For 2-way comms on the PEQ software you do need to correctly setup the ISO software but i don't believe it is necessary for the HD Suite functionality.
WHen I update all, it just wipes out the input names and doesn't show how the ADA is configured. I can control volume, mode, test tones, etc. but it seems only to get the unit to respond to commands, it will not send back any information. Certain things it will not let me change. I think it just is not "talking back" to the software. I had my son try the iso software to identify unit but we had no luck with that. Just as an FYI, when you all look on your network for those who have it hooked up, do you see an IP address.....I don't. It is weird becasue it will accept off, volume, mute, noise commands in any of the three configurations I used...which is direct with crossover cable, using a dedicated router, with just the PC and the Suite, and then on the network. On all three I can control volume etc so I know the unit is receiving commands but I cannot change inputs, change names of inputs etc. One weird thing is that if I for example change the center speaker to none, it will not highlight the change in the software, but it will turn off the center speaker. The unit just does not seem to be "talking" to the software, just responding to certain commands.
P.S. This is the beta version of the Suite 7.1 software for windows 7. I have also tried the old version with my old XP computer but same results (although I was able to change the name of the input, but not change inputs and it would not "update all"). I am hoping this is a simple problem to fix and not something actually wrong with the unit. As of now, unless I go through the mind numbing process on the front panel, I can't adjust the levels, distances, and various input parameters although I can run the test tones (just not adjust). Pretty frustrating.
