Why do you need to set a receiver to Passive mode from Active mode?
When using multiple receivers at one time to record a session, one receiver should always be in 'Active Mode' and the rest should be in 'Passive Mode'. If both/multiple Receivers on the same encryption are in Active mode there is the chance of 'Stomping' where the allocation of device slots can overlap each other
The Active receiver assigns the devices to each slot (time per communication 'cycle' where each device has the opportunity to send/receive to Receiver) in the broadcaster, this is so data can be backdated when the device is out of range and how the software knows which data/live message belongs to which Device.
How to set Receivers to Passive Mode
- With the receivers connected, open the console software and press the 'F9' key
This will open the Broadcaster (BC) GUI
- In the BC GUI, select 'Gpsreceiver' and expand the window
- Notice the 2 connected receivers, under 'Mode' notice how both receivers are 'Active'
Next to one of the receivers modes, select the "Toggle" button to turn one receiver 'Passive'
- Minimise/navigate away from the Broadcaster window and continue to run a live session as usual.
If you restart the console, close the Broadcaster or disconnect and reconnect a Receiver you will need to follow steps 1 through 3 again.
