bbrescia Posted October 30, 2015 Share Posted October 30, 2015 This has to work by tomorrow, ha! I've got an E1.31 network set up - laptop is the driver. The smart controllers (AlphaPix 4's and 16's) work great, firing all the smart strip for fascia outlining as expected in Universes 2 through 27. I have reserved and assigned Universe 1 addresses for my LOR stuff (LED light string props and dumb RGB), starting with of course, Universe 1, channel 1. I will use only 4 LOR AC controllers for tomorrow's show, along with 3 LOR CMB24D's. Questions: 1. Do I use a feed from one of the E1.31 network switches to go first into the LOR AC controllers (with a cross-over cable)? Then LOR AC #1 to #2 to #3 to #4 (Daisy chain)?2. Can I also just take a feed from a network switch into any or all LOR CMB24D's? I will set the jumpers for DMX mode... or do they need to be daisy-chained in channel order configuration?3. Because everything will be in high-speed Ethernet mode, does the hookup order matter? For example, I've got 8 RGB floods, each with its own dumb controller inside the flood, set to a unique Universe 1 address. They are fed by CAT5 cable. Thanks!
