The number beside G1/G2 is the port for this generator.
In this picture, G1 belongs to port 4 and G2 belongs to Port 5.
4. look at Control tab on Spooky2 software.

Spooky2 GeneratorX-6

Now you could choose programs for each generator!

Note:
The port number may change if you disconnect GX and reconnect again. So please always check the screen when you want to run some programs on GX.

If you want to change the port number, please see this blog.

GeneratorX Stand Alone
When you use GeneratorX without a computer, just look at the side of your GX.

  1. My generator has G1 belonging to port 5 and G2 belonging to Port 6. Should I use port 5 as if it’s port 4 and port 6 as if it’s port five, as seen on my software?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi, Tessa. Yes, you should use port 5 as if it’s port 4 and port 6 as if it’s port five, as seen on your software. Every time you insert generator the port may be changed, so check before you run programs.

  2. My GenX has lost one of the ports….any ideas on how to get it back ? Thanks

    1. Hi, Jeff, could you please follow the below steps to try again?
      Step 1: Go to the top menu of the spooky2 software, find Ultis — Remove Unused Generators from Registry
      Step 2: Choose all devices, right-click, RemoveDevice. Then reconnect GeneratorX and restart spooky2 software.

      If the below steps can’t fix the problem, please follow the below steps to check:
      Step 1: Go to control panel–Programs and Features–windows driver package–Silicon Laboratories
      Please uninstall windows driver package–SiliconLaboratories
      Step 2: go to spooky2 software–ultis–install Spooky2-XM driver and install GeneratorX driver to try again

      Finally, reconnect GeneratorX and restart spooky2 software.

  3. This is not a big deal… But. just wondering..
    my spooky G1 is #12
    my spooky [email protected] is #11
    is there a way to switch them around??
    Thanks

  4. I can get my GenX to run two different programs when connected to the computer.

    When I load GenX with Terrain to run stand alone I see it available in both ports though I only loaded it in one port. Is this correct?

    Then when I unplug it from the computer and restart it, I am unable to run either port. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Yes, after you loaded programs into the generatorX, G1 and G2 will share loaded programs, which is correct. “Then when I unplug it from the computer and restart it, I am unable to run either port. What am I doing wrong?” If you need use generator

    2. “”When I load GenX with Terrain to run stand alone I see it available in both ports though I only loaded it in one port. Is this correct?” Yes, it is correct, after you loaded programs into the generatorX, G1 and G2 will share same loaded programs.
      “Then when I unplug it from the computer and restart it, I am unable to run either port. What am I doing wrong?“ If you want to use generatorX standalone, you need disconnect cable with computer, and we recommend you can check this link to use loaded programs: https://www.spooky2-mall.com/blog/how-to-load-and-run-terrain-protocol-using-generatorx/

  5. QUESTION: Since the Generator X has 4 ports, does this mean it can put out four frequencies at one time, and can you explain why two terminals are red and two are blue? Thank you.

    1. Hello, in theory it is possible to emit four frequencies at the same time, but we do not recommend doing this, because running too many frequencies will disperse the power of the generator. You can use Boost to run multiple frequencies at the same time. And the color difference on the port does not mean anything, but simply facilitates our customers to distinguish between out1 and out2.
