Question: Can we use a dual screen video setup from the automation PC so that the Airlite software screen shows up on a second screen.
Answer: Yes, this is possible. Running the AIRLITE METERS on any pc in your LAN network will work since control data is distributed over the LAN.

Question: Is it possible the get the meter and control information for the Windows software, via the VOIP USB port?
We run Rivendell automation on Linux, so the Linux machine needs to be connected to the Main USB.
Answer: The machine which is connected to the USB MAIN port needs to run the Airlite Control application to distribute the control signals over the LAN (UDP/IP).
In such a way any application on any machine can use the Airlite control signals.
This means controlling/configuring the Airlite or use Airlite Meters for displaying meter data.
Even controlling the Airlite from an external location, i.e. your home (when no one is in the studio) is possible through the Internet.

Question: On my Apple Mac OSX the Control software loses connection.
Answer: There is an Appnap script added in the installation which prevents the Control software to go in sleep mode. Some users need to run this manually.
