Setting Showstopper IP Address

This is only for Showstopper 4 Devices

The first step is to set the IP Address on the Showstopper 4 Base. The IP Address is required to send the status over the network to Spikemark.

Like all devices on the Spikemark network, the Showstopper 4 Base needs to be assigned a unique static IP Address. The default IP Address for the Showstopper 4 Base is as it fits in with our default network address range of If your network is configured differently you will need to change the IP Address of the Showstopper 4 Base.

To set the IP address your Showstopper 4 Base:

  • Press the knob to open the Showstopper configuration menu.

    • The knob serves double-duty as a typical rotary knob and a button (much like a car stereo knob).

There is a blinking cursor on the display, and turning the knob will scroll the cursor through the various fields.

  • Turn the knob clockwise until the screen displays >SET IP. Press the knob and the SET IP screen will be displayed (below):

  • Turn the knob and scroll the cursor over to the last segment of the IP address, which is 235 by default.

  • Press the knob to select the last segment and make it adjustable.

  • Turn the knob to set a new value.

  • Once you are satisfied with the new value, press the knob again to accept the value.

  • Scroll the cursor over to the OK and press the knob to set the new address and return to the primary display screen.

If you want to cancel the changes you made to the IP address, scroll the cursor over to the CANCEL and press the knob.
