    Hi guys, I need some help with an installed iDR.
    So we have a semi permanent venue install near the Sydney Opera House.
    I have installed an iDR-16 with a PLnet fader board to be the ‘basic’ sound system. When we mix bands or need a better control solution, we just take in a surface and/or and xDR. Concept works a treat!
    However we are having serious issues with the iDR.
    First iDR died and had to have its main board replaced.
    Second one now is occasionally booting up with the PLnet controller having a RED main LED, meaning ‘no connection’!

    My only thought right now is that the iDR is not liking being just ‘turned off’. But I am unaware of any shut down procedure from the iDR or the surface from that matter. (the surface shutdown/powerdown button only powerdowns the surface!)

    Please let me know your thoughts…

    Current stock:
    2x T112, 1x T80, 2x R72, 2x iDR-48, 3x iDR-16, 2x xDR-16
    4x Dante Cards, 3x ACE Cards

    no shutdown procedure for iDR, only for the surface.

    Hi, did you check the temperature inside the IDR? Perhaps built into a rack or similar with high pressure drop causing no airflow thru the IDR?? …Even if the fan is running does not necessarily mean there is enough airflow. Another thought…did you check the mains supply voltage?

    I’ve been shutting down at the breaker panel or powerbar for the better part of 2 yrs now and no issues with idr32…..I would agree with Mike, have you checked the mains voltage, perhaps you could use a conditioned power source (furman).

    Hi gents, thanks for your replies. I’m getting the log files from the iDR today to send to A&H.
    I like the idea of a power conditioner to see if that helps….
