Maintenance Notification Updated: Jul 4, 2018 7:52:36 AM
A new feature has been released in Technology Manager (TM) that provides real-time status of satellite receivers that are connected to the facility zone, programmed with a static IP address, and setup in TM. Information will be coming out soon regarding how to properly setup receivers to see their status, but for now, most receivers will have an "unresponsive" status associated to them. Receivers in this state do not require additional troubleshooting or support.
So my question is... Does anyone have 2 ports coming into their Satellite Closet to accommodate doing the streaming on the regular network and hooking the satellite up to the Facility zone? What exactly will the plan be, do I have to start managing cables back and forth between facility zone an end user zone and then back again for my webcasts? Sometimes I wonder if any thinks all this stuff through. I realize this is likely not an issue for the meetinghouses built recently, but good grief, having the FM group run a single cable to the satellite cabinet took in some cases, YEARS to get done.
