Hub confusion
« on: October 26, 2016, 09:15:14 AM »
 Having a mental block (old age) with regards to addressing my Hub.
I have a prop with a starting address of 9937.  I set my Hub addresses to 2 & 2 for A and 3 & 3 for B.
When I use xlights to test the lights they start at 5842.  I seem to be off one universe, but I don't understand why.

When you programmed the *SC, which start channel did you specify in the UI?

What is feeding the pixelnet signal to the hub, is it a F16v2 or EtherDongle or ??

And just to make sure, is the *SC plugged into one of the groups of 4 ports that is set to universe 'B'?

I am feeding the Hub from a FPD primary port.
There is no output on any of the ports when sent to 9177.
I tried on a second Hub and have the same problem.
I connected another model with an address in the second universe and it works fine, but it works on all outputs on the hub!

Did you set the A/B jumpers on the individual groups of 4 outputs so that some are on Universe B?

Look beside the output RJ45 jacks for the SSC's, there is a 3-pin jumper for each set of 4 jacks.  The jumper is labeled "A B" and let's you specify whether those 4 jacks are on the "A" universe (2 in your case) or the "B" universe (3 in your case).  There are 4 of these 3-pin jumpers scattered around the board.  Each 3 pin controls 4 output jacks.

Chris I must have slept through the jumper class.  I missed those jumpers completely.

Thanks for you patience-

Glad you got it working.  I don't have one of these boards so was going from memory and re-checking the assembly manual PDF.
