Bug Fixes: 
  • MIL-3114: Fixed a bug that could prevent devices appearing in Dante Controller after being renamed.
  • DC-622: Using the 'Show Hidden Devices' feature with devices that use private custom encodings also exposed channels that cannot typically be used for audio routing in Dante Controller. This has been fixed.
Known Issues: 
  • MIL-2928: Sometimes for enrolled DVS devices, in the Device View > Device Config tab, the sample rate and encoding drop-down menus can erroneously show a message indicating that the selected option is not valid. Workaround: Refresh the Device Config view.
  • MIL-3936: For enrolled legacy devices, it is possible to apply sample rate pull-up using the Presets function. Workaround: Disassociate the device, then remove the pull-up from the device using the Device Config tab.
  • MIL-3932: For enrolled devices, the Clear Config button (in Device View > Device Config) is erroneously enabled (but will not perform the function).
  • DC-637: Presets cannot be loaded from a folder with a hash character (#) in the folder name.
  • DC-640: When viewing device enrolled in a Dante domain, The Ctrl+E shortcut causes all devices to disappear from Dante Controller. Using the shortcut again restores the devices.
  • MIL-4416: For Dante adapter devices that are enrolled in a domain, audio settings in the Device View 'Controls' tab cannot be used. Workaround: Un-enroll the device before making changes to the Controls tab.
