Test sequence not turning on right dmx channel


Recommended Posts

hi 

 first go at  dmx using lor software

problem is   i made up a test sequence in lor   running  it though a separate   com port (5)    though a holiday dongle  version 2  into cat5  and into a ray wu 27 channel dmx  unit . but  the  lights are not going on as programmed into lor ,( they are going on all over the 27 channels) but seem to be in a consistant pattern)

)  the lor listener is working fine

 i am getting  dmx signal at the dongle (green flashing light)

  on the controller the red light is flashing 

has any one had this problem or can solve it for me ?

thanks in advance

does the 27 chan. board have dip-switches? If so make sure #10 is off that switch is for testing only. and are you sure the board is addressed properly?

the dip switch no. 10 is in the off and   lights all go when  in the on position 

 

 

also wondering whether i reset board  back to factory setting  ( if this is possible)  and start again 

 

thanks for replies

So the lights are coming on, but not how you expected. What are the lights doing? Are they out of time, wrong color, wrong lights are coming on?

 

Could also be how you have your lights wired up to your controller.

Hi  sorry i have not replied i have been  tied up  on work!!

 the lights come on but not as expected . 

i am not rgb  just  one colour  as this board  will eventually be used as animations on 27 ch.

I set the board up in  dmx   universe tab in network preferences

used the adapter which showed up  as numbers and letters  and , protocol  used  was  ENTTEC DMX UBS PRO

hope this helps queries 

thanks  for your input

I don't know how far you can go, but I ran the Holiday Coro actidongle with a 100ft cable leading to a bunch of those small 3 channel controller and they ran without any issues.
