If the APC-R LED is yellow or blue, but does not appear in the status page of the Middle Control Desktop Software when connected using Ethernet, please review the following :

  • The computer running Middle Control is on the same network as your APC-R
  • Are you using a switch/direct ethernet connexion instead of a router ? Please read this.
  • The IP adress shown at the bottom of the Status page of Middle Control corresponds to your computer IP address on that network
  • If your computer is connected  to multiple wifi and ethernet networks, try connecting to only one network
  • The IP adress of your ATEM in the switcher tab is correct (if you have one)
  • The APC-R is set to DHCP. To adjust these settings, plug the APC-R to your computer using USB and in the Setup page, click on APC-R settings.
  • Check that you are running the latest version of Middle Control and your APC-R is up to date in the Setup tab.
  • If you are powering the APC-R using CANBUS only, try disconnecting and reconnecting 4-5 times and see if it shows up. If not, try and power the APC-R using micro USB and see if it shows up.
  • Try connecting your computer running Middle Contro to the network using an ethernet RJ45 cable an not Wi-Fi
