    Thanks. Its been a good while since I’ve had to help with one of these as they are rather old now. But the principle is essentially to patch in the instrument DL2 in your chosen operating mode.

    On the console you will need to patch in the DL2 at the start address you have assigned the DL2. Choose head, high end and then DL2. Consult the DL2 manual for the order and elements you patch in on what is essentially a profile with multiple parts that you select depending on how have the DL2 set up - its operating “mode” That should give you operational control.

    Then hook up an Ethernet cable from the DL2 via a router to your computer running the Content Management Appliction from High End. Move your content to your preferred slots that are DMX values you pick from the console to bring up your content.

    Hopefully there is someone on here with more DL2 knowledge than me - I’ve never run one personally, but we’ve had several users in the US contact us who have...email me direct and I can put you in touch.

    There is a good overview here: https://www.highend.com/support/legacy-product-information/dl-3-and-dl-2-setup-primer

    It becomes a different animal if you are using it with the axom media server rather than just CMA. Let me know and I’ll help there: that is controlled via artnet and involves patching it in and setting an up address in the media server setup in MagicQ.
