    Manfrotto and Litepanels are part of the Vice Group. The dongles are the same for both products.

    Hey Jason

    Just now got my BT dongle and Im having the same problem you had. Tried installing/uninstalling the LYKOS app about 5 times now with no luck. Ive also flashed the latest Gemini firmware a couple of times. Wondering if there was anything else you might have done to get it working.

    Thank you!

    Starting to wonder if they sent me the wrong BT dongle, all sorts of problems. Although connected via light and app there is no control over light other than dim nor do any of the controls match the controls the app is supposed to have over the light. Bit frustrated but hoping it has been a long weekend and I am just missing something obvious.

    It seems the key to getting the app to work is to connect it initially and then close the app AND turn off the Gemini. I tried several times without success. It was only after turning off the Gemini that the app worked and finally recognized the light as the name "Gemini" rather than a lightbulb as mentioned by Jason. Seems to work well. I also wish the Effects Mode was available. That, and it would be great if they released the app on Android. Finally, for clarification, the LYKOS app didn't work for me. Only the Litepanels Director SLD App worked.

    If you're looking to mount it to a beefy baby or anything with a baby pin, you can use the Matthews Junior to Baby adapter here. I have a few of these for mine, for when a junior receiver isn't available. Otherwise, you can use the junior pin on the yoke.
