Axia Element board

Q: In RDAdmin --> Manage hosts --> (the playout box) --> Switchers GPIO, we have one switcher defined, with a type Axia LiveWire, matrix 0. If I go into LiveWire nodes, and type in the IP address of our board, leaving port 93, and click 'View node info," nothing shows up in Sources, Destinations, GPIs and GPOs. After Exiting that dialog, and clicking in configure GPIs, nothing shows up.

A: Which IP address are you using, the one for the Mix Engine or for the Element Power Supply? You want to be using the one for the Power Supply (or GPIO node, if you're using one of those).


We finally figured out axia livewire GPIO. The secret was to look at the syslog file to see which gpio lines were mapped to which events. We weren't able to get stuff triggered through the board's gpio interface, but we added our RD channels to another GPIO node, and that worked fine in the rdadmin manage gpio interface. I had to create a new GPI node. Also, the RD channels have to be defined as "computer players" in the source profile management section of the element board config We used an ASI 6585 card with the hpi drivers. We defined two channels for our LiveWire network. We gave them unique channel numbers (say 20000 and 20001 for the sake of example) The log entries look like: Jul 15 13:04:59 hostname ripcd: GPI 0:35 ON and : Jul 15 13:05:00 hostname ripcd: GPI 0:35 OFF

Basically you close or open a GPI and then look at the log to see which one it was.



Below is what a log looks like after having configured it to execute macro cartsfor turning on and off the mic
