RFR with Congo/CongoJr
Getting Started with Congo/CongoJr
The iRFR has the same functionality as the Net3 RFR.
The RFR works within its own field and this field can be cleared from the console. All channel intensity levels generated by the remote can only be recorded into targets from the remote control itself.
RFR - General Functionality
The upper display line shows information about the selected channel(s). The labels for the soft buttons are on the two lower rows of the display. In all displays the wheel controls the level of selected channels - except in the parameter controls display where the two encoders control the displayed two parameters (like pan/tilt, etc...)
Soft 1-6 give direct access to basic channel functionality. Pressing M (MORE SK) will always return to this level.
In all displays, the wheel controls the level of the selected channel(s).
Pressing M (MORE SK) from the Top Level will show the other menus.
RFR Channel functionality
The most common channel functions can be used to select channels and set levels (At Mode Command Syntax is supported from Congo v5.1). This includes the console shortcut C & CH to clear all channels in A.

Press M (MORE SK) and then GROUP to get a list of recorded Groups to select from. Use the wheel(s) to focus the item you want and click the wheel button to activate it. # GROUP selects the item directly without showing the list.

Press M (MORE SK) and then DEVICE to enter the Device sub menu. When you have selected the Device sub menu, pressing ParamF/ParamC/ParamB will select the parameter pages for the selected devices. Two parameters at a time will be displayed in the middle of the display and controlled by the two wheels. Press a wheel to toggle between coarse and fine for parameters.
Next, Last and Select All functions are used to step within the current selection, Select All will return to the original selection.
ParamF, ParamC and ParamB keys are used like Focus, Color and Beam keys on the console. These will cycle thru the available parameter pages for the selected device(s). Use the wheels to adjust parameter values. Clicking the wheel will toggle coarse/fine mode on the wheels. Fine mode is indicated with a "-" symbol before the parameter value.
