    I am having a very annoying problem with my ECG-P12R that I purchased late last year.
    I am unable to get it to work properly on either sACN or Artnet. I also have a ECG-P2 and that works fine on Artnet (my preferred protocol to avoid conflicts)
    A bit about the setup.
    I have the P12R set to 192.168.0.247 and the P2 to 192.168.0.246 both on 255.255.252 subnet. For control I am running an ETC Gio console that is outputting sACN to a Pathport 8 gateway and I have 2 other parthport single universe(port) boxes also running on sACN totalling 4 DMX universes.




    The reason I need to use Artnet is because I have a second console an ETC ION that is going to be controlling the LED using Artnet doing pixel mapping with a media server.
    I am using WS2811 pixel strips I have 100m worth and will be grouping them in lots of 9. When I have tested this setup with the P2 it works fine over artnet but on the P12R it does not work. When I switch to sACN I get the strips to light up but then flash to full white then back to the programmed level and colour. This occurs over both controllers. I have checked and test mode is off in the webpage and the switch thinking it was that but it still occurs.
    I have attached screenshots of the 2 controllers info page. Is it something to do with the app version on the P12R that is causing the problem?

    hi imblunt can you do a screen shot of your string config and effects page please. also is it a p12s or a p12r as you say it is a p12r but it looks like it may be a p12s just double checking.
