    I've just had a quick mooch in the manual because you're question intrigued me (we've never sold Jester ML's with wings) and my reading is that you would need to be in Chans+Subs mode ideally as this would likely give you the fader movements needed to do memory editing.
     
    I'm guessing (and Jon or Keith will say if I'm wrong) that Snapshot only grabs the current value of a DMX channel and doesn't "sense" any change in values.

    I'm not an ML expert - I've only trained folk on the base Jester but it sounds like a 'tagging' issue whereby values you set for gobo's and colour end up tracking in to subsequent cues.
     
    Essentially, you need to tell the desk explicitly what you want onstage for the cue where you want a plain strobe, without 'tagging' you'd see a lot of unnecessary movement on fixtures as values changed between states that didn't really need to.
     
    Have a read of the Jester ML manual around page 36 it might cause you to have a 'lightbulb moment'.

    If you're using the Orb and iPad on an existing network (which can complicate things) then you need to check the following...
     
    A. The IP addresses (the 192.168.010.xxx) part will have to be an allowable range on your network otherwise the network itself simply won't let the messages passed.
     
    B. The iPad will need to know in it's network settings the Gateway address for the network i.e. the routers address so it can send the stuff it needs to send to the Orb via the Gateway to the network. Similarly - the Orb will also need the Gateway address setting.
     
    In many respects - if you're in a performing area where you don't need to use the internet whilst you're controlling the Orb then one of the small TP-Link wireless nodes (something like http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-WR702N-Wireless-Extender-Set-top/dp/B006PYGWG6/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1391444716&sr=1-2) would do the job - sorry the TPLInk site was down.
     
    With the Nano router - it will probably self power from the Orbs USB and sit on the back of the Orb with some BluTak - I don't know what the router uses in term of current for it's supply but it could just as easily be run from a USB plugtop charger too.

    It's being unpredictable which is usually a sign the battery needs swapping - a 10 minute job to open the case and swap.
     
    The onboard battery preserves the data in the RAM which is setup parameters and show memories plus fixture data - when the battery voltage drops, the RAM behaves weirdly. The battery is non-rechargeable, so depending on the overall temperature in the room it's being stored in and the make of the battery - its "life" is around 18months to 2 years.
