I've just finished teching a show on a somewhat cranky Microvision, and discovered (the hard way) that when re-recording a cue, the default cue number is often the next cue, not the cue on the faders. It's as if one had keyed [Record] [+] instead of just [Record]. This happens occasionally with Record and almost always with Track. It seems to only happen in Stage.
Does anyone know if this is a bug, a quirk of the software, or a possible short between the Track and + buttons?
I have heard of this on very rare occasions. A couple of questions for you... Are you running v1.33 software? It was the last version available for the console. Also, are you using DD diskettes? I know these are impossible to find but I have seen MV console act odd or even act as though they are running macros because of reading from a HD diskette. If you can't find DD disks, make sure the disk is formatted on the console before recording shows to it.
There could also be a hardware issus but I think this would be the more unusual case. Let me know about the above.
I know that this is months too late, but having programmed many, many shows on a Microvision FX, I can assure you that this is a very common error, even in software version 1.33. What seems to trigger it is going from "Stage" to "Blind" and then back to "Stage," at which point the prompt in the upper right corner will read one cue ahead of the cue actually onstage.
