Hi qazx

This system is proprietary stuff, and is serviced and installed through a dealer network only. The software actually comes with the product, so if you didn't get a copy with the equipment, I am sure that the manufacturers will oblige you. Another approach is to get another agent on the go, or at least if you tell SpeakerCraft what has happened, they should be sympathetic and supply you a disc of the software. Goodluck, let me know how you get on.

What do i need to program a speakercraft mzc64, mzc66, mzc88 ?

This info is meant for all the Speakercraft MZC controllers.

The software used to program the mzc controllers is called EZ TOOLS the latest version of which is 401. This version handles both the IR database versions released in these units.

V313 is the older one and 401 is the latter.

you will need a laptop which runs windows, EZ tools is native to XP but should work emulated under later versions of windows. I have this running on linux under wine with some basic command line mods to allow the com port to be seen by wine, this works well although some of the rendering of graphics looks incorrect but still good enough to use.

You also need a cable with a female 9 pin d sub at one end and a stereo 3.5mm jack plug at the other, use screened cable.

The correct port to use on the back of the mzc is the jack com port not the dsub rs232 port.

There is no way to copy theprogram off a machine, you have to either have the origion project file that works in ez tools or start from scratch with a new file.

If you need to transfer from one mzc to another one if the first mzc unit has failed hardware, you can remove the rom chip which is plugged into the control board located behind the front panel. This can be swapped over to the other mzc and is the identity of the mzc controller.

For making up a communication cable use the following pins..

Pin2 dsub to tip of jack
Pin3 dsub to ring of jack
Pin5 dsub to earth jack

Trust this info helps.

When it says 'no controller' on CAM6.6T what do i need to do to fix it?

Have you called the installer that put the system in? No Controller means exactly what it says: the keypad powered up and it doesn't see the controller (CAM6.6). This can be caused by a short or break in the Blue pair of the CAT5, the punch down on the back of the keypad or the RJ45 connected to the port on the back of the CAM is loose. Should be easy to troubleshoot for someone familiar with the installation of the system.

I have a Russound CAV6.6 Rnet controller. The controller will turn on, but I can get any sound out of the speakers. It used to work just fine. Now the lights come on, but no sound from the speakers. I took...

Have you changed any connections behind the CAV recently? This happened to an associate of mine once and it just turned out to be something simple. This may or may not be the situation in your case. Check to make sure your source audio cables are connected to the correct source number that you assigned in the programming (Ex. AM/FM Tuner = Source 1). Also make sure your audio cable is connected to Source 1 IN (and not the "OUT").

Narrow down the source of the problem:

Make sure the keypad you are using to test the CAV is not in "Mute" mode. Press the "Pause" button to engage/disengage from mute.

To further troubleshoot your issue if the above is not the case you want to use a device (such as an ipod tthat you are sure the audio output is working using a stereo mini to red and white rca cable) and plug into each source input (one at a time) behind the Cav then monitor that source# on the keypad to see if you hear the ipod on any of the sources. If you hear the ipod playing on some sources and not others it obviously means some of your source inputs are having problems and the unit needs to be shipped to Russound for repair.

Make sure the front of the Cav6.6 has the proper colored lights lit up. When no keypads are on the zone should show red, when a keypad is off the color should be green for that zone, if there is a short circuit with the speaker wire the CAV might be in protection mode and the color might show orange.

Hope this helps.

Itunes assigned to CD stereo outputs to zone 1 but not zone 2

Ron Digital audio will only reproduce in the surround area you will have to connect using analog connections in order to get that sound in the 2nd zone

Zone 2 problem

I know this is old and im sure you have it solved by now, but it might be a good idea to check the amp setting of Zone 2. Is it switched to Internal or external? I remember something strange about this amp in that when you change from using the rear surrounds and go to use them in Zone 2, it resets the amp setting or something like that. Hope it helps if you still need it.

No output to Zone 2 from preout to 2nd power amp for second room speakers

OK, From what I am understanding is that you both are trying to uilize a digital audio source (HDMI cables are digital audio only) and hence this is the problem. You can only use an analog audio source (connection) to utilize the audio output to zone 2. A simple soultion is to use the analog audio in conjuction with the digital. Connect the digital (HDMI, Optical, Coax) to the main zone and the left and right audios to zone 2.

Second zone not working

This amp allows you to pick a secondary source for those other rooms. Did you by chance accidentally change it from the "SOURCE" designation that makes room 2 listen to same thing as room 1? Just a thought.
