I'm currently trying to get MA to play nice with ETC. I'm running MA2 onPC with a command wing, connected over CAT5 and outputting sACN. I have control of *most* of the system. Everything after universe 1 is fine, but on universe 1 the system appears to restrict the console only to the same addresses that are part of the house and work light system controlled from Paradigm. In other words, when we try to bring up the entire first universe, only the house and works respond. The system has been tested with a Nomad system and has no problem outputting the entire universe. The other 11 universes I'm controlling have no problem responding to MA.
The dimmer racks receive sACN directly
the rest of the system goes through Net3 gateways
the MA output has been checked with sACN view
In sACNview, what priority do the different control sources have listed?
Could be that your MA has a lower sAcN Priorty than the rest of the control sources.
Could you you click on one of the channels in Universe 1 in sACNview Channel View.
Then above the channel view in the space, there will be Information about that channel,
and who is controlling. In this example, MA2 is sending 100%, but only with 80 Priority.
The Paradigm is winning control of 0% because of it's 110 Priority.
I don't have sACNview open here, but I think DD refers to ETC's implementation of Priority per Address (0xDD) - so while Paradigm may be sending 100 Priorty to the Universe, it can have a higher individual priority for specific channels - this maybe the case here.
In sACNview, if you click an address in Universe 1 view, the control info for that individual address will display. A photo of that - also without MA in that universe might shed more light here.
It appears that the winning console is still MA, according to sACN view. Both universes in paradigm are also set to priority per address, which I suspect may be where my problem lies.
If address one in universe one is not allowing you to control it, Paradigm with priority per address is not the problem because the address view shows that MA has control but is only sending a value of 0%.
Did you ever find a fix for this? I'm currently experiencing this exact same issue
