On Cue

On Cue Apr 22, 2013 12:26PM EDT

I have not use On Cue much yet but planning on it tonight.
Is it best to use On Cue via wi fi or Blue Tooth or does it matter?
In the basement at church we may actually have a weaker wi fi signal.
Any tips in this regard?

To use OnCue: Make sure everyone has the Ad-Hoc networking turned to On. To do this: Utilities Menu--> Settings--> Live Bar Options--> Include networking turned to On--> Done. Now when they are viewing a chord chart, they will see a round icon in the bottom right corner of their chord chart that has a dot or a wifi antenna symbol in it. They want the antenna symbol to be showing (this means the network is turned on). Now the master iPad will do the following: Share menu--> Beam--> Place a check mark next to all the devices you want to control--> If the devices do not appear, tap the refresh button in the bottom of the wireless sharing box and wait about 30 seconds for the devices to show--> Then tap Enable OnCue wireless streaming to On--> This will send an invitation to the other iPads--> Once they accept, you will have control over what they are seeing.

If you have trouble getting all the iPads to show in the Wireless Sharing box, make sure everyone has the same version of OnSong. Then pick to use either Bluetooth or Wireless and turn the other off in the iPad settings app. Brian, in your case, I think I would use the Bluetooth if you thing the wifi signal is going to be week.

Wow, such a fast response! That's one of the reasons I love you guys and OnSong.

Followup questions:
1. Should we turn "Include Networking" to OFF when not using ON CUE or is it adequate just to tap the round icon in the live bar to turn off the antenna symbol?
2. If I have good wi fi signal, is it better to use wi fi for some reason?
3. Always turn off Bluetooth or WiFi when using the other (Bluetooth or WiFi) for On Cue, then?

You are very welcome!

1. You should be fine to just toggle using the live bar icon. Or you can just set it and forget it.

2. Neither is better or worse. There have been some situations where the two compete for a signal and can cause problems with OnCue.

3. I would do it on a case by case basis. There are people who use OnCue with no trouble with both wifi and bluetooth active, and then we have people who have trouble when they are both active. So, play it by ear and see what your situation calls for.
