Hi everyone
Has anyone been able to get an Axcent III and AXB-NET box working 100%(Okay, I'd be happy with 95%). I am trying to get 23 of these little $^#@ to talk and respond to the commands but it seems to be an up hill battle and I am considering swapping these dinosours out for the newer NI series. Any comments or success stories.

    I've done some "Master to Master" type stuff with them it it worked just fine.... What are you trying to do with them?

    Hi Frankie
    I want to be able to control all functions that the client has available on the local TP, remotely. I tried to do some work with them but they are very fickle. I had a friend take a look at them and he was unable to have them work at a reliable level.(The guy is one of the top 10 programmers in Canada) I have been told by different people at AMX that the amount of time required to program these boxes would be more effort and costly than switching to a NI series. Also I have been told by AMX that the number of boxes that can work on one network is dependent on many variables, 6-16 boxes per network. This is were I am running into problems when I try running a few of the boxes together.

    I agree. I have yet to get them to work in that way.. All I have done is "m2m" and they seem to work like a champ for that. I would just put some NI's in and be done with it.

    Thanks for the input Frankie. M2M isn't to bad but the Multi-box is a real kicker. All the info I can get to support a swap-out of these boxes will help prove my point to my upper management that nothing(almost) is impossible but at what costs. Also there is a speed isuse with the boxes. The network maybe 10/100 but they slow to a crawl from the box to the master.Thanks again.

    Definately sounds like time to cut a PO for a bunch of NI-700's... Don't know if we're allowed to mention pricing in here or not.
