Hi

Edited Ethernet>RJ45

Would someone please share an example of setting up the F48v4 to control DMX lighting.  I've pretty much got my head around setting up ports and channels for E1.31 and I'm familiar with using DMX but so far not been able to get my controller and XLIGHTS to see my DMX lighting.

I've made an adapter cable, (RJ45>XLR), not sure if I need to change the jumpers on the board adjacent to the RJ45 socket, (not near the board at the moment)?

I'm trying to set up 2 ADJ TriPar Profiles set to 6 channels and 2 Kam Gobo Tracers set to 11 channels.

Screenshots of each configuration page would help massively.

Also do I use the standard setting for each effect e.g.
* FX1(6 channels) DMX start channel 1
* FX2(6 channels) DMX start channel 7
* FX3(11channels) DMX start channel 18
* FX4(11 channels) DMX start channel 29

Cheers ;~}

What pinout did you use?  It is very important to get it right, including polarity, or it won't work.  Also, its not Ethernet.

The jumper should come from the factory already set to DMX, but they could have been changed to LOR.  Make sure you have the jumpers in the DMX position.  And again, its not Ethernet.
