TCP protocol for Resolve Transport Control

PostThu Mar 01, 2018 12:47 am

Referencing the DaVinci Resolve March 2017 12.5 manual, there is transport control (chapter 46). My assumption, after reading this, was that a running Resolve instance would open up a listener on port 9060. However a netstat shows no port open with Resolve running, and attempting to connect with nc of course fails.

So my question is: How do I enable this Resolve Transport Control server mode?

Running Resolve 12.5 Studio, version Mac OS X 10.12.6.

Thank you.

This chapter in the Resolve 14 manual has added this key bit of info:

To use this protocol, you must first type the following string into the Advanced panel of the
DaVinci Resolve System Preferences:
System.Remote.Control = 1
