Weird issue here. I am trying to use BLCKBOOK’s TimeCode software to sync info from both my SC5000s to Pangolin Beyond. *Note I’ve contacted and am working with TimeCode, but it looks like this may be some weird hardware issue. Here is my connection:
Deck 1 → Ethernet to X1800 Deck 2 ->Ethernet to X1800 X1800 → Ethernet to PC
TimeCode only picks up Deck 1 (as named, will always refer to the PHYSICAL SC5000 and not vary as per which unit is actually displaying Deck 1). To troubleshoot, I’ve attached Deck 1 both directly to my PC and through the X1800 alone, TimeCode still picks up Deck 1. Now, when I do this with Deck 2, which is NOT showing up in TimeCode, nothing shows up at all. Even when Deck 2 is the only SC5000 connected to the “network” and renamed to Deck 1, it still doesn’t show up. Initially this sounds like a network problem right? Well here’s the kicker, first the “NETWORK” light on the front of both SC5000’s show up, including Deck 2. Second, when I attach a USB to ONLY Deck 2, so Deck 1 has no input to pull music files from, then Deck 1 can pull that info from Deck 2, which can only occur via the ethernet network connection. This tells me the players can see and get info from each other, yet the PC is not seeing only Deck 2.
This sounds like a crazy networking problem to me. Does anyone know if there is either a way to reset all the network properties on an SC5000 to see if that fixes the problem? Or if they have any other ideas?
