How to Identify the Correct Port Number in Spooky2 Software 4

Share this:

Spooky2 XM Generator or GeneratorX/GeneratorX Pro is essential to run Spooky2 programs. However, many customers are confused about how to identify the generator port in the software. So, this blog will demonstrate how to differentiate and find the correct port numbers for each generator in the Spooky2 software.

How to identify the port number of Spooky2 XM Generator

First, please connect your Spooky2 XM to your PC or laptop.

Then, turn on the Spooky2 XM and open your Spooky2 software.

Go to the Control tab, and you will see your generator on the left side of the screen. If your generator is not detected, go to Utils and click Rescan Devices.

Spooky2 XM has only one port, so it is easy to find its port number. If you want to use multiple XMs at the same time, we suggest you connect them one by one. After one generator is identified, you can make a note on it. Then connect the next one, and click Rescan Devices, the new Generator Port Number that appears on the screen will be the second XM.

How to identify the port numbers of GeneratorX/GeneratorX Pro

Once the generator is connected, turn on the GX/GX Pro and open your Spooky2 software.

Go to the Control tab, and you will see two port numbers on the left side of the screen since are two generators built-in for each GX/GX Pro. If your generator is not detected, go to Utils and click Rescan Devices.

Now, check the display screen of the generator to identify the ports. For example, in this picture, you can see G1 is port8 and G2 is port 9.

  1. Hi. I followed the procedure as described here. Rescanned the devices, but than I don’t see on my GenX a port number after G2 or G2. When I than start remote program, I do see lights blinking on my remote, so I guess this connection is working. But why don’t I see the port numbers when rescanning?
