setInput unrecognized command


Recommended Posts

Ready "6.1.6" "WATCHPOINT" "Windows" true

authenticate 1

setInput "CVol" 1 1000
Error 7 0 "Unrecognized command: setInput"

I'm trying to control my setup as follows. Other commands like gotoControlCue and run work fine, but I can't get this one to work.

Any clues?

Thanks in advance.

PS: I know we are some versions behind but updating is not an option since this is controlled by the IT department.

The show is already loaded since the command is sent directly to the visualization computer. As stated before, other commands do work.

There is an input labeled CVol.

Also, the error is referencing the function setInput, which seems to be causing it, not the parameters of the command.

Take a new empty show, create an input "x" and send your command to this new show. I'm sure that there is a typo somewhere since the command setInput (capital I) definitely works. We're doing this very often and it never failed.

When in doubt I usually use PuTTY to test my commands first before using a "real" show control system.
