Pandoras Box 6.1.1

Dear customers,

we're happy to share the new Pandoras Box V6.1.1 with you.

This version fixes various issues but especially improves the behavior of Multi-User setups and Art-Net handling.

In MU scenarios DMX devices as well as (the new) TCP device or Widget Devices will behave similar to regular site. This means they will “manifest” onto the Main system and will not send out any data from Sub-Managers. Therefore the Art-Net output on Sub-Managers can be activated, but no value will be send. In the event of a “takeover” the new Main Manager will establish all TCP connections and start to send Art-Net if specified in the configuration. Doubled Art-Net output is prevented the same way as TCP or WD commands are not send twice anymore.

Unpatching all devices from a universe will free the universe as PB will not continue to send zero values anymore.

Known issues:

• Preview needs to be activated on Sub-Managers to follow playlist entries
• several playlist related issues in MU scenarios
• Preview needs to be activated on Sub-Managers in order to update editable resources like Meshes and Canvases
• possible crash when changing sample rate of Dante PCIe card
• some Win10 systems seem to need a newer dongle driver - please download here: ... 8/file-317
• Mute audio checkbox does not work
