Trying to set up Nuendo Live to record from a QL5.  DVS on a Windows 10 laptop, connects fine to the QL5, DVS appears in the Nuendo Live Setup Device List page, Dante patching done through Controller for recording from the QL5, Nuendo Live does record individual tracks.  I installed the 64-bit version of Yamaha Console Extension (V2.0.0), seems to have installed correctly.  Other information that may be relevant: laptop has auto IP of 169.254.127.xxx, , DVS is 3.7.4.2, QL5 firmware is 3.11.

Two issues:

In Nuendo Live's Project menu, the 'Get Track Name/Color from Connected Console' menu item is disabled (supposedly provided by the Yamaha Console Extension).  Anyone gotten this to work on a Windows 10 PC?

In the Nuendo Live page on the QL5, the active channels do not appear in the Nuendo Live meters at the top of the page, and none of the record functionality works with Nuendo Live active with an empty project.

Have you gotten it working on Win7? It's been flaky for me on any version of Windows, but I haven't specifically tried Win10.

I don't have a Win7 PC on which to try it.  Thanks for the tip in the link, I tried that technique (using a 169.254.xxx.xxx network IP address for the QL5), but no joy there either.

So following the instructions of the Yamaha techs, I have:
1. Turned off the Windows firewall
2. Uninstalled the Avast virus scanner and shields
3. Uninstalled DVS, Controller, Nuendo Live and the Yamaha Console Extension
4. Re-flashed the QL5 firmware (reinstalling v3.11)
5. Reinstalled DVS, Controller, Nuendo Live and the Yamaha Console Extension

No joy.  The next step is beg, borrow, or steal another laptop, shut that Windows firewall off, uninstall whatever virus scanner, install DVS, Controller, Nuendo Live and the Yamaha Console Extension, and importune all the gods for a favorable result.  If that works, then my current laptop becomes the hopped-up bookkeeping machine.  Woooo.

Hi Kirby,

I'm new here, and relatively new on the Yamaha CL-5. I've seen what I think is a similar situation on the setup at my church occasionally. I looked over everything you've tried, and I didn't see one thing that I've tried. On our setup, we're actually  running Nuendo Live on a Mac Mini, and occasionally have similar malfunctioning problems to yours, (loss of console control of Nuendo, not carrying over track names, and so forth. What seems to reliably work for me, is to enter the Dante setup window, within Nuedo Lives' control window on the console, then, in there, is a choice of what IP address is to be used (for Nuendo communication to the computer, I think). When arriving before service in the morning, I'll select the "Use the assigned IP address" button every time, and this has reliably has resulted in control, names and track colors all getting carried over to the new session. Hope this helps!

Use the assigned IP address button


Thanks John.  Actually tried that too.  The current thinking from Yamaha's tech support is that it's a Windows 10 issue, so I'm scrounging for a Windows 8.1 laptop.  I'm more than a little surprised Yamaha hasn't tried the whole QL/CL-Dante-Nuendo Live set-up with a Windows 10 box.

They have.  My guess is they can't make it work, either.

WRT Windows firewall, Steve MacAtee at Rane told me once (while troubleshooting a connectivity/control issue with one of their boxes) that turning Windows firewall off, doesn't really turn it all the way off. In that instance, the fix was to go into Win firewall and enter two Rane programs under the exception list. In your case I have no idea what the programs would be (in my case, it wasn't DragNet, but two underlying programs), but this might at least be a line of inquiry to pursue.
Good luck, and remember, they're not consoles...just computers with faders and pretty lights on the front and XLR's on the back.
Best,
Ike

Success (with Windows 8.1).

Up and running correctly on a Windows 8.1 laptop after re-flashing the Dante firmware.  Still have to have Windows firewall turned off, even with all the Dante apps and Nuendo Live explicitly named in the firewall exception list. Happy dance.
