Export cuelist to a PRO Mk2

Post by dansemkiw » Mon Jan 11, 2021 4:43 am

Hey guys,

New to the forum.

We're using D-Pro to create cuelists which we export to a DMX Pro MK2 in standalone mode. After downloading the cuelist to the Pro MK2, we export show files using Pro Manager then upload them as needed.

We have a number of cuelists which comprise of single cues and have been experiencing issues when downloading them to the Pro MK2 when loop count = loop forever. The show time shows as a high value and the show will not play and cannot be exported to a file. The error in the Pro Manager is as follows:

Exception in thread Thread-36:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "threading.pyo", line 801, in __bootstrap_inner
File "threading.pyo", line 754, in run
File "lib\model\file_io.pyo", line 515, in read_show_packets
TypeError: argument 1 must be string or buffer, not dict

To resolve this we've included at least 2 identical cues in the list. Is there a best practice for exporting single cue lists to a Pro MK2 when we want them to continuously loop?

Thanks in advance.
