Yosemite/Resolve/JL Cooper panels

I gave in and loaded Yosemite this week, while moving to Resolve 11 at the same time. I hadn't had any trouble with my old panels in so long that I didn't even think about it. Yeah, I know...

After I got everything loaded, Resolve refused to see the panels (or the other way around) so I loaded Eclipse 3.1 Ethernet software, but even after manually typing in IP Adress/Subnet, etc., Davinci isn't seeing the panels and neither is the Eclipse software (shows up as "not connected" when I run the software itself). I've spent two days searching online for answers but I'm not finding anything. Any suggestions out there? Thanks either way...

You should not install the JL Cooper software. Resolve talks to the panels directly via TCP/IP.

My guess is something is not right if your ethernet setup.

Thank you both, Rohit and Andy. Once I deleted the software and shifted IP addresses, the panels showed right up when I loaded Resolve. I appreciate the help!

Hello, I'm having a similar issue with Yosemite. Wondering if the IP address on the panel must correspond to the one in System Preferences? And if you are recognizing with DHCP (with or without manual address?) Of course I've already set the same IP on the panel and in Resolve.

Having same issue here, removed cooper ethernet software, can't get resolve to see the board. Tristan did you get yours working? Do i need to make changes in the network setting from DHCP?

Here's what I got from BMD to get it working:

Resolve needs to communicate directly with the Eclipse CX. With this in mind, remove the Eclipse Software if it’s installed and reboot. You should now be able to connect to the Eclipse.

If you have the Eclipse CX directly connected to the computer, make sure of the following:

1. The network configuration of the computer is set to ‘Manual’,
2. Set the IP address of the computer different than the IP address of the Eclipse CX.
3. Configure Resolve with the IP address of the Eclipse CX.

For example,
If the Eclipse CX is set to then set the computer to and configure Resolve to find the Eclipse CX at

The IP numbers are arbitrary as long as they are compatible with each other.

If you use a subnet mask of, that means that the first three numbers must match otherwise, the computer or Eclipse will ignore the Ethernet traffic. Thats why both devices start with 192.168.254.xxx.

When you use DHCP (automatic) settings, the computer will get its settings from the router. If no router is present, the computer will self assign an address like 169.254.xxx.yyy.

Because the first three numbers don’t match between the Eclipse ( and the computer (, they won’t be able to communicate with each other.
