    Question QM32 and QM2000 sync?

    Hi all
    Its possible to control or synchronize a QM32 with a QM2000?
    Any easy way?
    They are in different computers.(both on the same network).
    And both I'm controlling it with PC Anywhere.(for now, no good sync)
    Thanks in advance
    Cheers,
    Eduardo
    PS I just want to put some beams in sync with a satellite PJ with the QM2000.

    software SDK or use the QM32 TTL to trip a dmx input card and send the DMX "go" signal to the 2000.

    other way,

    Send smpte audio sync to a decoder (Pangolin sold/sells them) at the qm32 end.

    Cheesy way

    rig dmx, relay across mouse switch.

    Hi Steve
    Thanks for your help.
    Im gone try the QM32 TTL to trip a dmx input card and send the DMX "go" signal to the 2000.
    But this mean that the QM32 is controlling the QM2000?
    But If I understand well, can I send a DMX signal from the QM2000 to trip a relay, and to the TTL input in the QM32 to start the show right?
    Cheers,
    Eduardo

    I'll need to fire up my QM32, but the showtime command is "port" and you need to configure it for input.
    Make sure the level from the card is true TTL and clamped to less then 5V.

    This sounds like a job for a Northlight systems decoder or one of Daves DMX relays.

    Hi Steve
    You are right, no easy option.
    I'm thinking in Daves DMX relay board, and a 7805 PSU, or has to be less than 5V?
    And QM32 controlling the QM2000 (Is more easy?).I think not.
    I find the command "port" and configure it for input y extend this all the show in a new track, and then what? to start.
    I'm gone try manually with a switch and 3 x 1.5V Battery pack,
    Is making 4.6Volts. You think is ok?
    Thanks and cheers,
    Eduardo
