiver Channel Settings

Right click a channel to open the channel menu.

Several options are shown here:

Choose Settings... to open the Edit Channel Settings dialog.

Shortcut - double clicking a channel also opens the Edit Channel Settings dialog.

 

 

Navigation Buttons

These let you browse back and forth through channels without leaving the Edit Channel Settings dialog once you have opened it..

If a frame icon is selected in the tree view then you can browse only the channels in that frame. If the Session icon is selected in the tree view you can browse through all channels in all frames in the session.

Channel settings are divided into two tabs, one for the receiver settings and another for the transmitter settings.

Receiver Tab

This is the place to view and configure the channel's receiver settings. A mini activity display allows you to monitor the channel while making changes.

Frame Status

This area provides information about the channel's frame. The frame's name and serial number are displayed along with a thumbnail view of the location and status of installed modules.

Receiver Settings

This group holds general receiver settings.

Controls:

Receiver Audio Settings

This group holds receiver module audio settings.

Controls:

Channel Status

Monitors channel activity when connected to receivers.

The meters and indicators are described in the DR Channel Monitor topic.

Transmitter Tab

This is the place to view and configure the channel's transmitter settings as well as transfer an encryption key to it. A mini activity display allows you to monitor the channel while making changes.

Note: When an RF link is established between a channel's receiver and its associated transmitter, transmitter settings and status data are passed over the link along with the audio signal.  When Wireless Designer is connected to a receiver, the Transmitter tab shows this information in read only mode. If the RF link is "down", then the information shown only reflects the last known state of the transmitter, or default values if no link existed.

Here we see the read only view of settings received from the transmitter over the RF link.

Transmitter settings may be configured in this tab and passed to the transmitter, but only when the transmitter is powered up and connected to the frame with the key transfer cable. To do this, the following steps must be taken in order:

  1. Enter the transmitter settings edit mode.
  2. Get the current settings from the transmitter.
  3. Edit the settings.
  4. Send the settings back to the transmitter.
  5. Exit the transmitter settings edit mode.
