I bought my StreamDeck mini for another purpose but I happen to own a 6300 with a Maestro. I understand how it may work with a PC but can it work on a Maestro which is a Windows PC??

StreamDeck is a USB device which needs drivers and programs. You do not have access to the OS in the Maestro, so it will, unfortunately, not be possible to use a StreamDeck directly with a Maestro with no PC.

The Mac is another platform that supports the Stream Deck. Am I correct that it is possible to connect the Stream Deck to a Mac and use it to send commands to FRStack on a PC (local? or even remote?) to then command the Flex?

Could it be used on a iphone which connects to the Flex via network?

I would suggest visiting the Elgato website and reviewing the device requirements. It only mentions Mac and Windows.

@paul — I’m pretty sure you could use it on your iPhone to command FRStack on a PC that then commands the Maestro or Flex. Sadly FRStack only runs on a PC at the moment.

There is frstack in the apple store that uses the app instead of the hardware interface

@Paul - do you have a link to the Apple store “FRStack” app that you are referring to? I looked but didn’t see anything.

How and where do you install the drivers to work on a Maestro? Or maybe you don't.  How do you connect FRStack to the Maestro?

Rick, first of all you have to install the latest version of FRStack3, then open the folder where FRStack resides.You'll see this file "com.mkcmsoftware.restcall.streamDeckPlugin" click on it, this will install it into FRStack. Next locate this file in the same folder "FRStack Rest.streamDeckProfile" click on it and it will install.
I forgot to mention that before doing the above you have to load the Elgato Stream Deck driver. You can get it at
https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/downloads

it's called Stream Deck for Windows.
Have fun
