I am trying to get the Colorsource AV to talk to a visualizer.
I have tried Vision and using the Music The Musical model on Capture.
I have pinged and there is connection.
I have set sACN as the provider.
I used Visions DMX viewer and there is no movement on the channels.
Messing around I tried artnet and got some response though it was not consistent or correct, I have been unable to duplicate that. Tried turning off the RDM.
I am at a loss.
I would love to get this to work for training purposes.
I would suggest using sACNView | sACNView, a tool for sending and receiving the Streaming ACN control protocol and/or The ArtNetominator - Free ArtNet DMX Monitoring and Troubleshooting Software on the visualizer computer to verify that you are getting these protocols across, and at what refresh rates. Please also make sure you are using a wired Ethernet connection between your ColorSource AV and visualizer computer.
Almost all modern PCs have multiple network cards (some virtual).
Visualizers have a setting for which network card to use, this is likely to be the issue.
In Capture, the setting is found under Tools > Options > Connectivity: "sACN" (BSR 1.31 or E1.31 in older versions)
Vision likely has a similar setting, I've not used it though.
Well....I went in and changed the fixtures on vision to universe 2, using Artnet. That worked. I have used the same laptop to run the visualizers with both an Ion and a Chamsys QuickQ so I know the connections are solid. So the fixtures in the CS AV are on universe 1 and the fixtures in Vision are addressed to universe 2. I dont understand it but at least it is working.
This did it...it is now talking to capture....Thank You!
It was set to Auto and I selected the ehternet adapter and restarted.
Be sure to confirm your settings for the Network Universes:
ColorSource Universe 1: Artnet Universe 0.0 - DMX Addresses 1<512 aka Universe 1 in sACN
ColorSource Universe 2: Artnet Universe 0.1 - DMX Addresses 513<1024 aka Universe 2 in sACN
