    I have a problem and it is most likely something I am doing wrong.
    I have a mega 60 to control the elements of my dumb mega tree.
    I have wired all of the led's up and had them soak testing all ok on test cycle.
    Today however, I ran a sequence for the first time and it all seemed a little odd, So I quickly setup a simple test sequence, and it certainly is odd.
    The colours flicker and it doesn't seem to know what colour to turn on.
    I am using an old laptop with vixen 3 going through an ecg d4 and into the mega60. from there I go out to a 27ch board.
    I have tried different network cables, and shorter ones. I have tried terminating the dmx with jumper on the mega60.
    I thought the esta / lor jumpers may be wrong, but they seem to be in the rights spot.
    Has anyone got any idea as to what may be causing my issue?

    Faulty drive?

    I have started an upload of the videos of what they are doing and will post a link shortly.

    I always try da_dmx as the 1st step when testing to take the sequencer and the settings out of the equation. It can be downloaded at http://www.da-share.com/software/da_dmx/ . If you are going through an E1.31 bridge then try da_e131 from http://www.da-share.com/software/da_e131/ . If shows the problem exists still then send me a message and I will dig deeper. If it doesn't show a problem then you'll have to pop up some details of your sequencer settings.
