I've been trying to setup a legacy system in our summer house over the weekend, with no joy.

(1) 568.2mm
(2) DSP420s front left and right
(3) SW5500 subwoofer

I used the legacy configuration program (what a nightmare), but when came time to upload the configuration on the 568.2, I had a few error message about communication to the DSP420s, and it ultimately failed to load anything on he 568.

It still plays somehow, I only have one TV connected to Optical 1 input of the 568, but the level of the SW5500 sub-woofer doesn't seem to adjust to the overall level of the speakers, it stays constantly pretty loud.

I'm thinking updating all the gear to the latest firmware first (no idea if they are up-to date), and give it another go. Unless someone would like to suggest something else?

Sounds like the DSP sub is not getting comms. Is there a comms return from the DSP420's?

mmm no, I connected the sub to the second DIN com from the G68...
Would it work if I connect both DSP420s and the sub to a 511 slave patch?

Hi Take comms from one of your DSP420 to the SW5500 then from SW5500 to second DSP420,

Regards

IIRC the SW5500 cannot be a master speaker, it can only work as a slave so would need to be daisy chained off a master speaker.

Do you have a master speaker in the system? I'm not sure how these things work with the in-walls.


Wonderful perfect quadraphonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep smile

Yes, one of the DSP420 is set as the master. As suggested, I will go from the 568 to the DSP420 "master", then to the sub, then to the DSP420 "slave".

Thank you for the help

I would think that if you have the wherewithall and the skills, it would never be a bad idea to check and upgrade the firmware to the latest available. But I’m no expert. But I’d like to be. Sorry to nudge a bit off topic, but what OS does one use to do the legacy configuration? And/or the firmware updates. Windows XP? Will XP pro work?

Legacy config will work with Win 10.


Thanks, Edd

Oh, thanks. Someone somewhere said I needed to go back to XP. Good to know. Same for firmware updates on 5 series components? I know the Legacy DSP’s were on EPROMs and physically need changed.
