    In my set up I have two DR4 E1.31 to DMX Interfaces. They have individual IP addresses and I am using Unicast. I have < 512 DMX addresses so would like to set them both for Universe 1 (1-512). Can you do this with XLights ?

    Thanks Keith issue is more that XLights auto numbers the X Lights mapping Channel and I have mapped all of them in the 1-512 range in the relevant XLight models. So if I add two DR4's as per 10.10.10.2 and 10.10.10.3 in attached pic then first one is 1-512 and the next 513- 1024. So do I need to re-address the models on the second DR4 or will they be OK.



    (Andrew nice to see you are alive - how is your head)


    Thanks

    Surely using unicast means that that universe can only ever go to one device (IP address) ?

    I have 2 x DR4 in my display and I use multicast for the outputs (universes) that I want mirrored.

    If you want to mirror on the two controllers then you have to use multicast. You can't map the same xlights channels to 2 controllers. What you can do is define 2 universe 1s and send them to different controllers with different data. It's all in how you ask the question.
