  1. Well, no luck with support. They were going to get back to me regarding the pin code, but nothing to date. Regarding the LCD fix, basically they don't have parts for this mixer. Sad...really. I've owned this mixer since 2012, and there is still nothing that touches it from a product idea standpoint. Unfortunately, the implementation just needed a few more years of development, and that didn't happen. Fortunately, I did find a "Sold for parts" M20D, and was able to get my mixer LCD, up and working again. I am good until the next breakdown. I'll probably buy up a third M20D for additional parts, if I find a good deal on one.
  2. Looks like the LCD display on my M20d has died. What are the options for getting this repaired. Does Line 6 still work on the M20d mixer. Can anyone suggest a repair shop near South San Francisco, CA? Also, since the LCD is not working, I cannot access the Info page>WiFi settings on the mixer, to get the security pin. When I try to access the security pin on my one currently connected Ipad, it says it's only accessible from the mixer. Does anyone know a work around for getting the current security pin, when LCD is out? Is there a default pin, after reset?
  3. There have been reports from others, of sound cutting out during a show. Our band has experienced this as well. For us, we lose all sound. When this happens, the only remedy is to turn off the mixer, then turn it on again. After we restart the mixer, it has not happened again in the same show. Now, before every show, I turn on the mixer until it finishes booting, then I turn it off and reboot for a second time, just in case. There have been a few posts about a ribbon cable inside the mixer, that is very close to the metal back wall of the mixer. On occassion (sudden movement, ect) the cable can touch the metal mixer wall and short the system. Some guys have opened the mixer and put a strip of tape on the mixer wall, to stop the cable from touching. This may or may not be related to the problem. Photos in this thread
  4. Here's a new one. Not even sure how this is possible. Firstly, at last weekends show, I got a black screen and error message (didn't write it down, but something related to "App") upon initial power up of our M20D. Talk about crapping z pantz....... Fortunately, after turning the mixer off, and restarting, It powered up successfully. The next problem appeared during the show. I had two different microphones, each plugged into a different channels of the M20D, appearing on the same fader. I don't remember the exact channels, but it was like the mic plugged into channel 12 was appearing at channel 6 along with the mic plugged into channel 6. Channel 6 was used for a sax player, and channel 12 was used for a trombone player. I set the level for the sax player, and it was fine, then the trombone started playing, and the volume was much louder, but also appearing at fader 6. Channel 12 showed no signal. Never seen that before. I'm thinking that maybe a reinstall of the v1.20 firmware is in order. Is this possible? Would my saved setups still be available after the firmware upgrade? One note, the setup used was a very old setup, which I had not used in quite a while. Could it have gotten corrupted, along the way?
  5. My humble opinion, as a Dreamscape system owner since 2012. Looks like the death nail for the Dreamscape line, occurred when Yamaha bought out Line 6. Yamaha has their own PA products, they didn't need the trouble. They probably also had some idea, that the poor design of the M20d would eventually start causing many of the problems that we are seeing now, like intermittent sound, level changes, trim problems. People getting shocked due to grounding issues. (the above issues taken from posts on this forum). Better to let the products fade into obscurity, than to prolong it's life with a firmware update. Users have been adding feature requests for the M20d for 5 or 6 years. Not one was ever implemented. The android app never materialized. Of course, they'll say that it was never promised. The dreamscape products could have been a great line, but I'm afraid, their days have come and gone. The rest of the life cycle appears that it will be repair work, and eventually, the dark recesses of basements and attics, or the trash heap.
  6. For the second show now, the sound on our M20d has disappeared, mid performance. One second, we are singing along, next second, zero sound from the mixer. The only fix is to restart the mixer in the middle of the song. Last night, we only had two mains, (Fender Expo Speakers) and one monitor connected to the analog outputs of the M20D. Has anyone found a cause, or even better, a solution for this problem? BTW, we do have v1.20 firmware.
  7. Search the forum, and you'll find countless posts with this same topic. Going back for years. It's not going to happen. Yamaha bought Line 6. I'm guessing that they would rather focus on Yamaha Live Sound products, leaving M20D owners to wonder what might have been. Ask the M20D owners who have been waiting years for an Android app for the M20D, or those owners who posted hundreds of Ideas on the Ideascale page for the M20D. None of which has been developed. Then you have responses like the one below. .
  8. Welcome to the Stagescape ghost town........not sure if you'll get a response from anyone relevant. My guess is that Yamaha (who purchased Line 6) has all but given on any PA products coming from Line 6/. There has been zero development on any of the Stagescape products, despite years of ideas being suggested by users. If you like the M20d as it is, go for it. If you're looking for something with possible future developement, look elsewhere.
  9. Thanks for the help. I disabled my Vipre antivirus, and I can now see the website as before. Now I just have to figure out how to stop Vipre from blocking CSS.
  10. For many weeks now, the formatting on the Line 6 Forum and website has been screwed up for me, with many most images missing. Is anyone else getting the same thing? I've tried Chrome, Firefox and IE, but all have the same problem. For years, the formatting was fine. See attachments
  11. Here you go: To create a Group encoder: 1. Double-press any unassigned hardware encoder. - The Select Channels For Group Encoder window will open, displaying all channels available for grouping. 2. Tap the channel icons you’d like to include in the GroupName the Group in the Group Name field, then tap the blue OK button. - A Group controller strip will appear in the M20d stage view, automatically assigned to the hardware encoder you originally double-pressed. Now you can adjust all 3 channels with the one Group encoder.
  12. No problems, It's just nice knowing that someone else visits this forum.
  13. Sorry for the confusion. You are correct about the Line 6 guy. No. I have not seen any press releases pointing either direction. Matter of fact, I haven't heard or seen anything related to Line 6's PA product line. Based on that fact, I'm inclined to agree with the comments, and state that it is only speculation.
  14. Check out this Anderton review video of the new Line 6 Helix pedal, wherein the Anderton Music guy speaks of the return of the original founder to Line 6, and their desire in his opinion, to become the leader of guitar modelers again, getting away from other things like PA gear and such. Starts around 4 minutes into the video.
