    Hi,

    I have LSP Advanced and having issues getting it to output to E1.31 and DMX at the same time.

    I can write/run sequences for either the DMX controllers or the E1.31 controller, but not both. I have DMX configured for Universe 1 and E.131 on Uni 2,3,4 and 5. Is there a trick/tweak required to get them to play nice together?

    This is the second year in a row I have run small tests with LSP and it has worked, but failed for the actual show. Not enjoying it very much.

    Did you set the E1.31 output and the USB output to different zone numbers in the configuration?

    I just tried adding a USB (Open DMX) dongle to my existing LSP sequence (that uses E1.31) and it works as expected.

    I can see the E1.31 data (using SACNview) and USB DMX data (using a DMX Pro dongle) being output simultaneously.

    Maybe there is a conflict of universe or zone numbers or maybe the LSP release you're using has a bug? I have version 2.5.4650.19419 of LSP sequencer installed if that helps.
