DMX components in Layout with Falcon Controller

I'm sure I'm doing something dumb here. I modified a fog machine to allow me to control with DMX using a 3-channel DMX relay board. I've connected the relay board up to my Falcon F16v4 and confirmed everything is functional using the test functions inside the falcon controller so I know there isn't an issue with the relay, wiring or falcon controller itself. 

So, next step was to create it in xLights and add fog to my sequences (via a DMX effect, setting channel 1 to 255) ... except I never get any fog. I've included a couple of screen shots of the setup hoping somebody can point out my mistake, but let me know if there are other places that need to be looked at

My xLights Layout:

The Falcon Controller Serial Configuration:


It looks like you have only assigned 3 channels to the dmx output in xlights. I always configure a full universe of 512 channels for dmx stuff. The last screenshot from the Falcon board makes it look like there is no variation from 512 channels so that would be where I would look at first.
