How to Install Nuvo driver on myServer5

 

  • Purchase AV Family (see link below)
  • Run myInstaller Installation on your myServer PC
  • If you are connected to the Internet, you should see the Nuvo driver listed in the Media category. Select and download it.
  • After the App is downloaded, click to install it.
  • Restart myServer

Configure the Controller:

  • Click on the Family Manager in the Server Apps window.
  • Double click on the AV folder
  • Click the Add button to add a new device row.
  • Type a "friendly name" like "Nuvo1"
  • Select the Nuvo driver
  • Select the Nuvo Model like "GrandConcerto"
  • Type the Nuvo ID.  The first unit should be "1"
  • Select how the Nuvo controller is connected to myServer PC.  Typically for the first unit, this would be the Com port.  For subsequent units, it would be RNET.  Note that the first Nuvo RNET Out is connected via a CAT5 short cable to the second Nuvo RNET In connector.  And, the ID for the 2nd would be turned to the "2" position.
  • You can optionally type where the unit is, but that information isn't used by the system.
  • If you go to the Drivers area, you will see the Nuvo driver is now populated with your system choices.
  • Hit the Refresh button (the circle with arrows) and then Close the Family Manager App

Configure your new audio zones:

  • Click on the Aides button in myServer
  • Click on Zones.
  • Create a new Zone by clicking the Plus button on the left.
  • Name your zone ("Pool")
  • Select the "Nuvo1 GrandConcerto" in the Audio Switching Device dropdown
  • Select the Output number that you have used on the Nuvo for that zone's speakers or amplifier (if using the low level outputs instead of speaker outputs) in the Audio Switching Output dropdown.
  • Click Save
  • Create all next Zones same way

View your results:

  • Go to your browser, go to your Home page on myUI.Tablet web app and click on the Zones button on bottom left.  Then click Sources button, then Google Play.
  • Select a channel to listen to in GMusic.
  • Enjoy the Music!

Note: in the below connection diagram (Russound picture, but Nuvo is similar), you will note that we have Controller1 zone 8 output connected back to the Allonis Server Microphone Input.  This is for Allonis's sound spectrum analyzer software to send messages to the Lighting Family.  Allonis's DMX / RGB controller then turns on the RGB lights to the beat of the music...and with the color intensity depending on the sound pressure in that spectrum!  cool stuff....
