I started using my miniDSP Remote with my brand new OpenDRC-DA8, and noticed that the config buttons 1, 2, 3 & 4 have no effect, whereas volume up, volume down and mute buttons work fine.

I'm currently using the latest miniSHARC 4x8 48KHz plug-in, and have not messed with the IR Remote learning function.

Any ideas as to what may be going wrong will be greatly appreciated.

It sounds like you have a USB connection now to the OpenDRC which will lock up preset selection. Make sure to unplug the USB cable and you should be all set.

Thanks for the clarification DevTeam!

Once the USB cable is unplugged the remote preset buttons work again.

I guess I'm a bit surprised by this. I was hoping to use the remote to switch presets on the fly while the OpenDRC-DA8 is in online mode with live level meters.

unfortunately it's not possible to have live change of the GUI AND remote as we'd also need to live update your active GUI on the plugin (i.e. as you change the remote, what you're seeing on the active preset you were before hand is already wrong). For that reason, to keep it simple, we just lock the IR when doing live change. If you want to toggle preset, you can easily do so from the GUI.

Thank you for the explanation.

I guess I've got used to my 2x4 HD boxes supporting preset change by miniDSP remote while operating in online mode...
