Channels supports the following Shure devices:
Connect a Wi-Fi router to the same network as your Shure devices.
Note: If you're using DHCP addressing, only use 1 active DHCP server per network.
Join the Wi-Fi network on your phone or tablet.
Tip: Channels displays the Wi-Fi network your device is connected to.
After joining the Wi-Fi network, your devices will appear in the list of available channels (channel view).
Tip: If devices do not appear, try power cycling any network devices, such as routers or access points.
To make changes to channels in the app, purchase remote control add-ons for the Shure wireless line(s) you wish to control. Each add-on enables control capabilities for devices in that wireless line.
You only need to purchase an add-on once per wireless line, and you can share it between devices that use the same Apple ID. For example, 1 ULX-D add-on enables control for an unlimited number of ULX-D channels.
Tap the AZ↓ icon to sort channels by device name, model name, channel name, or group.
You can also filter channels using the icons at the bottom of the screen:
Swipe right on any channel in the list view to flash a device's LED lights and front panel. This helps you identify the corresponding device in a large rack of equipment.
To assign a color to a channel, swipe left in the main list view. Color-coding channels helps you stay organized when working with many devices.
Channels stay in their color groups until cleared or reset.
Think of Channels as a portable version of WWB's Monitor window that also provides details about other settings on networked devices.
With remote control add-ons, you can use the app to make changes to device settings. The editable settings are similar to the ones in WWB's Properties panel, but you'll be able to control them from your tablet or phone.
Editable settings vary based on the Shure wireless line:
To make changes to Shure networked devices using the app, purchase remote control add-ons for the Shure wireless line(s) you want to control.
If you make changes to a setting that must also be applied to portable devices (microphone transmitters or in-ear monitor receivers), you will need to IR sync the portable device and networked device after changing the setting. For example, if you change a ULX-D receiver's frequency using Channels, you will then need to sync the transmitter to apply the changes.
If you have a ShowLink-capable wireless system and are using a ShowLink access point (AD610 or AXT610), use the app to control transmitter settings remotely. ShowLink automatically sends updates from the receiver to the transmitter, and you won't need to re-sync them to apply changes.
To find the firmware version, IP address, and other details about networked devices, tap the channel. Then tap the information icon to see more information about the networked device.
You can share purchased add-ons between devices that use the same Apple ID.
When a device's battery reaches the low battery threshold, a low battery alert appears.
Tap Settings to adjust when you receive a low battery alert for all connected devices.
Tap Settings to adjust the TV channel width. This setting allows your device's frequency to match the corresponding TV channel width for your location.
Choose between the following:
Using Wireless Workbench, you can set PINs for devices to prevent unauthorized changes. See the Wireless Workbench documentation about Access Control to learn how to set up PINs for your devices.
When a device has a PIN assigned to it, a shield icon appears in the channel's detail view. To make changes to the channel, enter the device's PIN.
The app can remember any PIN you want it to, so you don't need to enter the PIN every time.
You can also clear remembered PINs:
