Re: Does APCC 1.8.0.2 update disable encoders?

Hi Michael,

This seems to happen occasionally with users - it would seem a nice enhancement and reduce the support load
for AP if APCC checked for the minimum version of firmware required for a given APCC release and report a
warning if the firmware is too old.
We are discussing this option. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi guys,
I'm wondering whether upgrading to APCC 1.8.0.2 disables encoders from an older version?
Please see screen capture:


I didn't realize the encoder was disabled until I looked at the AE tab. And that was after the upgrade.
Which then begs the question as to whether my encoders were disabled before the upgrade.

Is there an obvious way to know whether the encoders are enabled *without* going to the AE tab?
When I look at the bottom right window the "ENC" rectangle is in yellow, and so I thought that the encoders were
on.

Thanks!
