LOR to DMX Controllers

Hi Folks, previously my displays have been run on 2 Light-O-Rama 16 Channel AC controllers.
I have recently purchased a DMX36MK2 from Hanson Electronics to improve the display with DMX devices. Can anyone point me towards a good example of how to setup the new configuration. I have the advanced version of Showtime and a crossover adapter for linking the last LOR controller to the dmx board. I have followed the limited instructions supplied by both LOR & Hansons' but cannot get the DMX board to operate. I have run the onboard test with success and everything is connected correctly. The only thing I can think of is that I haven't configured the LOR Hardware Utility correctly????


I love blinky lights :)

The onboard test only does the LOR protocol.
If you can post screenshots of the Network Setup for the LOR and DMX tabs and also the prop definitions I may be able to help. S5 has changed massively from LOR S3 and I have little idea of how to do channel setup now.
The 3 places you need to change from LOR to DMX are below. I have no idea how to change 32 or 68 channels to DMX in 1 go.

Xlights is much easier to work with than LOR these days, it's free and nearly everyone on ACL is using it which makes it easier to support and give advice.
