  2. In the “Split Input Sources” section, select “Local”.
  3. Click “OK” to save the settings and return to the main controller window.
  4. Click “F5-Start” to put CSRDS back on-line.

  6. Use the “Browse” button to select the CSRDS.exe (application) in the Center Stage Live installation directory.
  7. Click “Next” and change the name to reflect the satellite instance.
  8. Start CSRDS using the new icon and select “Properties” from the “Tools” menu. This will start the local instance which will stop as soon as you open the properties window.
  9. Uncheck the “Local” option in the “Split Input Sources” section.
  10. Select CSRAS as the music format.
  11. Click the yellow “Schedule” button.
