Unit 1 light works On CTBPC16g3-Unit 3 side of the RJ45 cable (i.e. new RJ45 cable on Unit3 that is not working) Moved the RJ45 to Unit 1 Unit 1 lights work Tried multiple power sockets on Unit 3 Updated firmware on unit 3 from 1.06 to 1.09 Cycled Unit ID from 3 through 9 back to 3 Cycled Unit 3 Universe to 130 then back to 3 Rebooted computer Re-installed LOR software 4.4.4 Access Unbit 3 through the LOR DMX USB dongle to configure the unit Tested lights through dongle and Hardware Utility, - they work. The green led top left of the board flashed green until I plug the rj45 cable in, then it goes steady green I have read and re-read everything I can find. I know im missing something really simple, really small Please could you point me to either a video, manual or checkbox I am missing to help me get these to controllers working.
