    Hi


    Does anyone know anything about these dongles? I need to troubleshoot my display, my dongle seems to be putting out bad data but I dont know how to test it.


    Using vixen 2.1 on a laptop, outputting DMX to a Tiger 48ch dmx board.


    Thanks
    Steve

    Hi Steve,
    Have you downloaded the driver from RPM and the net driver as well.
    I am using the same one controlling 76 channels with his controllers and others ones.
    You may need to set the start channel for the tiger.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Colin


    Yes I have downloaded the drivers and all installed okay. Including the ftdi driver.
    The led flashes properly so it should be all okay. I have checked that I have a USB 2.0 and I have measured the voltage at the dongle and I am getting 5.0 volts.


    Besides setting the strating address in vixen, is there another way to set it that you mean?
    For example I have set vixen up as channels 1-64 for my ren-c grinch plugin and channels 65-112 with the DMX USB pro plugin.
    The com and baud rate etc doesnt matter with this dongle because it is an "intelligent" one so I am not sure what else I could try to set.


    Thanks for the answer
