DR Receiver Frame Settings
Select a frame in the tree view and click Settings to open a tabbed view which groups frame settings by category.
Select a tab to view or change settings.
The frame may be given a description which is helpful for identification purposes.
The behavior of the frame's front panel user interface is managed here.
- Front Panel Locked - Check this to "lock" the front panel. When locked settings may be viewed but not changed.
- Front Panel Lock Level - Choose a lock "level" from the list.
- Normal - When front panel is locked, user can unlock it in the "LOCK PANEL" menu without entering a password.
- Password - When front panel locked, user must enter a password to unlock it in the "LOCK PANEL" menu.
- Backlight Brightness - Use this to choose a brightness level
The network interface is configured here.
- IP Address - This is in "dotted quad" format. If DHCP is enabled, this is read only.
- Net Mask - This is in "dotted quad" format. If DHCP is enabled, this is read only.
- Default GW - This is in "dotted quad" format. If DHCP is enabled, this is read only.
- TCP Port - This is the Primary TCP port number, an integer in the range 0 - 65535. The Secondary TCP port number is not set directly - it is always the next number after the Primary TCP port number. The defaults are 4080 for the Primary port and 4081 for the Secondary port.
- MAC Address - this is the address of the device ethernet port, assigned at the factory. It is read only.
- DHCP Enable - this is checked if DHCP is used to assign an IP address, Netmask and Default Gateway address to the device. Uncheck this to use "static" IP addressing.
The RS232 port baud rate can be set here.
Note: Wireless Designer operates on a fixed baud rate of 57600 for RS232 connections, so the frame must be set for that baud rate for connections to succeed. If connected to the frame using the RS232 port, changing this setting to any other baud rate will cause the connection to fail!
Set the audio output format here. Output pairs may be configured as analog or AES digital types. Additional settings control the parameters for AES digital outputs.
- Audio Output Format - Choose a format from the list for each audio output pair, either Analog or AES Digital.
- Sample Rate - Choose an AES digital audio sample rate from the list, either 48kHz or 96kHz.
- Master Clock Source - Choose an AES master clock source from the list, either Local (internal) or External. External sources are connected to the AES Word Clock IN jack on the rear panel.
- Enable Clock Termination - Check this to enable an internal 75 ohm termination for the AES Word Clock OUT jack on the rear panel if external word clock is used and unit is last in the chain.
- External Clock Present - This lights to indicate presence of external word clock at AES Word Clock IN jack on the rear panel.
Control the "phantom" antenna power here. This is used to power active antennas and preamplifiers connected to the antenna ports with coaxial cable.
A "run on powerup" macro can be assigned here.
A listing of the hardware components in the receiver and the firmware programs installed in each. More than one firmware program may be installed into a component, so the component will be listed more than once.
- Type - Model number of frame or installed receiver module.
- Index - Channel number for installed receiver modules, always 0 for the frame.
- HWID - Hardware revision level of frame or installed receiver module.
- Tag - Identifies firmware programs installed into frame or receiver module.
- FW Installed - Identifies version of firmware installed into frame or receiver module.
This information is used by the Firmware Update Wizard to automatically determine which components in a receiver need firmware updates, and which firmware versions to select for each.
