Hi all, new here, and cant find an option to search the forums.

 

When trying to LOAD a show via serial it goes about half way the quits with my Show Designer 1 saying Error 2. All my saves have workd fine, and this is the first time ive needed to load a txt file. I'm pretty sure its going to be serial port setting somewhere, but i have done a desk software update and that went fine.

 

Thanks

Ok. 

 

On further investigation I found that error 2 is bad data in the backup. I opened up the text files and found that in every backup I've done... The is a huge block of FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF in the files. I suspect this is the issue. 

I've tried another pc, a different serial port, cleared the desk, saved immediately after then still found the big block of FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF in the backup file of a blank desk. 

I also fed the desk the latest firmware again, and the firmware *updated* fine so the problem is not when loading, or the serial side of things, I think I have a fault when the desk is saving the show to the pc. 

Very annoying as I have over 50 hours of programming time wasted. 

I don't spose someone can have a look at their txt file and let me know if there's a big block of FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF near the end of the file please? 

 

Thanks
