    Hi All
    I'm trying to get the DMX working with a 27CH Card with Build in rJ45. The problem I am having is no lights are lite on the either of the P12S DMX outputs I've configured Protocol ports as followed:

    I'm on the 3_4 firmware

    Code:
    
    Protocol Parameters
    
           ACT        Protocol         BaulRate       Univ         LIOP
    #1     X          DMX               250Kps          29          X
    #2     X          DMX               250Kps          28          X
    
    Keep - Alive Parameters
    
             ACT      Start Zero        Interval MS                 Clear    Total         Univ Size
    #1       X             X                     30                  0         0               512
    #1       X             X                     30                  0         0               512
    
    X= indicate box is checked

    The only difference with my D4 is my
    Interval MS =30
    And my
    Clear Cnt= 0

    Send data to it and check Your statistics page to see if it's receiving data, then look at your cabling.

    Cable are good, When I connect it to my Pixlite 16 I get the DMX hearth beat on the 27ch card. I tried two different P12S's and neither one has the lights on the DMX ports

    Hi Ben

    1. I re-download the Hex files from your site http://clap-supplies.com/firmware/app_hex/ECG_P12S.zip
    2. Re flashed the board back to 3.2 (3.2 .hex and the 3.2 .ahex for the two asic's)
    3. Verified in the web setting that I was on app 3.2
    4. Re-flashed with 3.4 - double checking that I selected the correct .hex and correct .ahex
    5. When check the app ver I got 3.4b and the Asic are 3.4
