Has anyone used the Kulp K32A-B as a bridge to drive LOR A/C controllers?  FPP has output settings which look to be LOR, yet the output channels are confusing... I can select from TTYo0 thru TTYo6, and TTYs0 thru TTYs6.  I'm not sure how they correspond to the 4 output connectors on the K32A-B....??    I've also seen some YouTube that indicates that I need  cross-over cable to get this to work... Not sure if the K32A-B needs this..

I have multiple K16s with multiple LOR CTB16 AC light controllers on them. You do not use the 4 output connectors on the K32. Look for the two 3 screw terminal ports labeled TTYS1 and TTY S2. You then cut the end off of a network cat5 cable and strip the blue and bluewhite wires and screw them into ttys1 or ttys2. Then in xLights in the layout you choose DMX-OPEN as the protocol for your model (light string).

Also, you have to set the CTB16 controllers with the LoR HU software. You set them 1-x by the number of CTB16 controllers, not ports. Your first controller will be set as Unit 01 in the HU, the second Unit 02, etc... In xLights it will set your models as DMX-OPEN Channels, and that channel number will relate to the plug end on your CTB16. So, Unit 01 has dmx-open channels 1-16, Unit 02, dmx open channels 17-32 and so on.

Possibly dumb question:
Blue = positive
Blue/white = negative?
Is there a ground?

Thanks
