DR16 mixer

Post by KevinB » Sun Jan 22, 2023 4:07 am

Where on earth can I download the Unity Mix for PC.
I have gone the Bluestacks route, but this only puts the mobile app on the screen.
Any link would be appreciated.
Thank you.

Perfect,
Thank you,
Next I have tried to update firmware via direct link with Ethernet, device not found, I’m guessing that next I should try a router using dchp, from what I read this should do it !
Unfortunately I’m not a router, Wi-Fi, Ethernet or any other kind of network engineer, so I may need some help further once I try a router in line.
I really am a starter at this Wi-Fi stuff.

I’ve attempted linking the DR16 to the router, router to the laptop and PC set up.
Nothing, I’m pulling my hair out here, a whole day wasted getting nowhere.
It doesn’t appear to want to do anything, in any direction,
I realise it’s me, and my lack of knowledge with this type of stuff,
I’m happy with the DR’s own Wi-Fi link, the built in one, but want to update firmware, which I cannot do, and want a stronger Wi-Fi signal, hence trying the router for that too.
I think I need a full small step at a time to get this nightmare sorted,
I don’t even understand the “easy set up” provided by the Asus router.
Heeeeelp !

Did the instructions starting on page 22 of the manual not work?
Manual: https://peavey.com/ItemFiles/Manual/119094_36914.pdf

Are you able to "ping" the device from your computer?

Thank you,
I’ve read and attempted everything suggested from the manual, starting at page 22,
Nothing, unit recognised, but unable to connect, I only wasted the morning this time, I give up, I’ll just use the inbuilt Wi-Fi and forget the firmware update.
Believe me, I’ve tried everything I can, in every way possible.
Sick of wasting my time now.
I guess I’ll wait till someone can come by and help, someone that understands this stuff, I just wanted to mix and make good sound, I can do that.

If you were connecting a router using cables, make sure you are not using the router port labeled "internet", usually a different color jack than the rest of the ports on the router. That port is through a network gateway so any device on it won't be able to communicate with devices on the other ports without doing a gateway configuration on your devices.

Yes, I made sure of that,
Anyway, I’m going to relax now, let my hair grow back, and collar a friend who knows about such things to help, but I’m not going to stress any more !!
Be good when it’s finally working though!
