The remote control feature of the Behringer X32 worked very well. Though I would contend that using the PC version with a windows8 Laptop provided a more full featured experience. Without going through each feature one by one, it appears that the PC version of the software provided control of everything you would want to do in a live show. Using a windows8 computer that included a touchscreen made it very easy to select and perform various functions. I had an old IPAD, one of the originals, so I had to upgrade to the latest OS available for that iPAD, version 5.1.
Setup was very simple once I remembered that their two RJ45 (Lan connections) on the back of the X32. I couldn’t readily see the back of the unit as I had to lean over the top of the X32 to see the back. Once I put the connector into my LAN connection closer to the power port. I could easily ping the X32. I put the IP address as 192.168.1.1 for the X32. I connected the LAN port of the X32 to one of the spare ports on my Hawaiian Tel wireless modem that is used for both my IP TV and Internet service. The network mask is 255.255.255.0, which is pretty standard for any router connected to an internet provider.
I jumped on my laptop and pinged the X32 and got four reply messages indicating that there was IP connectivity between my laptop and the X32 mixer via my wireless internet service.
To use the Ping command on your PC first hold the windows key down and press R. Type CMD on the window and DOS like window will open. In the command window type ping 192.168.1.1 or whatever IP address you decided to assign to the X32. You should see four responses from the X32 that is answering your ping (This is a standard LAN testing procedure)
