Here is my layout.
I have a Falcon Bridge connected to the following chain of controllers.
All these are the same Fbridge connector and same DMX domain.
Fbridge -- > DMX Breakout -- > DMX Branch 1 --> Lynx Exp 1 -- > MR16.1 -- > Lynx Exp 2 -- > SSR4.1 -- > SSR4.2 -- > Lynx Express 3 -- > MR16.2
Fbridge -- > DMX Breakout -- > DMX Branch 2 --> SSR4.3 --> SSR4.4 --> Lynx Freestyle --> SSR4.5 --> SSR4.6 --> Lynx Express 4 --> MR16.3
Now here is what is puzzling.
The MR16s are outputting to the MR16 lamps correctly, the Lynx Freestyle is operaing all its lights ok and the SSR4s are controlling its lights correctly.
However there is no output from the Lynx Expresss at all.
I tested this setup using xLights in test mode with either all outputs selected or the specific channels for each of the controllers. Same results.
I have eliminated the breakout box as the problem by pulling each of the DMX cables going to the different section having the Lynx expresses that were not responding and plugged it directly into the 3rd jack defined as DMX on the Falcon Bridge that I programmed for DMX output.
I verified that the Lynx express do work by connecting my Bobcat DMX tester to the same cable and controlling the lights connected to the same DMX branch.
I may have to convert back over to using USB DMX dongles for the time being until I can figure this out.
There is something definitely different with the DMX data stream from my Bobcat tester and the Falcon Bridge.
Any additional debuging or suggestion of what to look at would be appreciated.
