I am having a similar issue. Using open DMX and FTDI chip drivers, I can’t seem to get my moving head light to respond. I have static values (0-255) on each input channel in order using a merge chop so that I have all my channels in the order I want, then feed that into my DMX out. I’ve set all the static values properly based on the included channel mapping sheet that came with the light. I can see my open dmx device, and it’s selected as output, and I get a data transfer light showing the frames are updating. But I get nothing on the light. I’ve even tried a wave on each channel to vary the value from 0 to 255 on loop and the only thing I’ve managed to get was the light tilts 180 degrees very occasionally. I’ve set the address on the light to start at 1 as well so I know it should be doing something. Any ideas? I thought maybe it’s because the wave was throwing float values, but when I use the static values on the channels I still don’t get any response.
my open dmx works fine in q light controller plus, as does the moving head light
